I made these brownies with the help of my two young children. Brownies seem to be their favourite thing to bake, I believe it’s because of all the chocolate! I recently was able to bring them to a small family get together, one of the first since Covid. These brownies were a huge hit! Making turtle brownies is definitely a way to upgrade plain brownies into a decadent dessert!

How to Make These Turtle Brownies

Preheat oven to 350F and line a 8×8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper. You want to make sure the parchment overs hangs a little, this allows you to easily remove the brownies from the pan.

Brownie Batter

Chop and melt the bakers chocolate in the microwave. Do this by microwaving in 20 second increments and stirring in between.

Chop caramel squares into small pieces, I find its easiest to cut them with kitchen scissors.Add caramel pieces, chocolate chips, and pecans into a medium sized bowl. Mix together and then set bowl aside.

In a large mixing bowl combine melted butter and sugar and whisk by hand until smooth. Add in the eggs and vanilla and vigorously mix for a few minutes. Mixing the eggs well creates that shiny crackle top on the brownies.

Pour in the melted chocolate and whisk until mixture is well combined. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Using a rubber spatula mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined. Do not over mix.

Bake for 28-30 minutes or until edges are stiff and middle is set. Allow brownies to fully cool to room temperature before adding the toppings and slicing.

Caramel Sauce

In a medium sized microwave bowl add the caramel squares and heavy cream. Microwave in 20 second increments, stirring in between, until melted and combined.

Drizzle the caramel on top of the cooled brownies. Then top with chocolate chips and pecans. I then like to drizzle a little more caramel sauce on top.

Tips for Making Perfect Turtle Brownies

  • Use room temperature eggs. They break down easier and allow them to blend better into the batter.
  • If you forgot to take your eggs out of the fridge, no worries, just run them under warm water for a few minutes.
  • Once eggs are added to the mixture, whisk for a couple of minutes. This breaks down the eggs, adds air, and gives the brownies that perfect crinkle top.
  • Be sure to mix everything by hand.
  • It’s better to be under baked than over baked with brownies.
