Want to make your brownies extra amazing? Add a premade frozen pecan pie to your homemade batter. The result? Mouthwatering brownies! Take the frozen pie out of the freezer 2 hours before you need to prepare this recipe so that it has time to thaw.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cut pie into cubes. Set aside.

Step 2

Microwave 1/2 cup butter and chocolate chunks in a glass bowl at HIGH 1 minute. Stir and microwave 1 more minute. Stir until mixture is smooth.

Step 3

Beat chocolate mixture, sugar, eggs, milk, and half of pie cubes at low speed with a heavy-duty stand mixer until blended.

Step 4

Add flour and baking powder, stirring with a wooden spoon until blended. Stir remaining half of pie cubes into batter. (Batter will be thick.) Spoon batter into a 13- x 9-inch pan coated with cooking spray.

Step 5

Bake at 350º for 50 minutes. Cool brownies completely on a wire rack. Cut into triangles or squares.

Step 6

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Mrs. Edward's Frozen Pecan Pie.

I made this recipe to the letter and noticed that the formula doesn't include salt. The finished brownies are sweet and chocolatey, but even 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt would have made them better. Also, adding extra pecans—approx. one cup, prior to baking—would heighten the "pecan pie" aspect of this dessert.

I have kind of a silly question; when you cut the pie into cubes do you include the crust? Thank you! This looks so yummy I am trying it today!!

I make a variation of this, make your regular brownie batter and spread in baking dish, open one can of coconut pecan ready made frosting. Stir it well inside the can, dot TBLSPs of the frosting all over the surface of the brownies, swirl with a knife. Bake per instructions on the brownie mix. Very easy and there are never leftovers when taken to a potluck.

I typically will bring a plate of brownies over to a friend's when I visit (http://imunchie.com/chefmichael/munchies/chocolate-brownies) but nothing as elaborate as this! That looks amazing!
