Sinfully divine fudgy Turtle Brownies infused with a layer of caramel gooeyness and then topped with lots of chopped pecans, caramel and chocolate chunks. Doesn't get much better than this!
Hope you all had an awesome Turkey day!
I had a super, awesome time with the Lange family this Thanksgiving, which would be my husband's dad's side. Wonderful, wonderful people! They are very special to me and I'm so proud to be a part of the family. We had great delicious food and lots of laughs!
Curious....do you still have your fat pants on?
*Hint* Keep them on!! Tis the season, right?
Plus....We got Turtle Caramel Truffle Brownies in the house!
WARNING!!! These gooey, fudgy Turtle Truffle Brownies are ultra yummy and drool-worthy, so you see where I'm going with the fat pants. Or I can just tell you no calories and we'll all be in denial. 🙂
These purely sinful decadent brownies look and taste like an OMG moment.... Chopped pecans, chunks of luscious Lindt chocolate and caramel on top of fudgy brownies. Oh, and these brownies are stuffed with gooey caramel too. It's not just on the top!
Ohh hello Hollywood! These definitely are show-stopper worthy! Everybody knows that! Duhhhhhh!!!
If you're old enough, remember back in the 90's, when everyone used the phrase 'Duh'? I don't even want to think how many times I have said it and still do, when I'm feeling a little nutty. LOL...My go-to favorite word is and probably always will be 'Whatever'. Of course, there has to be an eye-roll to make it picture perfect when 'Whatever' is spoken, ya know?
I used to have a black t-shirt that had white font lettering that spelled out 'Whatever'. I was so proud of that shirt because I knew everything at that age, ya know, being a teenager and all. I don't know 'whatever' happened to it to my 'whatever' shirt. Sad face.
I'm positive though, one of my ex boyfriend's hid it, burned it or gave it to Good-Will, probably wishing secretly, that if they got rid of the evidence, that I would miraculously quit saying 'whatever'.
Unfortunately, that strategy did not work. ‘Whatever' can translate into so many meanings, you know? But, since I'm rambling on here, I probably should get back to telling you about these awesome brownies!
Is there somewhere you need to show up at that you want to impress? These do just that! I promise you! You won't hear 'whatever', especially out of me and that would be a guarantee! 🙂

- Make brownies as directed on boxed package OR make Fudgy Brownie Recipe:
- Combine butter, sugar, cocoa powder and salt in a large microwaveable glass bowl, and microwave for 15-20 seconds until butter is melted. Mix together with wooden spoon until butter is melted and mixture is combined.
- After mixture has cooled slightly, add vanilla and mix well.
- Add eggs, one at a time, and beat in until well mixed.
- In a separate bowl combine flour and baking powder, and stir to combine.
- Add flour mixture to batter, and mix together vigorously stirring about 40 strokes until very well combined.

- Add reserve brownie mix to the top of the brownies. (Tip: If brownies are still warm, they will spread easier over the caramel, so if they aren't, place them in microwave for 15 seconds or so. Get the brownies back in the oven.
- Bake 20 more minutes and take out of oven and place on baking rack. Timing may vary if you use a boxed version, use their timing.
- Add chopped pecans and chopped chocolate to the top of the brownies.
