Pecan Turtle Recipe

pecan turtle recipe

here’s what ya need:

2 bags of whole pecans (from the baking aisle)
1 large bag of whatever chocolate chips that you like ( i used milk chocolate!)
1 bag of kraft caramels
Couple of teaspoons of milk
Before you do anything else… line a cookie sheet w/ parchment paper & spray it well with a nonstick cooking spray. (you will probably need 2 cookie sheets)

Okay now, melt the caramel with the milk.(I put it in a microwave safe bowl, for about 20 seconds at a time until it is melted…stirring as I go)

Next, grab a bunch of your pecans & place them in little bite size clusters on your parchment paper… go ahead & do that, remember to leave enough room between them.

Now, take the caramel you just melted, with a spoon dollop a little bit over the pecans. Once you’ve done that to all of your clusters, place the cookie sheet in the freezer so that the caramel can harden.

While the caramel is cooling, grab another microwave safe bowl and melt your chocolate… watch out…my bowl gets really hot!

Once your chocolate is ready and the caramel has hardened… take the cookie sheet out of the freezer then dip the tops of each cluster into the chocolate.
Place back on the cookie sheet to set.

These are so YUMMY!
