This is inspired by "Turtles" chocolates, a sticky caramel top layer on top of a chocolate brownie!..... instead of chocolate frosting, try this caramel topping on your next batch of brownies... no need for a candy thermometer to make this.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a heavy saucepan, bring sugar, corn syrup, water and a pinch of salt to a boil over medium heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved, then boil the mixture WITHOUT stirring until it turns a golden caramel.
  2. Remove the pan from heat, and carefully add in cream and vanilla (mixture will bubble up and steam).
  3. Stir in pecans and quickly pour mixture over top of cooled brownies, spreading with a spoon.

This is so good! I just made this to top off a caramel pecan cheesecake (#3130) for a fundraiser. There wasn't any left to take home! I followed the instructions exactly. At first, I thought it wasn't going to work, but after a few minutes, the colour changed, and it turned out perfectly. I had to let it cool quite a bit, or it may have melted the cheesecake. Thanks for the great recipe.
