Turtle Brownies

I had a bit of a problem...we had more than half of a container of caramel apple dip sitting in our fridge leftover from October.  I couldn't throw out perfectly good caramel.  (It didn't expire until April.)


So I found this recipe for turtle brownies and modified it a bit.

The result was a-mazing!!!  I shared these with friends at Advent by Candlelight last week and they all raved that they were delicious! 


Here's my modified recipe:

1 box of brownie mix
Leftover caramel dip (I used about half a 16 oz. container)
1 1/3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup chopped pecans

Make brownie batter per directions on box.  Spread half of the batter in a greased 8x11 inch pan.  Bake for 18 minutes at 350 degrees.

Heat caramel in 15 second increments so it is a pourable consistency.  Pour on top of baked brownies.  Sprinkle 2/3 cup of the chocolate chips and 1/3 cup of the pecans.  Spread remaining brownie batter on top of the chocolate chips and pecans.  Sprinkle remaining 2/3 cup chocolate chips and 1/3 cup of pecans on top.

Bake 35 minutes at 350.  Cool 1 hour at room temperature.  Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour before cutting and serving and devouring.   

Enjoy!
