Are you team fudgy brownie or cakey brownie? I am usually all about the fudgy brownies but I must say, this Chocolate Turtle Brownie with the gooey almond butter caramel and chocolate sauce pairs perfectly with the cakey brownie. It’s the best of both worlds!
I have a major sweet tooth around the holidays and skipping dessert is just not an option. Navigating the holidays with food intolerances or being on a special diet can be extremely difficult and intimidating. One of my tricks for making sure you can eat something at family gatherings, work parties or parties with friends is by making a dish that is compliant with your diet. This Chocolate Turtle Brownie is sweet enough to help curb the sweet tooth, is beautiful enough to wow all your friends and family and is healthy enough to where you don’t feel too guilty eating that second helping.
HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE TURTLE BROWNIE
- The first step in making this brownie is to mix up the brownie batter. This is so incredibly easy since the recipe comes together in one bowl! The brownie batter is poured into either a cast iron skillet or an 8×8 baking pan.
- While the brownie bakes in the oven, almond butter and maple syrup are mixed together and slowly boiled on the stove until a thick caramel is formed. After that, chocolate chips and coconut milk are mixed making a thick and creamy chocolate sauce.
- Once the brownie comes out of the oven and cools slightly, the almond butter caramel and the chocolate sauce are drizzled on top and then chocolate chips and pecan pieces are sprinkled on top.
