Turtle Brownies

Printable Recipe

1 German Chocolate cake mix
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup chopped pecans
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 package unwrapped caramels (about 40)
1 package chocolate chips (milk is richer than semi-sweet, but both are good)

Blend cake mix, butter and 1/3 cup evaporated milk with 1/2 cup pecans. Spread 1/2 of the mixture in a greased 9 x 13 pan, and bake at 350° for about 6-8 minutes. Remove from oven.

Melt caramels and 1/3 cup evaporated milk together. Let cool slightly. Spread over baked cake mixture. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the caramel mixture. Drop the remaining cake mixture by spoonfuls over the caramel/chocolate mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining nuts. Bake at 350° for about 18 minutes.

A little extra milk in the caramels makes them really gooey, less milk makes the caramel firm up more.

Holly's Note:
My husband calls these "cardiac brownies" and they are divine. Especially with some vanilla ice cream...
