These are just the best combination of caramel, pecans and chocolate. My kids just loved them and they were gone quickly. Will definitely be making these again.

These are just great. If you like chocolate and pecans, you will love these brownies. The grand kids sure liked them. And you could substitute different nuts, even non sugar.

I absolutely thought that this was a great recipe. I used to buy my turtles hide them and eat them now I can share them with the my family. My father in law loves turtles so now when they come to visit for Christmas I will let him sample these bad boys I am sure he will love them almost as much as me. Thanks for the recipe!
