Mini Turtle Brownie Bites

These bad boys are just flat out delish.
Actually, anything with dark chocolate and caramel will rock my socks off.
Are you drooling yet?

What if I told you that the recipe was super simple, too?

Oh yes. Get out your baking apron and get in the kitchen ladies (and gentleman, if any....).

What You'll Need:
*1 box dark chocolate brownie mix, plus ingredients to prepare mix
*1/2 cup chopped pecans
*dark chocolate frosting
*1/2 coarsely chopped pecans (for turtles)
*12 caramels
*1-2 tablespoons whipping cream

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 36 mini (1.5 inch) muffin cups with paper cups.
2) Prepare brownie mix according to package directions. Stir in chopped pecans.
3) Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling 2/3 way full. Bake 18 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Allow cupcakes to cool.
4) Frost cupcakes and place roasted pecans on top.
5) Cook and stir caramels and 1 tbsp cream in small saucepan over low heat until caramels are melted and mixture is smooth. Add additional cream if necessary to thin mixture. Spoon caramel evenly over cupcakes.
5) ENJOY!!!

Let me know if you tried these! I would love to hear your opinions!
