"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Ingredients:  
1 large box brownie mix (22 oz)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup + 3tbsp bourbon (more or less depending on your preference!)
1/2 cup butter + 3tbsp, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup chocolate chips

Directions:
Directions:
Make brownie mix according to package and add pecans. Spread in a 9x13 pan and bake. Cool. Pour 1/3 cup + bourbon over top. Cream 1/2 cup butter, powdered sugar and 3tbsp of bourbon together. Spread over brownies. Melt 3tbsp butter with chocolate chips and then drizzle over top. (May need to thin this mixture down as you do not want it to get too thick on top of the brownies or it will be difficult to cut). Cut into small squares.
*I actually freeze the brownies before cutting them as they seem to come out easier. I also store them in the freezer as they do not freeze completely and are much easier to eat this way.
