Turtle Bars are a decadent treat with a shortbread crust, delicious caramel and pecans and perfect for your sweet tooth cravings!
As is usually the case, I was craving something sweet, rich, decadent and of course chocolate. I had a can of dulce de leche- no surprise there! So I started thinking about cookies with caramel. The brown sugar shortbread was sure good with dulce de leche but I need some chocolate, and well here you go, turtle bars.
I will be keeping this one in the front of the recipe box and making them often. I loved them and really they couldn’t be simpler. The are perfect for special occasions, parties or just for everyday cravings. Make them, eat them, and be happy!
