New Orleans Praline Brownies

New Orleans Praline Brownies

Betty Crocker® fudge brownie mix and pecans turn into a delicious brownie - perfect for dessert.

PREP TIME 25 Min
TOTAL TIME 2 Hr 10 Min
SERVINGS 24

Ingredients

Brownies
1 box (1 pound 2.3 ounce) Betty Crocker® fudge
    brownie mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs as called for on
    brownie mix box
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Praline Frosting
1/2 cup whipping cream
6 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Method

  1. Heat oven to 350° F. Spray bottom only of 13 x 9-inch pan with cooking spray.
  2. Make brownie mix as directed on box for fudge brownies, using water, oil and eggs. Stir in chopped pecans. Bake as directed. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  3. In medium saucepan, mix cream, butter and brown sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until mixture comes to a boil. Continue cooking 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in pecans, powdered sugar and vanilla. Cool 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  4. Spread frosting over brownies. Allow to stand 30 to 45 minutes, or until frosting is set. For bars, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows.
  5. Cut into bars about 45 minutes after spreading frosting over the brownies. This will allow you to cut the brownies while the frosting is still just slightly warm and will minimize any cracks in the frosting.

Expert Tips:
To toast pecans, preheat oven to 350° F. Spread pecans in a single layer in a baking pan. Bake about 5 to 7 minutes or until golden and toasted.
