Feature: Turtle Brownies Recipe – Easy Brownies in Layers

This Turtle Brownies recipe is a luscious bar cookie recipe and a simple variation of two popular confections: traditional brownies and turtle candy.

Turtle candy was christened in 1916 – almost 100 years ago – when a dipping worker noticed that a new chocolate-and-caramel-dipped pecan candy resembled the back of a turtle’s shell.

In this variation, caramel and pecans are sandwiched between two brownie layers and topped with one more coating of chocolate and pecans for good measure.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 45 minutes, divided
Makes about 16 brownies
