  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Pour brownie batter into the prepared pan, smoothing as needed with a spatula.
  • In a medium bowl combine topping ingredients. Stir until well combined.
  • Spread topping over brownie batter, then bake brownies for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out almost clean.
  • Cool brownies on a wire cooling rack, remove from pan and cut as desired.
