Preheat oven to 425°F.

Stir together butter and next 2 ingredients; add to brown sugar mixture, and stir just until moistened. Coat 2 (12 cup) miniature muffin pans well with cooking spray. Place 1 teaspoon finely chopped pecans in each muffin cup; spoon batter over pecans, filling almost to top. Place muffin pans on an aluminum foil-lined jelly-roll pan.
