A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Chocolate Caramel Brownies are an easy version of Turtle Brownies or Turtle Cookies.

They are named after the original turtle candies, 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.

Extra tip: save time. Replace the brownie layer ingredients with a brownie mix!

Prep time: 15 minutes (10 minutes if you use a brownie mix!)
Bake time: 30 minutes, divided
Makes 24-36 bars
