Triple Turtle Fudge Brownies
Just made these yesterday, and wow were they awesome! A little of these go a long way!!
Cookie Dough Layer:
3/4 cup (1 1/2 stick) butter
2 cups + 2 Tbs. flour (10 5/8 ounces)*
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup brown sugar (7 ounces)*
1/2 cup sugar (3 1/2 ounces)*
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. almond extract*
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup caramel bits
1/2 cup chopped pecans
In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Set aside and allow it to cool for 10 minutes.
In a medium bowl, measure flour, baking soda, and salt and whisk until combined. Set aside.
Add both sugars to the butter and mix by hand. If you prefer, you can use a mixer. Add the egg and egg yolk and mix to combine. Stir in the almond extract. Slowly stir in the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.
Add the chocolate chips, caramel bits and chopped pecans and mix thoroughly. If the batter is tough, use your hands to get everything combined.
1/2 package of Keebler Elf Wafer cookies with fudge filling
Assembly: Line a 9x9 pan with foil overlapping the edges so you can remove brownies when cool. Mix the cookie dough using (about 1/2 the recipe) and press onto the bottom evenly. Either freeze the rest of the dough or use the rest to bake the cookies at 375 for 8-10 minutes.
Next layer the cookies on top of the dough. I used half the package. After you have mixed your brownies according to the directions, spoon the mixture over the cookies.
bake in a pre-heated 350 oven for 30-40 minutes. You don't want ot over bake so watch carefully! I checked at 30 minutes and mine were ready. Let sit until cool and then lift out of foil. Cut and enjoy. You can garnish with caramel sauce and ice cream! YUMMY!
