A layer of caramel. A layer of chocolate. A layer of pecans. How can you go wrong with that?
A friend of mine gave me a recipe for Turtle Brownies probably 15 years ago. I’ve never made them. The other day I ran across the recipe, but didn’t have the right ingredients. No problem. I altered the recipe liberally and came up with Gooey Turtle Bars. Very yummy!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 3/4 cup melted butter
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1/2 cup pecans
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 jar caramel sauce
Mix the cake mix with butter and milk. Pour half the batter into a 9×13 pan. Spread it out with a spatula. Bake 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees.
Pull the cake out of the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top. Add the pecans. Pour the caramel over the top of all of it as evenly as you can. Add the rest of the batter. Spread it with a spatula to cover as much of the surface as possible. It might not be totally covered and that’s okay.
Bake it again for 20 minutes. Cool completely before cutting.
