Delicious Turtle Brownies


Happy day to you, my friends!
Today I have a delicious and decedent brownie recipe to share with you
so if you're a chocolate lover, caramel lover, or pecan lover
well, this treat is for you.


There is nothing better than a friend,
unless it is a friend with chocolate.
- Charles Dickens -




Ingredients:

1 box of chocolate brownie mix
chocolate frosting
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1/4 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
3/4 cup caramel sauce

Prepare and bake the brownies according to the directions on the package.
 Let pan cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes 
then poke holes all over with the back of a wooden spoon. 
Pour 1/2 cup caramel over brownies 
and spread into holes with a spatula. 
Refrigerate brownies for one hour or freeze for 30 minutes to let the caramel set. 

Once the caramel has set,
frost the brownies with the chocolate frosting
{use however much you like}.

Sprinkle the brownies with 1/2 cup chopped pecans,
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips, 
and drizzle with 1/4 cup caramel sauce.

Serve immediately
or refrigerate to allow the frosting to set
to make cutting easier.

Enjoy!




If you can't remember my name,
just say "chocolate". . .
I'll turn around.

Dear Diamond,

We all know who is really 
a girl's best friend. . .

Yours Truly,
Chocolate Cake




Enjoy the remainder of your week,
sweet friends.
And may this month of May 
be extra beautiful!

Love and hugs!


I shall eat chocolate,
drink coffee,
and sing happy songs.

You can find the original recipe for these turtle brownies
by clicking here.
The original recipe is made completely from scratch.
When I made these brownies I did not have a lot of time
so I used boxed brownies and ready made frosting.
The brownies were amazing 
and tasted just as good as those made from scratch.

And finally,
some recent pictures of the kittens who are now 5 1/2 weeks old.




Stripester whom I have been calling "Willow"
since we now know for sure that she is a girl.




Sweet and lovely little Melly.




And Chubs. . . such a handsome fellow!

Stephanie, there is nothing better than chocolate, except maybe chocolate served on a pretty red rose plate like this one hehehe. I was in awe when I saw these pictures because your chocolate turtle brownies look so incredible and moist. It's as if I could taste a bite of them through the screen. Oh, how delicious they look. And your little kittens are growing and soooo cute.

Let us eat chocolate, drink coffee, and sing happy songs together, shall we? Wishing you the happiest May days, Stephanie. This is wonderful post today, my friend.

Ooh my oh my, do those brownies ever look good, my friend!! You know what? I love that you used a mix, and a brownie mix IS great! I had to smile and chuckle at each of your quotes that you shared about chocolate...so cute! Thank for sharing the easy recipe (don't we love easy?), and for those adorable kittie pics. It looks like they're posing! Love to you. ❤️
P. S. The plate that the brownie is on is soooo pretty. You know how I'm smitten with pretty dishes!

Margie said...

I've never met a chocolate dessert that I didn't like! Your turtle brownies look scrumptious. YUM!!! I really liked that you used a brownie mix and ready-made frosting. The recipe looks easy enough that even I can follow it!

Kerin said...

Those brownies look delish! Thanks for taking time to share the recipe with us.

Such adorable fur babies! I hope mommy got fixed so there will be no more. They can get pregnant right away, even while nursing! Mmmm, I am salivating over the recipe!

AnnMarie aka Vintage Junkie aka NaNa said...

I agree there is nothing better than chocolate, except chocolate and caramel and nuts!! Turtle anything always speaks to me so these will be made soon. I like the idea of using boxed brownies since I am in love with the dark chocolate fudge version out there! Your kitties are too cute...I just want to eat them up along with the brownies!

Kris said...

Oh, yum, those brownies look wayyyyy too good!! I will have to give that recipe a try!! Thanks so much for sharing it, Stephanie!! And the kitties are just so dang cute!!

Chocolate calls my name all the time, and combined with caramel, it's irresistible. A very yummy looking recipe.
I hope you are doing well.

Oh my goodness that sounds fantastic but I am in need of losing weight so I am not even going to tempt myself by writing that recipe down.
Those kittens are just precious, I would have such a hard time giving them away that's for sure, so sweet!

Vicky Hunt said...

Chocolate and kittens...does it get any better? LOL! They look absolutely divine! I use box mixes and the one I use is always so yummy and such a time saver when I'm in a rush! I love the dish you used for your brownie too. It is gorgeous! The kittens are so precious. I would love to hold them and get some snuggles. I know you are enjoying them. Hope you are doing well my friend. Have a delightful weekend.

Hugs, Vicky

Hi Stephanie!
Dear friend what a joy to visit you today!
Ohh how your brownie recipe is making my mouth water- it looks so delicious and they are so gooey and fudgy looking. Mmmm. & I agree with Charles Dickens ;) That quote made me smile!
I wish I had been on more often recently to see more of the kittens and their story and will have to go catch up on your posts... But oh my gracious, how precious they are. Our Lord's sweet, sweet creation and love is seen so much through their tiny, little faces. I can imagine how much you all are enjoying them, especially your little boy, I'm sure :)

Also, dear friend may I just say that your Saved By Grace Alone post previous to this was a true blessing to my heart and mind and such a beautiful reflection of our Savior.

And I also just read at the top of your blog you are feeling under the weather- I'm so sorry to hear it and am thinking of you and praying for you that you will feel so much better very, very soon.

Love and many hugs!!
Jazzmin
