double chocolate pecan brownies #chocolateparty

Hello November! I cannot believe it is turkey month.  I better get on the Thanksgiving day recipes.  I could say this is the first.  After all when I think of pecans, I think of Thanksgiving. 

This month for the #chocolateparty post Roxana choose pecans as the special ingredient to pair with chocolate.  At first I was thinking cookies, but after perusing various recipes I decided against this idea. 

I always find chocolate cookies tricky.  We had guests coming and I wasn't sure I would be able to keep a close enough eye on the cookies.  Overbaked chocolate cookies are NO good!

To make my life easier I made brownies. To make my life really easy I used a box mix.  This doesn't happen often but I am not completely opposed either. The Ghirardelli is particularly good. 

These brownies came together in less than ten minutes and used one bowl.  The extra chocolate makes them extra good and fudgey.  The pecans add a depth and texture to the brownies making them feel extra special. I tend to go towards walnuts in brownies but after having these I might be a pecan convert.

After a long day of house improvement projects everyone was super happy to have a special treat with two one of these brownies.

If you want to join in on the fun here is how you participate:
1.) Blog about your chocolate treat. Your recipe must include the two ingredients we choose. It can be a simple no bake treat or a sophisticated layer cake, the complexity level of the recipe is totally up to you.
2.) Include a link back to the Chocolate party page.  Optionally, add the Chocolate Party logo in your blog post or on your sidebar.
3.) Your recipe must be published during the current month. Please do not link old recipes, they will be deleted.

4.) Add the linky code at the bottom of your post.
