"These brownies have pecans and caramel, much like turtle candies." — Joseph

unsweetened cocoa powder
individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
I changed this recipe quite a bit. I didn't have pecans so I used walnuts.
After reading the reviews, I decided not to drizzle the caramel over the brownies after they were baked instead I swirled it in with a knife along w/ the nuts before baking.They turned out wonderfully.
This was only OK. I prepared the caramels exactly as instructed and they hardened too much on the top of the brownies. They were difficult to cut and the caramel was hard to chew. The brownies were OK but I wouldn't make them again.
I love this recipe because turtles are my favorite candy. I also found the caramels hardened too much on top, so I added butter continuously while melting the caramel until it remained soft on my stir spoon after cooling. That fixed the problem and these brownies never stay in the house more than one day.
These are good, but just a touch too dry for my families taste. Ice cream over it solves that however. ;) Also, just a tip for people who are new to cooking, cream the sugar and butter first before adding the cocoa and such. Otherwise you just work too hard getting the butter to fully blend.
This brownies came out deliciously! I read the other reviews mentioning dryness and combated that by mixing 3/4 c cocoa powder with a few tablespoons of butter and about 1/4 c boiling water. I added this mixture to the batter after the vanilla and before the flour. I also used walnuts instead of pecans and caramel icecream topping instead of caramel candy. I drizzled it over the brownies half way through baking and they came out beautifully.
Yummmy! Followed recipe for brownies but used caramel icecream topping instead of the caramel candy...turned out great!
I would have to say this is a good recipe but the other reviews are right, a little too dry. I also listened to one of the other reviews who said to add the caramel and nuts before cooking and that was a great idea, the only problem was I added the nuts to the caramel then tried to pour it in the brownie and it came out in clumps and I had to brake it up.If you add the caramel before you cook it be sure to add it seperate from the nuts so it doesnt become one big clump :-)
Straightforward, yet glamorous looking brownies. Very tasty.
