Caramel & Pecan {Turtle} Brownies

Beware the Ides of March!! Or rather, beware your waistline because of these brownies!

Caramel & Pecan {Turtle} Brownies

I’m a huge fan of turtles. No, not the animal {though those can be pretty adorable}. I’m talking turtles of the caramel, pecan, and chocolate variety. And since my birthday was this past Wednesday, I took advantage of the excuse and made the most amazing, decadent brownies. Seriously people. These rock my socks off. They may just be the best brownies I’ve ever had… and trust me, I’m a professional brownie taster {Ok, not really. But if such a job exists… can I have an application immediately?!}. That’s right people… Caramel & Pecan {Turtle} Brownies!!!

I have a little brownie cutting tip for all of you! You know when you cut brownies and the delicious soft center sticks to your knife and makes a jagged-y cut? Instead, cut your brownies with a plastic disposable knife and you will get perfect clean cut! You’re welcome!

Caramel & Pecan {Turtle} Brownies

I’m madly in love with these amazing brownies. Seriously. I would marry them if I could {sorry honey}. They are awesome. I especially love them topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. You really can’t go wrong with these! I especially love the amazing little pecan crunch inside and on top of each brownie! Oh man. I must resist the call of the caramel & pecan {turtle} brownies! Must. stop. drooling.

Do you love turtles? The animal or the caramel variety?? Also… do you pronounce pecan as pee-can or as pi-con?? I never know what is right!!
