Bring on the brownies

Subscribe FREE to The Daily Recipe by clicking here.

I've been trying out different cookie/brownie recipes to
get a handful of fun summer sweets for taking along places
and these TASTY TURTLE BROWNIES will definitely remain on
my hit list this year. Oh, some people like them "bald",
frosted, with/without nuts, but these have it all and then
some. Bring out the milk and load them up for your next
picnic too! And a favorite gift-giving recipe is that
brownie mix layered in a jar I have that below too.


P.S. The brushes below are great for the grill!


This Turtle Has A Secret...

Normal Price: $9.99
DEAL PRICE: $2.99 

What a great idea! That's what everyone says about this item. 

Not just an appealing garden statue, this turtle cleverly 
conceals a secret spot to hide your spare key. Tuck near a 
door for a handy hide away. Good for a house or garage key.

Grab one or two while they last. This is an item we made a 
special purchase on and it is Below Cost! Once it sells out 
it is gone forever. Makes a great Housewarming Gift too.

Because of the low price, we must limit you to no more than 
six (6) per order. Check it out by visiting:

Turtle Key Hider/Holder




FIRST INGREDIENTS: For brownie layer
4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

SECOND INGREDIENTS: For caramel-pecan layer
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup light corn syrup
3 tablespoons water
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups pecans (6 ounces)

For garnish if desired: 1 ounce semisweet chocolate

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add butter and flour a 9-inch
square baking pan, tap off and discard the excess flour.

Make brownie layer:
In a heavy 1 1/2-quart saucepan melt chocolate and butter
over low heat, stirring, until smooth and remove pan from
heat. Cool mixture to lukewarm and stir in brown sugar and
vanilla. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well with a wooden
spoon until mixture is glossy and smooth. In a bowl sift
together flour, baking powder, and salt and add to
chocolate mixture, beating just until batter is combined
well. Spread batter evenly in pan and bake in middle of
oven 30 to 35 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.
Cool brownie layer completely in pan on a rack.

Make caramel-pecan layer:
In a heavy 3-quart saucepan bring sugar, corn syrup, water,
and a pinch salt to a boil over moderate heat, stirring
until sugar is dissolved, and boil mixture, without
stirring, until it turns a golden caramel. Remove pan
from heat and carefully add cream and vanilla (mixture
will bubble up and steam). Stir in pecans and quickly pour
mixture over brownie layer, spreading evenly. Cool brownies
completely in pan on a rack. 

For Garnish:
In a double boiler or metal bowl set over a saucepan of
barely simmering water melt chocolate, stirring, until
smooth and remove top of double boiler or bowl from heat.
Transfer chocolate to a small sealable plastic bag.
Squeeze chocolate into one corner of bag and with a sharp
knife cut a tiny slice off corner to form a small hole.
Squeeze chocolate decoratively over brownies.

Chill brownies, loosely covered, until caramel is firm, at
least 4 hours. Cut chilled brownies into 16 squares and
remove from pan while still cold. Let brownies come to
room temperature before eating. Brownies keep, covered
and chilled in one layer, 5 days.

on the time of year use fabric to match the season. You'll
want to store it in a cool dry place away from a heat

mixture. NOTE: Be sure to wipe out the inside of the jar
with a dry paper towel after adding the cocoa powder.
