“Here's how to please chocolate lovers and pecan pie lovers with one scrumptious bar. These are the creation of Camilla V. Saulsbury and appeared in her book: Brownie Mix Bliss. These bars have a bottom of chewy chocolate brownie topped with the familiar brown sugar pecan goodness of pecan pie. The author prefers a cakey brownie to contrast with the pecan filling which is why she calls for the three eggs in the brownie batter. But if you want a fudgy brownie, reduce the eggs to 2. Do give these a try!”
