  • For the brownies
  • 7 ounce/200 gr dark chocolate chips
  • 1 stick 100 gr butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • For the topping
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F /175°C. Line an 8''X8'' (20X20 cm) square cake pan and line with baking paper.
  2. Place the chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in microwave in 30-second increments until chocolate is softened and melty. Stir in between heating, until smooth.
  3. Add salt and sugar and whisk well until blended.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, stirring in between additions.
  5. Add flour, chopped pecans, and baking powder and mix just until incorporated. It over mix, it will ruin the fudgy texture of the brownies.
  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan, and smooth the top.
  7. Sprinkle pecans evenly and sprinkle with the kosher salt.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until set in the edges but slightly soft in the center.
  9. Cool completely at room temperature and cut to squares.
