Brownie:

  • 1-1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 oz milk chocolate, chopped
  • 6 tbsp melted butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup cream

Preparation

For the Pecan-Caramel Sauce: Place pecans in 9" inch cast iron pan and toast over medium-high heat on stove-top. Toast pecans for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 1/4 cup butter and 1/2 cup brown sugar to the pecans. Stir until butter and brown sugar are melted and combined.

Remove from heat and carefully add 1/2 cup heavy cream. Return to the heat and stir until the cream is completely combined. Remove from heat and set aside.

For the Brownies: In a large bowl, combine the 1-1/3 cups brown sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the melted butter, eggs, cream, and milk. Mix well. Fold in the chopped milk chocolate. Pour batter over the caramel pecan mixture.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 325 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Put the brownies into the Traeger and cook for 35 to 40 minutes or until the center comes out clean when checked with a toothpick. Remove from grill and let cool for at least 10 minutes.

Serve warm with ice cream. Enjoy!
