Turtle Brownies – rich and fudgy brownies loaded with pecans and topped with caramel, chocolate, and more pecans. An easy and decadent treat.
Homemade brownies just might be my all time favorite dessert. They can be loaded with candy, topped with chocolate frosting, or even just dusted with powdered sugar.
Brownies from scratch are so easy to make, if you give it a chance you will ditch the box mix forever! Seriously just a handful of ingredients, about the same amount of time, and you can have super fudgy and delicious brownies.
How to Make Brownies
- Butter vs vegetable oil - really either works, it depends on the recipe. I usually use oil, but have a couple recipes with butter. Butter can be a little more greasy if you use too much. And it gives it a slightly different flavor. But both work and taste great.
- Cocoa powder vs melted chocolate - again both work. You can even look at the back of your cocoa powder container to see what the substitution is. So if you don't have one, you can definitely substitute the other.
- Use a spatula - you do not need an electric mixer for brownies, just a bowl and a spatula.
- Pans - I like a metal baking pan for baking brownies. Glass works, but I think the texture is different. I don't get the same edges when I used glass.
The best brownie recipe is really subject to your own opinion. I have been using the same base brownies recipe since I was a little girl. But I am always trying new recipes when I see them!
