For the Brownie Layer:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

For the Pecan Pie Topping:

  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease an 8×8 inch baking pan and line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. Prepare the brownie layer: In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter and granulated sugar. Beat in 2 eggs and vanilla extract.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the cocoa powder, flour, salt, and baking powder. Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until well blended.
  4. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan, spreading it into an even layer.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, then remove from the oven (keep the oven on).
  6. While the brownie is baking, prepare the pecan pie topping: In a bowl, combine the chopped pecans, brown sugar, corn syrup, 2 eggs, vanilla extract, and melted butter. Stir until all the ingredients are fully combined.
  7. Gently pour the pecan pie topping over the partially baked brownie layer, spreading it out evenly.
  8. Return the pan to the oven and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes, or until the filling is set.
  9. Remove from the oven and let the brownies cool completely in the pan.
  10. Once cooled, lift the brownies out of the pan using the parchment paper and cut into squares.
  11. Serve the pecan pie brownies as is or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
