Candied Pecans:
Raspberry Sauce:


Candied Pecans

In dry saucepan, toast pecans over medium heat, stir­ring often, until nuts are fragrant and beginning to brown, about 3 minutes. Remove pan from heat. Add maple syrup and stir to coat nuts. Return pan to heat; cook over medium-low heat, stirring often, until maple syrup liquid has evaporated and the sugars have crystallized, about
8 minutes. Mix in fleur de sel. Spread candied pecans evenly on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Let cool completely and separate nuts. (Make-ahead: Can be stored in airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.)

Raspberry Sauce

Meanwhile, in blender, purée raspberries, sugar and lemon juice until smooth (if necessary, add water, 1 tsp at a time, to obtain desired consistency). Strain through fine sieve placed over bowl. (Make-ahead: Can be stored in airtight container and refrigerated for up to 5 days.) 

Divide half of the ice cream, Raspberry Sauce, diced brownies, fresh raspberries and Candied Pecans among six 1-cup dessert cups. Repeat layers with remaining ingredients. Top with whipped cream, if using. Sprinkle with any remaining Candied Pecan crumbs, if desired.
