You know my 90/10 rule? You know, 90% of the time you eat healthy, clean, balanced meals and then 10% of the time you indulge and let yourself live? Well, this recipe definitely falls under that 10%! These cheesecake turtle brownies are seriously decadent...and once you find out how easy they are, you're definitely going to want to make a batch!
Here's the deal - a thick fudge brownie layer is swirled with caramel and a perfect cheesecake filling before being topped with toasted pecans and MORE CARAMEL! Oh, and extra dark chocolate chips for good measure, because, well, duh. And the best part? You use your favorite boxed brownie mix to make this recipe super easy! Yep, let's do this!
I like to make these gluten free by using my favorite gluten free brownie mix from King Arthur Flour. I then mix gluten free flour into the cheesecake batter, and voila! I dare you to eat just one of these brownies. Scratch that. I double dog dare you. It is darn near impossible to resist their perfectly sweet, chocolatey, caramel, pecan genius-ness.
