a candle clip that I purchased at K-mart on sale, they are battery operated timers so they come on and stay on for 8 hours, love the ease of that.

We've been busy getting ready around here...
doing a lot of this
This is something I came up with when I found I purchased the wrong brownie mix, a twist off Picky Palate's version is below and these couldn't be easier!
Carey's Turtle Brownies
1 box Turtle Brownie mix (the kind with the carmel)
1 bag Nestle toll house semi sweet chocolate chips chocolate
1 bag Nestle Toll house milk/carmel swirl chocolate chips
Make the brownies as directed on the box, stir in 1 cup of the milk/carmel swirl chips. Place into a mini muffin pan or mini cheesecake pan and spray generously with nonstick spray. Put into a 350 degree oven for about 20 min-23 min. Let cool completely, remove from pan. Then glaze them with the semi sweet chocolate chips and a few tbsp. of heavy whipping cream (optional) for added richness. Then take the carmel from the packet the brownie mix came in and drizzle onto the brownies. I added a milk chocolate carmel chip on top of each one for decoration. Delicious!
