"These are so moist and so fantastic that you won't want to stop eating them! They are a brownie version of a confection called Turtles. These are just as good."

My Mom has been making these since I was a kid. Her recipe varies slightly - 1/2 c. of the milk with the carmels will make it smoother, she always used German Chocolate cake mix (the best), 3/4 c. of butter and only 1/3 c. of milk in the mix, and 1cup walnuts instead of pecans. Fantastic! I tried it with yellow cake mix and that was really good too.


While they contain some of the same ingredients, I wouldn't say they tasted anything like the candy. They taste pretty good. It is more like eating a piece of chocolate cake with caramel, choc chips and pecans in the middle. They are moist and delicious. However, if you're looking for a fudgey-type brownie, this wouldn't be it. This is definitely a cake-type brownie, but just follow the instructions and you will have a tasty treat. I toasted the pecans, chopped them finely and added them to the caramel/chip mixture. Thanks Jessi.


I started melting the caramels before I checked to see if I had chocolate cake mix. I didn't, so I substituted yellow cake mix. Yum! Next time I make it with yellow cake, I'll call it Turtle Surprise Bars. I'll add chopped pecans to the caramel/chocolate chip layer to create a hidden turtle layer in the middle. I also used fat-free evaporated milk (but I'm not sure that it lessened the guilt by much...).
