A brownie recipe with pecans
What is better than Chewy Chocolate Pecan Brownies? I mean really chewing and super chocolatey! Nothing!! There is nothing better and more delicious and addictive. These guys right here are to die for!
I am a chocolate addict I know! I am always all about Chocolate Mousse or Chocolate Cupcakes etc. But these brownies will convert anybody and everybody to the dark side of chocolate.
Why you'll love these Chocolate brownies
What I love about these Chewy Chocolate Pecan Brownies is that they are BROWNIES! Okay, I know that it sounds like I am losing my mind. But what I mean is that they truly have the texture and flavor that a brownie should have.
I find that often brownies are more like a square slice of chocolate cake, with a spongey texture and a more cocoa powder taste than a true chocolatey taste. I sound a little crazy I know. But once you make these and sink your teeth into one of them... you will understand!
The best part is the tiny bit of crunch between all the chewy chocolatey goodness. This is of course thanks to those delicious pecans. I don't like to put a lot of pecans into my brownie mix, because I never want the nutty flavour to overwhelm the chocolate flavour. So I only use a tiny bit of pecan nuts, just to give it that crunch.
To make these particular brownies, I also like using a nice combination of milk chocolate with dark chocolate. I do this because when you use only dark chocolate, the bitter taste can often be a little overwhelming and strong, and when you use only milk chocolate it often doesn't taste chocolatey enough and it ends up being extremely sweet. So in order to make these scrumptious brownies, I used a good balance of the two types of chocolate.
How to make these brownies
To make these fantastically delicious Chewy Chocolate Pecan Brownies all you do is melt that the chocolate in the microwave (make sure you stir it every 30 seconds). Then mix together all the dry ingredients and slowly add the eggs, butter and vanilla. Continue to mix and then add the chocolate and the pecans. Ensure that all the ingredients are well combined and then pour it into a pan or brownie pan. Bake for 40min at 160ºC and there you have it! Easy right?
