  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • ¼ cup bits-o-brickle (English toffee bits)


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray a 12 cup muffin pan plus 4 cups of additional pan with baking spray. Alternately, line with cupcake liners lightly spritzed with cooking spray. Set aside.
