We had a friend that would always give away boxes of Homemade Chocolate Turtle Candy at Christmas and Easter time. They were delicious and we felt special to receive these sweet treats of pecans, caramel, and chocolate. Sad to say that we no longer live near her and every year I miss these Candy Turtles. They are really not that hard to make but they make the most thoughtful and special gifts. We thought we would try our hand at making some Chocolate Turtle Candy today.
These candy turtles are made with only three ingredients, four if you add a little decoration like these white chocolate stripes.
With candy making or should we say candy assembling because that’s how candy turtles are made, assembling the ingredients, there is no baking nor mixing in this instructions. It’s just heating up our chocolate and caramel.
This is a recipe that would be fun to do with kids, they could assemble the pecans in the shape of the turtles and watch while an adult heats the chocolate and caramel. I know they would love eating them.
