Turtle Brownies

The recipe for these fabulous candy-like cookie bars was given to Jill by good friend Marion Schulze, so we have her to thank for those extra pounds!

1 box packages German chocolate cake mix

1 cup chopped walnuts (pecans or your favorite)

3/4 cup melted butter

1 can Eagle sweetened condensed milk

1 cup (6 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips

14 oz package caramel squares

350 degree oven

Butter and flour 8 or 9” x 13” glass baking dish.  (Baker’s secret or Crisco cooking spray with flour works best.)

Mix cake mix, nuts, 3/4 cup melted butter, and 1/2 can sweetened condensed milk.  Mixture will be quite stiff.  Spread 1/2 mixture into bottom of pan.  Bake for 8 minutes.

Unwrap and melt 14 oz of caramels with remaining 1/2 can of sweetened condensed milk.

After removing baked brownie mixture from oven, sprinkle 1 cup chocolate chips.  Pour melted caramel over and spoon drop remaining 1/2 of brownie dough on top.

Bake 18 minutes more at 350 degrees.  Cook and cut.(I put mine in cupcake liners after cutting them up – they’re pretty messy!)
