I wish I could take credit for this brilliant idea, but I saw it on TV one late, insomniatically charged night. Some chef was helping this woman with 1600 kids make a homemade dinner and this was their dessert. It looked so easy that I had to try it.
Here's how I made it:
- Box of brownie mix
- oil, water, eggs as directed on the box of brownie mix
- 1/2 cup more water
- Pie crust
Combine brownie mix, oil, and water (all of it!) in a bowl and pour into the prepared pie crust. Put the pecans on top and bake in the oven as directed on the brownie mix box, but add about 10-15 extra minutes. It maybe more or less depending on your area so keep an eye on it. When it starts to look like brownies do when they're done and/or a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean then you can take it out of the oven.
Play around with it. Let me know what you do. I think this would be good with some raspberries or maybe even some coconut flavoring? Hmm....chocolate goes with so many things...
