These Turtle Brownies are from Mary Engelbreit’s Cookies Cookbook: The Queen’s Best Recipes®, the same cookbook the Double Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe came from. Let me warn you: these brownies will give you a sugar rush!
Chocolate, caramel, and pecans are a perfect combination. And these brownies are surprisingly easy to make. However, the recipe says to do all the mixing by hand. I cheated and used a handheld mixer. I used to be a purist until I wound up with sore arms and poorly mixed dough. Now, the only mixing I do by hand is folding whipped cream or beaten egg whites into batter, and kneading bread gently!
As you know, I like almost all my baked goods frozen—or at least chilled. These brownies are no exception.
