This is a tried and true recipe !! if you want to satisfy your sweet tooth, you cannot go wrong here. This is the way my Mother always made, jut give a shot it won’t fail you ! These three-ingredient turtles are probably the easiest and cutest dessert you’ll ever make.
If you’re not experienced turtles, their pecans with caramel poured on top and chocolate on top. To make the candies seem like turtles, in the end, you require 5 pecan halves. So, in a nutshell, lovely and delectable. What’s more, the nicest thing about these turtle candies is that they’re gluten-free. They’re prepared in a microwave oven. Microwave, to be precise. There’s no need for an oven. On the burner, there’s no beautiful caramel sauce.
Although, if you’re feeling that way, you could go that path. I did, however, have caramel chunks on hand, which worked well in my microwave. So we’re talking dessert in under ten minutes. That’s something I’m all about. simple and easy ! My whole family loves this recipe so much. If it were for them, I’d be making this every day! Give it a shot, you’ll love it!To Make this Recipe You’ Will Need the following ingredients:
12 ounces soft caramels (homemade or store-bought)
6 ounces pecans (halves, toasted)
8 ounces chocolate (semi-sweet, chips are fine)
1 Gather the ingredients.02 Prepare a cookie sheet by covering it with aluminum foil or parchment, and spraying the foil or parchment with nonstick cooking spray.03 Arrange the pecans in clusters of 4 with each pecan pointing in a different direction (like turtle legs). Alternately, you can just drop them in small clusters on the baking sheet.04 Unwrap the caramels if wrapped and place them in a microwave-safe bowl. If they are very stiff, add a spoonful of water so the final product will be softer. Microwave them until melted, stirring after every 30 seconds.05 Allow the caramel to cool slightly, so it’s not piping-hot, then use a spoon or a small candy scoop to drop a spoonful of caramel each pecan cluster. They are meant to be a rustic candy, so don’t worry about keeping the turtles round or about having some of the pecans poking through.
