Pecan Pie Brownies

These pecan pie brownies have a fudgy chocolate brownie base, and a gooey pecan pie topping. A simple, easy dessert that is great all year, but is especially perfect for the holidays!

In a large bowl, combine melted butter, vegetable oil and both sugars.

Whisk well and then add in eggs and vanilla. 

Add in salt, flour and cocoa powder. Gently stir to combine.

Add chocolate chips and stir until just combined. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake at 350°F for 25-28 minutes. Cool brownies while you make the topping.

Combine sugars, corn syrup, egg, butter, vanilla extract, and salt in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir continuously until the butter has melted and the mixture has thickened slightly.

Remove from heat and add in half the pecans. Stir to combine and then set it aside to cool slightly.

Pour the topping evenly over the top of the brownies. Add the remaining pecans to the top, making sure pecans are well spread out.  Bake for another 15-18 minutes.

Brownies can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
