This recipe was inspired by a favorite store-bought version that was discontinued years ago. I really loved it and was very disappointed to see that I could no longer find it on the store shelves. So, I went to the kitchen and came up with this simple “clone” version of it. The bad thing is, that I can only find the caramel wrappers in the autumn, so, I just bake these Turtle Brownies in the autumn. It is something to look forward to though. My love for cooking, baking, and collecting recipes/cookbooks, etc. keeps me going in the kitchen. New Recipe ideas are fun for me because I feel like a detective trying different things to figure out the right combination. It is a challenge yet also a lot of fun. My children as youngsters also loved to be in the kitchen helping me cook and bake. They have seen some of our mistakes and also some wonderful successes gained from not giving up. The kitchen is the “heartbeat” of our home (yours too) and many wonderful memories (and food) are being “made” while we work together in there. Enjoy your baking memories! Happy Baking these delightful brownies! See my other recipe articles in Bukisa!
What You’ll Need:
- 1 package of your favorite Brownie Mix (9×13” pan size)
- 6 Caramel Wrapper Circles (found in the autumn season by the apples in the produce dept.)
- 6 oz. package Pecan Pieces
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13” Pan with shortening like the brownie package says.
Make the brownie batter according to package directions. Pour half of the batter in the pan. Spread out with the back of a wooden spoon. Remove the waxed paper from the caramel wrapper circles.
Top the batter with the caramel wrapper circles. (You may Have to cut them a little to fit better with kitchen shears.)
Pour the rest of the brownie batter over them. Sprinkle the pecans on top.
Bake according to time stated on Brownie package directions. Make sure brownies feel firm in the center to the touch. A toothpick inserted should not have unbaked batter on it. Cool for 15-20 minutes since hotCaramel can burn. Serve warm.
