Punkin' brownies (low carb, natch!)

Nothing is better, really, than pumpkin, dark chocolate, and pecans..... well, almost nothing! The hubster reports that this is super moist, with lots of layers of flavor. Pretty high praise from my engineer honey.

3/4 stick of butter, melted
2/3 cup pumpkin puree
4 eggs
2 cups splenda
1 cup Carbquick
2tsp vanilla extract
1 cup dark chocolate morsels, divided
3/4 cup pecan pieces

Preheat oven to 350, and grease a 9x9 pan, set aside. In a mixing bowl, combine butter, pumpkin, and eggs, beat lightly. Add splenda, carbquick, and beat again. Stir in the vanilla, then 3/4 cup of chocolate, and the pecans. Pour into pan, and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the top springs back when touched. Remove from oven and scatter remaining chocolate over the top. Once they have softened, use a butter knife to gently spread over the top of the brownies. Allow to cool, then slice and enjoy.
