Easy Turtle Brownies - The Southern Lady Cooks

These Easy Turtle Brownies are so easy to make and so good! My family absolutely loved them and they are super simple to throw together. Perfect for any occasion and so if you love caramel and cream cheese you will love these wonderful brownies.

Easy Turtle Brownies Simple Ingredients:

Fudge Brownie Mix (9X13) + ingredients for brownie mix

Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Cream Cheese

Powdered Sugar



Caramel Ice Cream Topping

These brownies are so easy to make since they start with a brownie mix. You make the brownies according to the package directions then follow the rest of the directions I have included in the recipe card below. I think these brownies are best served at room temperature but I do keep them in the fridge. Just take them out about 15 minutes before you serve them.

As you can see these brownies are only a few ingredients so that makes these super easy! Kids love these brownies, they are a little messy but they are so worth it!

If you love homemade brownies, you will love our Lunch Lady Brownies. They are one of our most popular recipes and the frosting is so delicious!
