Homemade Chocolate Chip Pecan Brownies

9x13 pan of Chocolate Chip Pecan Brownies

Mitzi and her girls came over and ate leftovers with us after church last night. I did make a fresh pan of brownies. Judy gave me this recipe years ago, and it's a favorite around here. I add chocolate chips and pecans to mine, but the brownies are delicious without them! This recipe makes a nice, full 9x13 pan of brownies. Theses have a little, thin, crisp upper crust, but a moist and tender bottom. Yummy!

I have used this recipe to make gift mixes. Just mix together the flour, sugar and cocoa, chocolate chips and nuts; spoon into a zippered bag. Place zippered bag into a clear gift bag. Tie with ribbons and add a tag that says:

Chocolate Chip Pecan Brownies

Pour contents into mixing bowl.
Add 1 cup of canola oil and 4 eggs.

Mix just until everything is moistened.

Pour into sprayed 9 x 13 pan.

Bake for 40 minutes.
