Despite the worthy competition last Saturday at Harlem Harvest’s bake-off, we took home first place with our decadent chocolate pecan brownie. Chocolate lovers will delight at this unique brownie, which is richly dense with chocolate and packed with pecans. Once you try our chocolate pecan brownie, nothing else will compare. We even have the first place ribbon to prove it!
1 pound whole eggs
12 ounces melted semi-sweet chocolate
1 pound melted butter

Let cool, cut into 24 squares, and enjoy!
