On the seventh day of Christmas YoungWifey shared with me, her pecan turtle recipe, raspberry chocolate truffles, gingerbread fudge, peppermint bark, dark chocolate peanut butter balls, cracked glass candy, and her peanut butter fudge recipe…
This is one of my favorites!
Ingredients: about 25 soft caramels (unwrapped), 75 pecan halves, 2 Tbs. cream, 1 c. mini chocolate chips
Directions: Melt caramels into cream in a double boiler. Once well blended remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes. Arrange pecan halves in clusters of 3 on a wax paper lined baking tray. Pour about 1 teaspoon of caramel in the center of each cluster, careful not to cover the pecan ends. Set aside to harden. Melt chocolate chips in the double boiler, careful not to burn. Coat each cluster, making sure to hide all caramel, yet not cover each pecan tip. Refrigerate until hardened.
