Pecan Pie Brownies Recipe


Pecan pie brownies combine the rich, fudgy goodness of brownies with the sweet, nutty flavor of classic pecan pie. This dessert is perfect for those who love the best of both worlds. The following recipe will guide you through making these delicious pecan pie brownies.


For the Brownie Layer:

  • 1 box (about 18 ounces) of your favorite brownie mix (plus ingredients listed on the box, typically eggs, oil, and water)

For the Pecan Pie Layer:

  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


1. Preheat Your Oven:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×9-inch (23×23 cm) square baking pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.

2. Prepare the Brownie Layer:

  • In a mixing bowl, prepare the brownie mix according to the package instructions.
  • Pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking pan and spread it evenly.

3. Prepare the Pecan Pie Layer:

  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter.
  • Stir in the sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil while stirring constantly. Let it boil for 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
  • In a separate bowl, lightly beat the eggs and vanilla extract.
  • Slowly pour the egg mixture into the slightly cooled sugar mixture, whisking continuously to avoid cooking the eggs.

4. Add the Chopped Pecans:

  • Stir in the chopped pecans into the mixture.

5. Layer the Pecan Pie Mixture:

  • Carefully pour the pecan pie mixture evenly over the brownie layer in the baking pan.

6. Bake:

  • Place the baking pan in the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the edges are set, and the center is slightly jiggly.

7. Cool and Slice:

  • Allow the pecan pie brownies to cool completely in the pan. You can speed up the cooling process by placing them in the refrigerator.
  • Once cool, remove them from the pan and cut into squares or bars.

8. Serve:

  • Plate your pecan pie brownies and serve them as a delicious dessert or treat.


  • You can add extra pecans to the top of the brownies for decoration and added crunch.
  • If you prefer a more gooey pecan pie layer, bake the brownies for a slightly shorter time. Conversely, for a firmer pecan pie layer, bake them a bit longer.
  • These pecan pie brownies are best enjoyed within a few days of baking, but you can store them in an airtight container at room temperature.

These pecan pie brownies are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth and are perfect for special occasions, potlucks, or just a delightful homemade dessert. Enjoy the blend of chocolatey goodness and nutty sweetness!
