With Valentines Day just around the corner, you will want to make some wonderful chocolate item! Yum......and these Chocolate Turtles (or Texas Turtles) are so easy to make. You see them in all the chain chocolate shops - I'm sure you have purchased one before!
Today is "Open House" which is all about home, cooking, baking, sewing, crafting, antiquing, DIY, garden, etc. Please share a post from your blog about any of these things! It would be nice of you would include a link to this blog on your post!
First of all....do you have one of those double boiler pot sets? They even have them in the discount stores. I have had mine since the 1970's.
Here is what you will need for the inside of the candy: 14 oz pkg Kraft Caramels, 2 Tb water and 3 cups of chopped pecans. For the chocolate outer coating you will need: 1 14 oz pkg milk chocolate chips and 1 oz paraffin.
Directions: Melt the caramels with 2 Tbs water in top of the double boiler over boiling water. Now add the chopped pecans and stir. Drop by loaded teaspoons onto a butter cookie sheet. Chill these for 1/2 hour in the freezer or overnight in the refrigerator.
Using the cleaned up double boiler, melt 14 oz pkg milk chocolate chips over boiling water with 1 oz paraffin. Dip the caramel pieces in the mix one at a time and return to cookie sheets - Cool and store in airtight container...makes around 40 pieces.
