  • 1 box Brownie mix must have instructions for making in 13×9 pan + ingredients listed on the package

Pecan Pie Filling:

  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups Light Corn syrup
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 2 cups Pecans roughly chopped


  1. Combine the sugar, corn syrup, eggs, butter, and vanilla in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat stirring often.
  2. Mix brownies according to package instructions.
  3. Pour brownie batter into a greased 13×9 inch pan and place in oven to bake for 20 minutes. * see note about cooking time below
  4. As the brownies bake the filling in the saucepan should have thicken enough to coat your spoon (about 15 minutes). Stir the pecans into the mixture and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes until the mixture reaches the consistency of runny oatmeal. You want it to be loose enough to pour over the brownies but not liquid.
  5. When the brownies have finished pre-baking remove them from the oven and pour the pecan pie filling over them spreading it out to cover the brownies completely.
  6. Place them back in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the filling only jiggles slightly in the middle when you move the pan.
  7. Let cool to room temperature before cutting.

Serving Tips:

  1. Allow the Pecan Pie Brownies to cool completely in the baking pan before slicing and serving. This will help them set properly and prevent them from crumbling.
  2. Use a sharp knife to cut the brownies into squares or rectangles. Wiping the knife clean between cuts will help create neat edges.
  3. Serve the brownies on a decorative platter or dessert plate for an appealing presentation.
  4. For an extra indulgent treat, serve the brownies warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream on top.
  5. Garnish each brownie with a sprinkle of chopped pecans or a drizzle of caramel sauce for added flavor and visual appeal.

Storage Tips:

  1. Store any leftover Pecan Pie Brownies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3-4 days. Make sure the container is tightly sealed to keep the brownies fresh and prevent them from drying out.
  2. If you live in a warm climate or during hot weather, it’s best to store the brownies in the refrigerator to maintain their freshness. Place them in a single layer in an airtight container or wrap them tightly in plastic wrap.
  3. Before serving refrigerated brownies, allow them to come to room temperature for about 15-30 minutes to soften slightly.
  4. You can also freeze leftover brownies for longer-term storage. Wrap the individual brownies or the entire batch tightly in plastic wrap and aluminum foil, or place them in a freezer-safe container or resealable plastic bag.
  5. Frozen brownies can be stored in the freezer for up to 1-2 months. To thaw, transfer them to the refrigerator overnight or microwave them briefly until warmed through.


  1. Can I use store-bought brownie mix instead of making the brownie base from scratch? Yes, you can use store-bought brownie mix as a shortcut. Follow the instructions on the brownie mix package to prepare the batter, then proceed with adding the pecan pie filling and baking according to the recipe.
  2. Can I substitute the corn syrup in the pecan pie filling with another sweetener? While corn syrup is traditionally used in pecan pie filling for its thick and sweet consistency, you can substitute it with maple syrup or honey if preferred. Keep in mind that using a different sweetener may alter the flavor and texture of the filling slightly.
  3. Do I need to toast the pecans before adding them to the pecan pie filling? Toasting the pecans before adding them to the filling can enhance their flavor and add a nuttier taste to the brownies. To toast pecans, spread them in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 8-10 minutes, or until fragrant. Let them cool before adding them to the filling.
  4. Can I make Pecan Pie Brownies ahead of time for a party or gathering? Yes, you can prepare Pecan Pie Brownies in advance and store them in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator until ready to serve. They can be made up to a day ahead for optimal freshness.
  5. Can I freeze Pecan Pie Brownies for longer-term storage? Absolutely! Pecan Pie Brownies freeze well and can be stored in the freezer for up to 1-2 months. Wrap the individual brownies or the entire batch tightly in plastic wrap and aluminum foil, or place them in a freezer-safe container or resealable plastic bag. Thaw frozen brownies in the refrigerator overnight before serving.
