Fudgy Turtle Brownies
Earn plenty of brownie points by offering these chewy, gooey treats to the kid's troop or to friends on any festive occasion. What makes them so extra? The fudgy base is covered with pecan halves, cream caramel, and melted chocolate—a combo borrowed from old-fashioned turtle candies.
For a store-bought cream-caramel sauce, we like Fat Toad Farm Traditional Goat's Milk Caramel ($14 for 8 oz., fattoadfarm.com).
