If you love Turtle candies, you are going to LOVE Gourmet Caramel Turtle Brownies! A rich, ultra-fudgy, dark chocolate brownie base is filled with rich caramel and pecans, topped with a silky smooth chocolate glaze before being drizzled with even more buttery caramel sauce and sprinkled with pecan pieces. These are sinfully delicious and unapologetically decadent and indulgent - well worth the splurge for something special!
WHAT IS THE SECRET FOR THE BEST GOURMET BROWNIES?
For gourmet brownies, in addition to using premium chocolate and cocoa, only the best ingredients will give you the texture, richness and depth of flavor we all crave. Make sure to use fresh ingredients for the best results! I’ve made so many cakes, cookies and brownies through the years, and these are my recommendations:
RECIPE TIPS & TRICKS FOR THE BEST BROWNIES:
3 large eggs (room temperature)
3/4 cup (6 ounces or 1-½ sticks) unsalted butter
1 cup (6 ounces) 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips)
1-½ cups (300g) granulated sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup plus 1-1/2 Tablespoons (71g) cake flour
½ cup and 1 Tablespoon (60g) Dutch-processed unsweetened cocoa powder
½ teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk chocolate)
2 Tablespoons (1 ounce) unsalted butter
1/3 cup and 1 teaspoon (3 ounces) heavy whipping cream
4 Tablespoons (2 ounces) unsalted butter
12 ounces Werther’s Original Chewy Caramels (these set-up better than Werther’s Soft Caramels)
2 Tablespoons and 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons canola oil or coconut oil
2/3 cup (4 ounces) 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips)
2/3 cup (4 ounces) milk chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli Premium Milk Chocolate Chips)
1 cup chopped pecans
