Pecan Pie Brownies
As you all know, Thanksgiving is hands down my favorite holiday of all time. I mean the turkey, stuffing, sides, pies… I could go on forever. It’s a flawless holiday. Except for one tiny problem… where is the CHOCOLATE!?! I don’t think I’m alone in feeling this. It’s a magnificent meal that would be made so much better by a sweet chocolate ending.
That’s where these pecan pie brownies come in. They’re fudgy, crunchy, nutty, and so darn easy to make. You’ll love this easy Thanksgiving dessert!
So… what are pecan pie brownies?
Okay, prepare yourselves. What I’m about to describe *may* be the the best Thanksgiving dessert you’ll have on the table this year. Picture pecan pie, but with an indulgent brownie base. Except the brownie base is way thicker, with a slightly thinner layer of nutty pecan pie. The result is a decadent chocolate dessert with just the right amount of pecan topping to give it a crunchy, sweet finish.
They are *chef’s kiss* perfecto!
What do you need to make this fun Thanksgiving dessert?

Why are pecan pie brownies so good?
Pecan pie + chocolate is such an underrated flavor combination. I almost always make this bourbon chocolate pecan pie for Thanksgiving and it’s always a hit. And these pecan pie brownies are absolutely no exception. Chocolate is the perfect addition to this classic Thanksgiving flavor. The combination of a fudgy chocolate base with a salty-sweet, nutty topping is truly out of this world.

I used a 9×13 pan instead and they came out perfectly! I still used what the recipe called for the pecan pie topping. Had the brownies in for 15mins, let cool for 5, gently poured the pecan pie mix, then baked for another 25 mins. They taste so delicious!
Had to cook 20 minutes extra but we’re delicious!
These are very good, but the baking time needs to be increased significantly! I read the comments and baked for 20 extra mins. I checked them and it’s kind of hard to tell if they are done bc the topping is so gooey and wonderful. I let them coo and cut into them and they are pretty underbaked. I could have baked them for an additional 15 mins!
I followed this recipe to a T, even used the exact box mix and I’m unsure how they were able to get a brownie consistency. I baked the brownies for the allotted time, added the pecan filling and cooked an addition 30 and the consistency is that of pudding. Super dissapointing especially since the ingredients aren’t inexpensive.
I tried these yesterday, and while they taste nice, they did not come out correctly!!! They took another 15-20 minutes to cook and most of the pecan pie topping sunk to the middle/bottom… not sure what I did to goof it up!!
