  • 1 pouch 10.25 ounce size brownie mix for an 8x8 inch pan, plus ingredients called for on the pouch (or you can use your favorite recipe)
  • 1/3 cup pecans chopped
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 egg whites


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line an 8x8” pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • Mix brownies according to package directions. Spread in pan. Top with chocolate chips and pecans.
  • Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold in the brown sugar and spread evenly over the brownie layer.
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until the meringue is golden brown. If the top starts to brown too quickly, cover it with a layer of parchment paper. Let cool completely before cutting. (Chill in the refrigerator for quicker cooling.) Peel away the foil carefully before cutting. **Be sure to spray your knife with cooking spray before cutting. After each cut wipe away excess and spray the knife again.**
