Pecan pie brownies combine two of the best desserts into one insanely delicious treat! If you love the flavor of chocolate brownies and the richness of pecan pie these pecan pic brownies will be your new favorite thing to eat for dessert.
There are few things I enjoy more in this life than pecan pie. I’ve been making pecan pie for as long as I can remember. I use my grandmother’s recipe which maybe I will share here. However, my kids only like it. It’s a little too rich for them, but you know what they do gobble up brownies. I do not know why it didn’t occur to me to combine the two sooner! Now the whole family is satisfied. Here’s the recipe.
