Chocolate and Caramel Turtles

Chocolate and Caramel Turtles

Pin It    


Our recipe for those chewy chocolates is simple to make - and even simpler to eat. And yes, they do look a little like turtles, if you use your imagination!


1 pound vanilla caramel candies
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
8 ounces salted pecans or cashews
1 12-ounce package semisweet chocolate chips


Grease 2 large cookie sheets; set aside. In a double boiler or a microwave set on low power, melt the caramels and butter, stirring frequently until smooth.

Arrange 36 groups of 3 nuts 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets (see photo, opposite). Spoon melted caramel by teaspoons on top of the nuts. Cool for 15 minutes.

In a double boiler or a microwave set on low power, melt the chocolate chips, stirring frequently until smooth. Spoon the melted chocolate by teaspoons over each caramel turtle. Spread the chocolate with a spatula. Let candies set at room temperature, or to speed up the setting process, refrigerate briefly.
