Ingredients:

1 box (1 lb 2.3 oz) fudge brownie mix (sorry BC but I love King Arthur Flour’s mix)
Water, vegetable oil and eggs as called for on brownie mix box
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Praline Icing (recipe follows)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 13 x 9-inch pan.

2. Make brownie mix as directed on box for fudge brownies, using water, oil and eggs. Stir in chopped pecans.

3. Bake brownies according to package directions. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

4. Spread icing over brownies. Allow to stand 30 to 45 minutes, or until praline is set.

5. For bars, cut the brownies into 6 rows by 4 rows. Wipe knife off between cutting rows to keep brownies looking neater, if you like.
