Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup caramel sauce
  • Sea salt flakes, for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter in 30-second intervals until completely melted.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter and granulated sugar. Stir until well combined.
  4. Add the eggs and vanilla extract to the butter-sugar mixture. Beat until smooth.
  5. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Stir until the dry ingredients are fully incorporated into the batter.
  6. Fold in the chopped pecans, reserving a handful for topping.
  7. Pour half of the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread it evenly.
  8. Bake the first layer for 15 minutes or until it sets.
  9. Remove the pan from the oven and drizzle the caramel sauce evenly over the partially baked layer.
  10. Carefully spread the remaining batter over the caramel layer, covering it completely.
  11. Sprinkle the reserved chopped pecans over the top.
  12. Return the pan to the oven and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes, or until the edges are set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs.
  13. Once baked, remove the pan from the oven and let it cool completely on a wire rack.
  14. Sprinkle sea salt flakes over the cooled bars for a delightful contrast of flavors.
  15. Once fully cooled and set, slice into bars and serve. Enjoy the rich, indulgent taste of these Salted Caramel Turtle Fudge Bars!
