Welcome to Day 2 of the Twelve Days of Christmas Treats. Today I am featuring candy, Turtles to be exact. Any type of Turtle dessert is always delicious…..Turtle Cheesecake, Turtle Sundae, Cookies, Pie to name a few. The combination of chocolate, caramel and pecans is so satisfying.
Turtles seems to be a classic Christmas Candy. For as far back as I can remember, I remember Turtles on the candy dish this time of the year. I never liked the idea of making turtles, it seemed a bit time consuming, I then ran across this recipe. You bake the pecans and caramels at a low temperature and the caramels melt over the pecans, then you spoon melted chocolate over the top, that’s it!
If you are looking for a gift for someone on your list; a hostess gift, a co-worker, a neighbor for example, you may want to consider making these turtles. Enjoy!
Because you don’t make the caramels into a sauce, these are best served at room temperature.
Please take the time to share this recipe and comments are greatly appreciated.
