10 tablespoons (1 stick plus 2 tablespoons) unsalted butter

8 ounces white chocolate pieces

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup pecan pieces

6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Using 2 tablespoons of the butter, grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
  2. In a metal bowl set over a pot of simmering water, melt the remaining stick of butter with the white chocolate.
  3. In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs and sugar. Add the flour, vanilla, and salt and mix well. Fold in the pecans and the melted white chocolate.
  4. Spread the brownie mixture in the buttered pan and sprinkle the chopped semisweet chocolate over the top. Bake until firm, for about 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a rack before cutting into squares.
