Turtle Brownies

Turtle Brownies – rich and fudgy brownies loaded with pecans and topped with caramel, chocolate, and more pecans. An easy and decadent treat.

Brownies are probably my all time favorite dessert. There is just something about them that I can’t resists. And for me the fudgier the butter! I grew up making these Easy Homemade Brownies and have that recipe memorized since I was probably 5 years old.

Today I am taking Turtle Candy and mixing it with brownies for one epic treat!

Turtles are a candy that is made with gooey caramel and pecans that are covered in chocolate. So the pairing is perfect for chocolate brownies! Or you can check out this Turtle Cheesecake for another decadent dessert. Chocolate and caramel is just a great combination any way you make it.

How To Make Turtle Brownies

  1. In a bowl mix together vegetable oil and melted chocolate until well blended and smooth. Beat in eggs and sugar until everything is well incorporated. Add flour and salt and mix until just combined.
  2. Add caramel bits and chopped pecans and fold until everything is evenly distributed. Pour into an 8 inch baking dish and bake for 20-25 minutes until a tester comes out mainly clean.
  3. While the brownies cool melt together caramel bits and heavy cream until smooth. Drizzle caramel over the brownies and sprinkle with pecans and chocolate chips.
  4. Let the brownies cool completely and the caramel to set up. Slice to serve.

Recipe Tips

  • When making brownies you want to be careful not to overbake them. Once you take brownies out of the oven they continue to cook in the hot pan, so you want a tester to still have some crumbs on it. You don’t want it to be full of batter, but some crumbs are good.
  • If you don’t have pecans, walnuts are a good substitute.
  • If you really want a shortcut, you can use a box of your favorite brownie mix. Or if you have any Homemade Brownie Mix in your pantry, this is a great use for it as well.

These brownies do not need to be stored any differently than your regular brownies. You can just cover them and let them sit at room temperature for up to about 4 days.

You can store them in the fridge and they will last for a couple more days. They are just best served at room temperature, so take them out a little bit before you want to serve them.
