Make the glazed pecans.:
  • In a small bowl, toss together the pecans, maple sugar, maple syrup, salt and cayenne. Stir to make sure all the nuts are well coated. Spread out on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for about 10-12 minutes until bubbling and caramelized. Cool.

Make the brownies.:
  • Butter and flour a 9-inch square brownie pan. Line the pan with parchment so that there is an overhang on two sides. (this makes lifting the brownies out of the pan much easier.)

  • In a large saucepan over low heat, add the butter and unsweetened chocolate and stir with a wooden spoon until completely melted. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add both of the sugars, stirring well until incorporated.

  • With the wooden spoon, beat in the eggs, one at a time, stirring after each addition until mixture is well blended. Stir in the salt.

  • Fold in the yogurt and then the flour and stir until well incorporated. Chop 1/2 cup of the pecans and fold into the batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Arrange the remaining 1/2 cup pecans decoratively on top of the brownies.

  • Bake for approximately 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
