It is my husband’s birthday month! Because of this, I decided to share his favorite snack with you.
My husband’s mother always made Neiman Marcus Brownies for his birthday. When she passed away, I had the honor of carrying on that tradition.
You can make these brownies for almost any occasion. I have even started making these as a snack for our family’s Christmas parties.
Neiman Marcus brownies are super easy to make and do not require very many ingredients. BUT, they do require A LOT of butter and confectioners sugar, so if you plan on making these, stock up! Also, these brownies are not made with brownie mix, you will actually be using cake mix!
To make these delicious brownies, you will need:
A 9×13 cake pan
1 cup butter
1 Box of Butter Pecan cake mix
8 oz cream cheese (1 package) SOFTENED
3 ¾ cups confectioners sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Crusted pecans-as desired (I use chopped pecans)
-You will be making a crust and a filling-
To make the crust:
Mix 1 egg, ½ cup of melted butter, and dry cake mix. Pat your dough into the bottom of a greased cake pan.
To make the filling:
Mix 2 eggs, cream cheese, confectioners sugar, ½ cup butter, and vanilla. Pour over crust and sprinkle with pecans.
*If your cream cheese is not softened enough, you will get large blobs of cream cheese and may need to mix a little longer so that it pours smooth.
Bake at 350 for 55-60 minutes.
These brownies will start to burn QUICK so you will want to keep a close eye on them!
I used to use the toothpick trick on them when I first started making them. I would always wait to take them out of the oven until the toothpick came out completely clean, and always ended up baking them for too long and burning the crust.
If at all possible, I would recommend only leaving them in there for the suggested time. They are going to look like they are super gooey still, but I promise, that is how they should look!
I hope that you enjoy your Neiman Marcus Brownies and I would love to hear from you if you try this recipe!
