How To Make Turtle Candy
Make something irresistible with this turtle candy recipe. Pecans are baked, slathered in caramel sauce, and topped with melted chocolate.
Place pecans in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 10 minutes or till lightly browned and fragrant. Let cool.
Arrange in clusters of 3 to 4 on silicone liners or parchment paper.
Combine butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt in a 6-quart pot. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Add the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla.
Continue cooking and stirring till mixture reaches 235 to 240 degrees F.
Quickly spoon the caramel over the pecan clusters, making sure caramel is touching each of the pecans. Let sit to harden.
Melt the chocolate chips and oil in the microwave at half power, stirring often till smooth. Spoon chocolate on top of each layer of caramel.
Let sit for 1 to 2 hours, or till hardened.
