Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling Cook: 1 hour + cooling
Makesabout 4 dozen
There are nearly 100 on my Christmas cookie list, so I chop the nuts, mix thoroughly, and spread in a buttered pan to slice into neat candy squares. No change to flavor, but quicker and easier to wrap for shipping.
These candies remind me of turtles candy. So chocolatey good!
so good!!! i think it adds some flavor if you toast the nuts.
first time making my own caramel. I was very pleased, with the way the pieces turned out. I did use 2 candy thermometers to make sure the temp was correct, They came out prettier and taste better then the expensive store bough.
I am a TOH field editor and have made them for at least 15 years at Christmas! They are really good and such a treat! I would definitely recommend toasting the pecans!
I started making these when I found them in the Taste Of Home magazine. Can't remember what year but I do remember my daughter was a toddler, now she is 15. These have always been a big hit and my friends enjoy getting them as a gift.
Excellent and easy recipe but it makes closer to 90 turtles than the 48.
I made these last year for a christmas gift for a friend. She thought I had bought them at a candy store. I toasted the pecans for that extra crunch. These are easy, delicious, and impressive gifts if you can bear to part with them!

WOW...are these yummy!! This is the first time I had made candy and it was surprisingly easy. Made them for our church's High Tea and they were a hit. I melted the chocolate in a double boiler and added double the shortening to get a finer drizzle. Sooooo good!!
