Gardening is something you learn by doing---and by making mistakes....
Like Cooking, Gardening is a constant process of experimentation, repeating the successes and throwing out the failures.

Turtle Brownies

I got this recipe from my niece, but I tweaked it a bit...then had to 'untweak' half of it because my son, Ryan can't eat pecans.
I added pecans and coconut to only half of the brownies so Ryan could still enjoy the 'caramel only' side.

Turtle Brownies
preheat oven to 350F, grease a 9x13 baking dish

14 oz Caramels
2/3 Cup Evaporated Milk, divided
1 German Chocolate Cake Mix
3/4 Cup Butter
1/2 Package Milk Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Pecans, chopped
2 Cups Shredded Coconut, optional

In a sauce pan melt Caramels with 1/3 cup Evaporated Milk, set aside.
In a bowl combine Cake mix, butter and 1/3 Cup Evaporated Milk, spread 1/2 of mixture in a prepared 9x13 pan, sprinkle with chocolate chips and bake at 350F for 6 minutes.
Remove pan from oven, pour melted caramel on top of hot Chocolate Chips.  Sprinkle with pecans and coconut.
Crumble the rest of the Cake mix on top. (large sticky chunks-but it works)
Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes.
