Praline Pecan Brownies

On the Menu Today~
Praline Pecan Brownies

Sometimes all you need is a boxed brownie mix to make your day special~
Ghirardelli is my favorite boxed brownie mix and
adding some Praline Pecan Liqueur and Pecans....
Pure Heaven!

A few months back,
I saw a recipe on Ms.enPlace.
The recipe called for Praline Pecan Liqueur.
The name, Praline Pecan Liqueur,
immediately caught my attention!
I had never heard of Praline Pecan Liqueur before but
it certainly sounded delicious.
I knew I was going to have to look into this a little further:)

Here in Northern WI,
I wasn't able to find Praline Pecan Liqueur.
While visiting my daughter in Athens GA,
we stopped at 5 Points Bottle Shop.
We needed to pick up a bottle of dark beer
for the beer bread we were going to make.
I looked around and sure enough,
there it was,
sitting on the shelf!

Knowing I had to bring it home on the airplane,
I only bought one bottle.
big mistake on my part!
I originally wanted to try pecan praline liqueur in a recipe for
Overnight French Toast but
today, I decided to add a shot to a boxed brownie mix.

On the back of the bottle of Praline Pecan Liqueur it says;
 "Close your eyes and listen for the tuneful cry of the praline lady,"
"Praw-LEENS, frais praw-LEENS!"
