Turtle Brownies

Anything with nuts and caramel I’m pretty much in love with, and these Turtle Brownies are no exception. The richness of the chocolate, gooey-ness of the caramel, crunchiness of the nuts, and the fudginess of the brownie  is the most delicious combination.  Serving them warm out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream will knock your socks off! I have made these many many times, and each time they’re reached with rave reviews.  Best of all, they’re super easy to make–in the oven in about 10 minutes!

These are perfect for home, to give as gifts, or to take to parties and BBQ’s. They’re one of our favorite desserts, and we often choose them for our Sunday Night Treat.  If you have nut allergies at your house, you can definitely leave out the nuts, and they’ll still be amazing!

Ingredients
  • German Chocolate cake mix
  • 1/3 c. evaporated milk
  • 3/4 c. butter, melted
  • 1 c. chopped nuts
  • Caramel Layer
  • 14 oz. caramels (Kraft caramels or similar)
  • 1/3 c. evaporated milk
  • Topping
  • 6 oz. chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Mix together the German Chocolate cake mix, 1/3 c. evaporated milk, 3/4 c. melted butter and 1 c. chopped nuts. Spoon half of the mixture into a greased 9×13 baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 6 minutes. Cool slightly.
  2. Melt the 14 oz. caramels (Kraft caramels or similar) and 1/3 c. evaporated milk and spread over top of brownies:
  3. Sprinkle 6 oz. chocolate chips on top of caramel mixture, then drop remaining brownie mixture in walnut-sized balls close together over the brownies. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes.
  4. *I’ve substituted a Ghirardelli brownie mix for the cake mix, and it makes a fudgier brownie. I usually reduce the butter a little bit when I do that.
