Having made this brownie recipe a few times now I like to use a 9×9 baking dish. You will have a little extra pecan pie filling using the quantities listed below so keep that in mind when making this recipe.

The quantity of pecan pie filling included with this recipe works best in a 9×13 baking dish but you will have to double the brownie batter to get the right thickness. Make sure you plan accordingly if you are going to make these awesome brownies.

In addition to the ingredients listed on the recipe card, you will also need the ingredients to make the brownies.

While this may differ from brand to brand, it usually involves eggs, water and vegetable oil. The directions on the brownie package should tell you baking times based on the size and type of baking dish you use.

You will need the following ingredients to make this Pecan Pie Chocolate Brownies recipe (see recipe card for quantities): Chocolate Brownie Mix, White Sugar, Light Corn Syrup, Eggs, Unsalted Butter, Vanilla Extract and Pecans.

  1. Preheat the oven according to the directions on the brownie package.
  2. Prepare the batter according to the directions on the package. Pour the brownie batter into a greased 9×9 pan and bake for 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, whisk together the sugar, corn syrup, eggs, butter and vanilla extract. Cook over medium-high heat stirring continuously.
  4. Once the filling in the saucepan has thickened, about 15 minutes, stir in the pecans and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes. The consistency should be loose enough to pour over the brownies.

    OMG what a recipe. I could have eaten half of it at one sitting. I love the fact that you use the boxed brownies, which makes it faster if you are in a hurry. For anyone who loves brownies this is a must and a keeper for sure.
