    I changed this recipe quite a bit. I didn't have pecans so I used walnuts. After reading the reviews, I decided not to drizzle the caramel over the brownies after they were baked instead I swirled it in with a knife along w/ the nuts before baking.They turned out wonderfully.  -  21 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I love this recipe because turtles are my favorite candy. I also found the caramels hardened too much on top, so I added butter continuously while melting the caramel until it remained soft on my stir spoon after cooling. That fixed the problem and these brownies never stay in the house more than one day.  -  20 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These are good, but just a touch too dry for my families taste. Ice cream over it solves that however. Also, just a tip for people who are new to cooking, cream the sugar and butter first before adding the cocoa and such. Otherwise you just work too hard getting the butter to fully blend.  -  28 Jun 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
