Brownies to Die For

I made these during the Packer/Bears game. These were very yummy. See my notes about using the cake mix in place of the brownie mix. Very good!

Brownies to Die For
adapted from Cookie Recipe.com

1 ( 19.8 oz) brownie mix ***see recipe below
1 c sour cream
1 (16 oz) container coconut pecan frosting
1 c semisweet chocolate chips
1 c chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350º. Grease one 9 X 9" baking pan. (Beth used 9 x 13 )

Mix brownie mix according to box directions, omitting 1/2 of the oil asked for. Add the sour cream and coconut pecan frosting, mix and spread in the prepared pan.

Bake at 350º for 20 to 30 minutes.(We needed 40 -45 minutes in a 9 x 13 ) Be careful not to over bake or they will harden and be impossible to eat! About 5 minutes before it is done take it from the oven and sprinkle semi sweet chocolate chips all over the top along with the chopped pecans. Place back in the oven for 5 minutes, take out and use a spatula to spread the chocolate chips around to frost the brownies.

Makes 36 brownies

**** I did not have a brownie mix, but had a chocolate cake mix. I found this recipe on Food.com and used it in place of the brownie mix. I only used 1/4 melted butter per the recipe above.

Cake Mix Brownies

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/3 cup dark brown sugar (if you like a less sweeter taste use 1/4 cup)

1 teaspoon vanilla
