For the Brownies

  • 1 box brownie mix
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • ½ cup vegetable oil

For the Pecan Pie Topping

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1½ cups light corn syrup
  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups whole pecans


For the Brownies

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F
  • In a large bowl, make the brownie mix according to package instructions.
  • Spray a 9×13 casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Pour the brownie mix into the casserole dish and spread evenly with a rubber spatula.
  • Bake for about 25 minutes, according to package instructions.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes. 

For the Pecan Pie Topping

  • While the brownies are baking, combine all pecan pie filling ingredients except the pecans in a medium sauce pot and whisk.
  • Set over medium heat and continue to whisk for about 10-15 minutes. The butter will fully melt. The mixture will bubble and rise during whisking and then fall back down as it begins to caramelize.
  • Once the mixture is thick and jelly like in consistency, and a medium honey in color, remove from heat and add the pecans in.
  • Use a rubber spatula to fold the pecans in. 
  • Pour the pecan mixture onto the baked brownies and spread evenly.
  • Bake again at 350°F for another 25 minutes. The pecan pie filling will flatten and have small bubbles when finished baking. 
  • Remove from the oven and let cool completely before cutting to serve.



*Brownies need to be fully cooled before slicing!

*Use a strong knife or pie server to loosen the edges before cutting and serving.
