Gooey Turtle Bars

March 26, 2014
I wish that these pictures could better depict the 'gooey' part of these bars better. Because, they are in fact, pretty, gooey.  One of the best kind of gooey, in my opinion, chocolate and caramel. They go so perfect together, don't they? These also include a nice crunch of pecans too..making them a perfectly lovely, turtle bar.
These  bars were a snap to toss together. They would work great for a potluck, bake sale or just any ole' day you are craving a some chocolate, caramel goodness.
A new family favorite right here!
