Chopped pecans - 2 cups
White sugar - 2 cups
Unsalted butter - 1 cup
Eggs - 4
Unsweetened cocoa powder - 1 cup
All-purpose flour - 1 cup
Vanilla extract - 2 tsp
Individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped - 24
Pecan halves - 42
First you need to preheat the oven to 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C.
Then, you need to take a 9 x 13 inch baking pan and grease it.
Take a mixing bowl and add two cups of white sugar, one cup of unsalted butter, four eggs and one cup of unsweetened cocoa powder.
Then blend all these ingredients thoroughly.
Next you need to add one cup of all-purpose flour and one teaspoon of vanilla to the mixing bowl containing the ingredients you added.
Blend the mixture again.
After mixing the ingredients, you need to pour and spread the batter in the baking pan you greased earlier.
Later, take the chopped pecans and spread them over the batter.
Now place the baking pan in the oven and bake for 25 minutes.
After baking, let it cool on a wire rack.
Take a saucepan and add the caramels to it. Turn the heat on the stove to low and melt the caramels over this.
Remember to stir the caramels until they are completely smooth.
After melting the caramels, remove the saucepan from the heat, and add the remaining vanilla to it.
Now, pour the melted mixture on the brownies you baked.
Then take the pecan halves and press them into the caramel in neat rows.
In the end, set the turtle brownies aside for around 10 minutes in order to allow them to set.
