  • 1 cup whole pecans or break into pieces.
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven 350 F. Grease a 9 x 13" cake pan or put parchment paper on the bottom of pan and grease. (This protects the pan from knife scratches when using a coated baking pan.)

  • Add eggs and vanilla, beating until combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients, beating to blend.
  • Stir in the whole pecans, breaking with the mixer.
  • After brownies are baked, sprinkle the chocolate chips on top.
  • Return to hot oven for 5 minutes or until chocolate begins to melt.
  • Spread the melted chips over the brownies.
  • Cool and cut into squares.
