This is a rich brownie recipe, with a pecan layer .Moist and incredibly tasty with a dominant crunch of pecans is surely
a treat for any occasion.
Pecans could be substituted for walnuts, or any nuts of your choice.
In this recipe the brownie layer is baked for 15 minutes, and then the pecan layer is poured on the partially baked
brownie, and baked again for another 12-15 minutes.
I baked it the previous day and served the following day for the flavours to set in.For the chocolate you could use a
mixture of dark and milk chocolate.The sugar for the brownie can be muscovado or brown.
