Chocolate Caramel Brownies are an ideal way to celebrate “Brownies at Brunch” Month in August. They are a rich, luscious concoction that will give you a sugar lift midmorning … and make you very popular with your co-workers.

The cookies are a version of Turtle Brownies or Turtle Cookies, so named after the original candy which featured a whole pecan, drizzled with caramel and then covered with light chocolate. The creased pecan back resembled a turtle shell, its grooves accented by the caramel and chocolate.

The brownies are layered with chocolate on the bottom, followed by pecans and caramel, and topped with one more coating of chocolate for good measure.
