Turtle Brownies

A picture is worth 1000 words.......

.......but I'll give you a few.    Gooey caramel.  Melted chocolate chips.  Crunchy pecans.   Warm brownie.

Are those enough words to get your mouths watering??  Here's the recipe, given to me years ago from my friend Suzie in Virginia.  

Turtle Brownies
1 package German chocolate cake mix
1 package (11 oz) soft caramels, unwrapped
2/3 cup evaporated milk, divided
3/4 cup melted butter
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9 inch square baking pan. 

In a small saucepot, melt together the caramels and 1/3 cup of evaporated milk over medium low heat, stirring until caramels are melted and smooth.  Set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, stir together cake mix, melted butter, and remaining 1/3 cup evaporated milk.  Divide in half, and press half into the bottom of your prepared baking pan.  Bake for 6 minutes.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips and pecans.  Drizzle caramel over the nuts and chips.  Flatten pieces of remaining dough with your fingers and place over caramel, covering as much of the caramel as you can.  Return to the oven and bake for an additional 16 to 17 minutes.  Cool on a wire rack.  Cut into small squares.  Serve while still warm, with a big glass of milk.   Yield:  25 of the best brownies you'll ever have!
