  • 1 box brownie mix 13 x 9 size plus ingredients stated on box


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups light corn syrup
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbs bourbon
  • 2 cups pecans roughly chopped


  • Preheat oven according to brownie package instructions.
  • Whisk together the sugar, corn syrup, eggs, butter, bourbon and vanilla in a small saucepan. Place on the stove top over medium high heat and begin to cook, stirring continuously.
  • Mix brownies according to package instructions.
  • Pour brownie batter into a greased 13x9 inch pan and place in oven to bake for 20 minutes. * see note about cooking time below
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Let cool to room temperature before cutting.
