Delicious brownies with pecans and caramel sauce - Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8 inch square pan with a cooking spray. For this recipe I used Chinet 8x8 Square Pan. In a medium bowl combine sifted flour, cocoa powder, sugar, salt and baking powder. Add lightly beaten eggs and water, mix until smooth. In a small sauce pan melt the butter, add chocolate chips and vanilla extract. Stir constantly just until chocolate is melted. Pour chocolate mixture into the batter, add chopped pecans and mix well. Scrape batter into prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Do not overcook. Cool in pan on a wire rack. To make the syrup, in a heavy saucepan, stir together the sugar, light corn syrup, and water. Heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar dissolves and the syrup is bubbling. Lower the heat to medium-low and let the syrup cook undisturbed fro 15-20 minutes. Until it becomes dark amber. Then remove from the heat, add heavy cream and salt. Stir with a wooden spoon until smooth. Return to the heat and add butter, stir. Bring to a boil one more time and immediately remover from the heat. Let to cool for a few minutes and add the vanilla extract. Serve warm brownies drizzled with a cooled caramel syrup.
