Turtle Pecan Pie Bars
Turtle Pecan Pie Bars are an irresistible treat that combines all the best flavors and textures in each and every bite. This is an absolutely fantastic blend of caramel, cream, chocolate and nuts. Yum. Yum. Yum. This dessert is also incredibly sweet, and so is one of those very occasional indulgences for most of us. Still, it hearkens back to when we ate turtles on special occasions like holidays and birthdays. This treat can be served warm, when it will be super sweet and a scoop of ice cream might go nicely with it, or chilled. When this dessert is cold, it becomes very dense and small pieces will go a long way.
Pecans are lovely nuts that are used in this particular dessert. They have a singular sweetness that is not found in other nuts, not even almonds. As well, they are less crunchy than many nuts and do not have the bitter flavor that often is found in nuts (think about walnuts). As a result, pecans can be added to many recipes without first toasting them to remove the bitter flavor. So pecans underscore flavors in other foods without their taste or texture coming to dominate the dish.
Turtle pecan pie bars will be a hit with everyone. This recipe also uses commercial caramels for the middle layer, which is fine. You might want to buy a few extra, for yourself, and any little helpers that might be hanging around. Even by themselves, caramels are another of those classic treats that really speak to home and family.
