Turtle Brownies

Turtle Brownies
Makes 10
  • 2 (4-ounce) bars bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels, divided
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped and divided
  • 25 vanilla caramels, unwrapped
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  1. Line a 6-quart slow cooker with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine chopped chocolate and butter. Microwave on high in 30-second intervals, stirring between each, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Add sugar, whisking to combine. Whisk in eggs.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and 1 teaspoon salt. Add flour mixture to chocolate mixture, stirring just until moistened. Pour mixture into slow cooker. Cover and cook on low until edges are set, 2½ to 3 hours.
  4. Transfer slow cooker insert to a wire rack. Sprinkle with ¾ cup chocolate morsels and ¾ cup pecans.
  5. In a small saucepan, cook caramels, milk, and remaining 1 teaspoon salt over medium-high heat. Stir until caramels are melted. Drizzle over brownies, and sprinkle with remaining ¼ cup chocolate morsels and remaining ¼ cup pecans. Let cool completely. Using parchment as handles, remove from slow cooker, and cut as desired.
