I bake a lot of brownies. Seriously, a lot. There are plenty here on BoB, but I also bake plenty that you don’t see. I’m not holding out on you, I promise. Brownies are just my go-to when I need/want/crave a homemade chocolate dessert.
For the purposes of sharing brownies on BoB, however, I am constantly thinking of and searching for new twists on the classic brownie. While these brownies may not differ much in taste and texture from traditional brownies, the presentation certainly does.
Upside-Down Pecan Brownie Tarts | Bake or Break
It all starts with mini tart pans. I realize that not everyone is as obsessed with mini desserts as I am, so feel free to use a 9-inch tart pan. Either way, plenty of toasted pecans are scattered in the bottom of the pans. Then, a rich brownie batter is poured on top of that. A little baking time, a little cooling time, and then it’s time to flip these beauties over.
The end result is a dressed up brownie dessert that’s so adorable I could barely stand it when I flipped them over. These are even more delicious with a scoop of ice cream, but I couldn’t bear to cover up all those toasted pecans for the photos.
The size of these tarts makes them perfect for sharing. Grab a couple of forks and a friend, and dig in!
