These turtles turned out so good I had to make another batch. Because when I got home to find without a do not eat sign the vanish fast. Such is life to have to make more goodies is not a punishment for me I whipped up another batch and here they are for you viewing pleasure.
These are made from more of the gifted pecans I spoke of a few days ago. Boy have I enjoyed having them for holiday treats and so have my taste testers. They take a little work shelling but that’s what the taste testers are good at crack and shelling pecans for me. I think it a pretty good estrangement a little work for some sweet treats!
- 1 bag Kraft caramel bits
- 1 bag dark or milk chocolate
- 2 to 3 cups whole pecan halves (toast the pecans for 10 minutes in a 350°f oven) optional
2 parchment or silpat lined baking sheets. 20 minutes to 2 hours chill time. Melt the caramel bits to package direction. In a microwave safe glass bowl melt the chocolate for 1 minute stir then melt for 10 seconds at a time until melted. Be sure to stir after each heating to check if it has melted.
I had some left over heath bar crunch I sprinkled on the chocolate
Arrange all the pecans in a shape of 4 pecans for legs and 1 as the head on the cookie sheets. Add a Tablespoon or so of melted caramel to the center being sure to cover the pecan all but a small part of the outside ends. Cover the caramel with chocolate and let set until firm.
