Ingredients:

64 Pecan halves

11 oz. Baking/cooking caramels

1 Bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

How to make Homemade Turtle Candy with Pecans and Caramel:

Step 1. Place the pecan halves flat side down on a parchment or silicone baking mat lined baking sheet. Separate them into sets of four, and form them into cross or β€œx” shapes. Leave some room between each set of four pecan halves. These will be the base for your turtle candies.

Step 2. Unwrap the caramels and place them into a microwave-safe bowl. Add a tablespoon of water to the bowl, and microwave for 30 seconds at a time until completely melted and smooth.

Step 3. Use a spoon to spoon the caramel mixture over the center of each group of pecan halves on your baking sheet. You can use a generous helping for each one.

Step 4. Add the chocolate chips to a microwave-safe bowl, and heat for 30 seconds at a time until completely melted and smooth.

Step 5. Spoon the chocolate mixture over the caramel mixture in the center of each candy.

Step 6. Place the turtle candies into the freezer to set for at least half an hour before serving.
