Amazing Thick and Fudgey Turtle Brownies layered with caramel sauce, pecans and chocolate chips. A super decadent dessert!
I didn’t think brownies could get any better until I drizzled them with caramel sauce and topped them with chopped pecans and chocolate chips.
These brownies are AMAZING! Super rich, fudgey and chocolatey. Firm around the edges and soft and chewy on the outside.
This recipe is super easy and doesn’t require a mixer. The hardest part is waiting for the brownies to cool!
I used as little flour as possible to get a fudgey, chewy brownie. More flour = a cakey brownie. Less flour = a chewier and fudgey brownie. Brown sugar was added for extra sweetness and to give the brownie extra moisture.
You can either make your own caramel sauce or use caramel candies like I did. Either will work and both will be amazing!
