Southern Chocolate Pecan Pie Brownies Recipe

A sweet treat.


1 9″ frozen pecan pie
1-1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder


Step 1: Preheat oven to 350°F.

Step 2: Line a 13″ x 9″ metal baking pan with foil (to allow you to easily lift out the brownies), and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Step 3: Remove pie from wrapping and discard paper circle. Let thaw at room temperature for 2 hours.

Step 4: Place chocolate chips and butter in a large microwave-safe glass bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir and microwave on high in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until smooth. Let cool slightly.

Step 5: Using an electric mixer on low speed, beat sugar, eggs and milk into chocolate mixture until blended.

Step 6: Cut pie in half and break one half into about 6 pieces. Add broken pieces to chocolate mixture. Add flour and baking powder. Beat on low until just blended.

Step 7: Cut the remaining pie half into 1″ chunks. Using a wooden spoon, stir into batter (batter will be thick). Spread in prepared baking pan.

Step 8: Bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes. Let cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Cut into squares.
