I love the holiday season -- decorating the house, sending out holiday cards, trimming the tree, gifting and baking. Baking is my favorite part of this time of year. My family joins in the baking process. Our goal is to choose recipes that are simple, pretty and of course, delicious.
I grew up with my mom baking Turtle Brownies for family and friends. It's a memory I cherish. This classic, favorite dessert is a version of the Turtles candy. You will love how easy this recipe is to make. Every bite offers chocolate with gooey caramel and crunchy pecans.
For this recipe, I used the Foodstirs brownie mix, added caramel, chocolate chips and nuts. For kiddos with a nut allergy, don't fret! I promise these brownies will taste just as delicious minus the nuts. I also suggest experimenting with the ingredients. You can add coconut, pretzels, white chocolate chips, raisins or whatever else you think can add a bite of flavor.
Giving a special handmade treat during this time of year is important to me. This recipe is one of my favorites to gift. Package a few Turtle Brownies in cello bags, tied with a special ribbon and a personal note on a tag.
For a special touch, add a small ornament to the ribbon. To gift more brownies, I like to package the brownies in a special box lined in parchment paper and tie with ribbon. What’s better than this during the holiday season?!
