Making Chocolate Turtles couldn't be easier! Pecan turtle candies come together quickly melting caramel and chocolate.
- 6 ounces pecan halves
- 8 ounces soft caramels
- 2 TBS water
- 10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Arrange the pecans in clusters of four, touching in the center and pointing out in opposite directions, like turtle legs.
Unwrap soft caramels and place into a medium bowl with 2 Tablespoons water. Microwave on high for 30 second increments, stirring after each time. Continue until caramel is fully melted, about 2 minutes. Stir with a spoon and allow to cool just slightly.
Add one dollop, about a Tablespoon in size, to the center of the pecans.
In another medium bowl add the chocolate chips and microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in-between until smooth.
Use a spoon to drizzle melted chocolate over the caramel and pecans, using the back of the spoon to spread out the chocolate.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Bring to room temperature to serve.
