Original recipe yields 40 turtles

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Arrange pecans on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake pecans in the preheated oven until fragrant and lightly browned, 7 minutes.
  4. Melt chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching.
  5. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil; grease with butter.
  6. Combine caramels, water, and butter in a saucepan over low heat; cook, stirring occasionally, until caramels are melted and smooth. Fold in pecans.
  7. Drop caramel mixture by the spoonful onto the prepared baking sheet. Allow to cool and harden.
  8. Drizzle chocolate over caramel nut clusters. Refrigerate to set, about 1 hour.

I just made these and they turned out great! I used parchment paper and put them in the freezer before I dipped them in chocolate. I always use parafin wax when I melt chocolate for dipping.

I made these for a family Christmas party and they were a big hit. I followed the recipe exactly, easy to make and delicious. I used semisweet chocolate chips and substituted parchment paper (buttered)for the aluminum foil.

I made this exactly as directed.The pecans should be on the bottom in little clusters or arranged, then the melted caramel added. Also, the chocolate doesn't need to be melted until the caramel is set.
