Turtle Candies Recipe

Serving Size : 16


  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups pecan halves
  • 28 caramels, unwrapped
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream


Microwave half the chips in a glass bowl at HIGH for 1 1/2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute.

Stir until smooth; cool until slightly thickened.

Drop chocolate by tablespoonfuls onto a wax paper-lined baking sheet, shaping into 16 (1 1/2 inch) circles.

Reserve remaining chocolate.

Arrange 4 pecans over each circle; chill until firm.

Place caramels and cream in a glass bowl; microwave at HIGH 2 minutes or until caramels melts, stir after 1 minute.

Let stand 4 minutes or until slightly thickened.

Spoon caramel mixture evenly over pecans.

Microwave remaining chocolate at HIGH 1 minute, stirring after 30 seconds; quickly spread over caramel mixture.

Refrigerate until firm.

YIELD: 16 candies.

NOTE: You don't need to use cream to melt with the caramels - milk or even water works just as well.
