There isn’t a whole lot to say here. I think that we can all agree that “turtle” anything is great. Slap some salted caramel, chocolate chips, crunchy pecans, and flaky sea salt on a brownie and you have a very delicious, very messy treat.

You’ll need:

  • 1 batch Simple Fudge Brownies
  • 2 – 13 oz bags caramels, unwrapped
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup pecans, roughly chopped
  • sea salt (I cannot profess my love for Maldon sea salt strongly enough)

Make 1 batch of Simple Fudge Brownies. Or whatever brownie recipe you prefer. Just make sure that it’s in a 13×9-inch pan, or else you’ll need to cut down on the amount of caramel that you make.

While the brownies cool a bit, add the caramels and heavy cream to a medium, heavy-bottomed pot. Stir pretty continuously until the caramel is melted and smooth.

Pour the hot caramel over the brownies, smoothing into an even layer. Top with mini chocolate chips, chopped pecans, and sea salt.

Wait as long as you can manage for the caramel to cool and set up a bit. Cut into bars and eat!

Want more salted caramel and caramel-y applications? Salted Caramel Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies, Salted Dark Chocolate Dulce de Leche Blondies, and Salted Caramel Apple Pie Bars ought to do the trick!
