Two favorite desserts in one! Gooey brownie with caramel pecan pie topping. Your guests will thank you! Serve with a big dollop of lightly sweetened whipped cream. Can be made a day ahead and stored, in an airtight container, at room temperature.

  • Whisk brownie mix, oil, 2 eggs, and water together in a bowl until well combined. Spread batter into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and leave oven on.

  • Whisk brown sugar, corn syrup, 2 eggs, bourbon, vanilla extract, and salt together in a bowl. Add melted butter slowly, whisking until well combined. Add pecans and stir to coat in the filling. Pour gently over the brownie layer; spread evenly using a spatula.

  • Bake in the hot oven until center is set, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool to room temperature, at least 2 hours.

Cook's Notes:

Honey can be used in place of the corn syrup.

You can use light or dark brown sugar.

If desired, chill the final product in the fridge for a shorter cooling time.

Editor's Note:

The directions for making brownies are based on the particular brand mentioned. Follow instructions on the box if using a different brand.

This was a big hit with our Life Group. Cooking times need to be a little longer. Gooey goodness. Would use coarsely chopped of pecans next time. Read More

I have now made this 5 or 6 times. It is one of my favorite "wow" desserts. I use Hershey's Triple Chocolate Brownie Mix from Sam's for the brownie -- awesome in itself. Note: if you have a non-stick spring-form pan you do NOT have to use the aluminum foil. The baked brownie is VERY strong and malleable. Run a knife around the edge and the spring-form comes right off. Flip the brownie over on to some parchment paper and start running a rounded knife around the pan base and it will come right off also. Read More

Wow! Were these ever delicious brownies! I used pecan pieces instead of halves, and had to bake them in a small rectangular pan, but they were extraordinarily good. I’ll be making these a lot, especially at the holidays! Read More

So rich and delicious. Small pieces are plenty. I used maple syrup instead of Caro in pecan mixture for just a little more flavor. Elegant-looking with whipped cream as a dinner party dessert. Read More
