I really hardly ever buy brownies from a mix. I actually went out and bought a box of Duncan Heines brownies to make this recipe, and I'm very glad that I did. The kids just inhaled these babies and wanted more. They were very interesting to look at, what with the chip and pecan-filled brownies, white chocolate "filling" and the frosting on top. For the brownies themselves I used regular pecans, but for the frosting part I used Chinese pecans, which are sweetened. I'm going to make these again, but I'd like to try it with my regular "from scratch" brownie recipe.
These brownies are so good, but very rich. Maybe a little too rich for me, however, that won't stop me from eating them. LOL I only had 1 cup of white choc. chips, so I decided to add it to the brownie mix, I had extra choc. chips, so I used that for the frosting. So mine were more of a black and black brownie. Also no nuts, or the kids wouldn't eat them. These brownies were great, and definitely a chocoholic's dream come true!
tasty treat verysimple it uses things thst are usually in your household (if you have a sweet tooth kid) so you dont have to go and spend that much money !
