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.
