Turtle brownies recipe, where's the brownie?

My son isn't a big cake eater but he loves brownies. I want to make
him Turtle Brownies for his birthday, but all the recipes I find use
cake mix.  Will this recipe come out like brownies because of the
other ingredients or something?   I had a recipe I used to make years
ago but can't remember it anymore.  I think it had sweetened condensed
milk, caramels, and pecans tht you just poured on top of the brownies.
Now I am wondering if I used cake also. Any input would be
appreciated!  Thank you!

Condensed milk. My goodness what a 50-year flashback that produced -
memories of "connie onnie butties".  It put's weight on just thinking
about them!

Guess you might not be looking in the right area.   These took about
40 seconds to find.   Not a single cake mix recipe among the choosing.
