Praline Pecan Brownies with Raisins

Marsha Gardner


My dad had several wives other than my mother that were all great cooks. Barbara made these brownies for us when we went to visit them in Rhode Island one summer. My son loved the raisins in them. I would have never thought to add raisins to a brownie mix.

I don't often use a pre-packaged mix, but the only way these taste right is if I use a Duncan Hines Brownie Mix.

How to Make Praline Pecan Brownies with Raisins


  • 1Preheat oven to 350-degrees.

    Prepare the brownie mix according to the package directions adding lightly floured raisins at the end of mixing. (flouring keeps them from sinking)

    Pour batter into a greased 9x13-inch pan.
  • 2Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Add the pecans and sugar and cook, over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the sugar dissolves.

    Drizzle the caramel mixture over brownie batter and bake until a toothpick can be inserted and withdrawn cleanly, 25 to 30 minutes.
