I don’t know about you, but moving stinks. Sure it’s exciting to move into a new place and get situated but the whole moving boxes and heavy furniture for extended periods of time thing I could do without. So while I slowly work on situating the new living situation, you guys can sit back and enjoy these turtle brownie bites. Whether you use a boxed mix or make the brownies homemade, all you have to add is caramel and pecans for turtley goodness.

Makes 24 mini brownie bites



3/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

1 Tbsp water

3/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 egg

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup chopped pecans


1 cup caramel ice cream topping

24 pecan halves, toasted


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 24 mini-muffin cups.
  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine sugar, butter, and water. Microwave on high for 1 minute or until butter is melted. Stir in the chocolate chips until melted.
  3. Stir in egg and vanilla extract. Add flour and baking soda, stirring until blended.
  4. Allow to cool to room temperature. Then, stir in chopped pecans.
  5. Spoon tablespoons of batter into muffin cups.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until top is set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out slightly wet. Place pan on wire rack to cool. (If the brownies do not sink slightly, press with your thumb or the back of a spoon.)
  7. Once brownies are cooled, remove from pan. Top each with about 2 teaspoons of caramel and top pecan halves.
