Baking My Way: Chocolate Syrup Pecan Brownies

This is a yummy brownie. Not my favorite of all time but still a really good one! I give it a 4 out of 5, only because I like a fudgier brownie. It's easy to make and it's nice because you can use your own homemade chocolate sauce and make it nice and rich if you want. Oh and the icing; so good!!

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup margarine or butter, softened
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 eggs
1 (16-oz.) can chocolate-flavored syrup
1 1/4 cups All Purpose or Unbleached Flour
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

1/4 cup margarine or butter
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 to 3 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 13x9-inch pan. In large bowl, beat sugar and 1/2 cup margarine until light and fluffy. Add 1 tablespoon vanilla, eggs and chocolate syrup; blend well. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. Add flour; mix well. Stir in 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Spread in greasedpan.

Bake at 350°F. for 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely.

Melt 1/4 cup margarine in medium saucepan over medium heat. Blend in cocoa; heat until mixture just comes to a boil, stirring constantly. Cool slightly. Stir in powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and enough milk for desired spreading consistency; blend until smooth. Stir in 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Spread carefully over cooled brownies. Cool completely; cut into bars.
