Sometimes all you need is a spoon. Chocolate-covered brownie, caramel and nuts… Oh, my. This chocolate covered treat is the perfect dessert for any occasion! An easy recipe that comes together in a snap, this is one for the permanent file.
I am honored to be the official dessert bringer to all family gatherings. This past Christmas I had let time get away from me and I needed something super fabulous and I needed it super fast. Having a pan of my Lazy Day Brownies left from the homemade gifts we give out each year, I decided to create a fabulous trifle inspired by one of Chad's favorite candies.
He loves Turtles. No silly, not the 4 legged kind. The candy! Chocolate covered caramel and nuts... Oh my word! This Double Chocolate & Caramel Turtle Trifle was a hit! Not a bite left to take home and lots of recipe requests and you know what that means. LOVE.
With love from our simple kitchen to yours.
