Using a box brownie mix, some extras, and pecan butterscotch easily made in a cooking blender, you have yourself a seriously delicious treat. Don’t forget the ice cream!


  •  Oil for spritzing
  • ½ cup (125 mL) evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp (0.5 mL) salt
  • ⅓ cup (75 mL) packed brown sugar
  • 8 oz. (250 g) pecan halves (2 cups/ 500 mL)
  • 1 pkg (18.3 oz./520 g) fudge brownie mix, plus the ingredients to make brownies
    Pecan Butterscotch
  • ⅔ cup (150 mL) packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup (125 mL) evaporated milk
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter
  • ⅛ tsp (0.5 mL) salt
  •  Optional: Ice cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (160°C). Spritz the Brownie Pan with oil. Add the evaporated milk, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, brown sugar, and pecans, in the order listed, to the Deluxe Cooking Blender. Blend on GRIND, tampering as needed.

  2. Mix the brownie ingredients in a large bowl according to the package directions. Fold the pecan paste into the brownie batter (don’t clean your blender pitcher, yet—the extra pecan paste will flavor the butterscotch in step 4). Divide the batter evenly in the brownie pan.

  3. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 22–25 minutes.

  4. For the butterscotch, cook the brown sugar, evaporated milk, butter, and salt on SAUCE. When prompted to “Add”, press the wheel to continue cooking.

  5. Let the brownies cool slightly before serving with the butterscotch. Add a scoop of ice cream, if you like.

Cook's Tips:

Before washing your blender after making pecan butter, use the sauce setting to make a rich pecan flavored butterscotch sauce.

You might just want to make a double batch of this butterscotch sauce. It’s great on its own, even without the extra pecan flavor. Enjoy it as a topping for ice cream, apple pie, or any of your favorite desserts.
