“I found this recipe on the back of a box of brownies several years back. These are so yummy, and my favorite way to make brownies. Once you bite into them, you'll know why. The wonderful flavor of the pecans, and the chocolate fudge-like frosting makes these super. I haven't used pre-packaged brownies in a long time and have adapted my brownie recipe to this. I hope you enjoy this sweet treat.”
