It's delicious, but be sure to use a greased baking sheet, like stated, or a silicone mat. I used wax paper that then fused with the melted caramel. Also, I used an XL Hershey's chocolate bar to get larger squares of chocolate, but it refuses to set and stays semi-melted at room temperature. I plan to try this recipe again with a silicone mat and another form of chocolate, like chocolate chips or Baker's chocolate. Overall, good idea for a recipe, but the ingredients are vague which lead to experimentation that I was not expecting when making a surprise treat to give my fiance for Valentine's Day.

These were so fun and easy to make with my daughter. They combine 3 of my favorite things. Make sure you use good quality caramels and chocolate so it melts well.

SUPER easy recipe. Our caramel wouldn't melt properly so before placing them on the pecans I had to soften them in the microwave then flatten them on the turtle before putting in the oven. My family wouldn't stop eating them. Thanks for a recipe we will use every Christmas!!!

Awesome and so easy! It took longer to unwrap and arrange than bake and eat! I did clusters of 3 pecan halves and half of a square of caramel. After that melted, I put a hershey's kiss in the center of the caramel and melted that for 1 more minute. Then I pushed another pecan half down onto the kiss to flatten it. Yummy!

I don't think 6 is enough I will double it to at least have 12 of them, too good to have only 6!!!
