Salted Caramel & Pecan Turtles – 2 Ways

Have you noticed? I looove options.

It all boils down to my decision making skills.

I’m not typically an indecisive person. Ok, maybe sometimes.

But when I know what I want, I am quick to make up my mind.

However, when I know what I want AND THEN I can think of 5 jillion different ways to make/decorate it…

YOU get options. I just limited myself to two.

Salted Caramel & Pecan Pretzel Turtles.

&

Salted Caramel & Pecan Turtles. Sans pretzels.

Your choice.  Or you can make both and be totally decisive, like I am.

Salted Caramel & Pecan Turtles – 2 Ways

lightly adapted from King Arthur Flour

Ingredients:

2/3 cup chopped pecans, toasted

16 Pretzel Snaps (Optional)

16 caramel candies

1 (16 oz.) package Chocolate CANDIQUIK Coating

Garnish: a pinch of sea salt for each candy

1. Preheat the oven to 325°F.

2. Arrange the pretzel snaps on a parchment-lined baking sheet; divide the toasted pecans into 16 small piles on the parchment paper OR on top of each pretzel snap.

mmm…toasted pecans.

3. Flatten each caramel cube to approximately 1” square and place on top of the pecans.

4. Heat in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the caramel softens and begins to melt.

5. Remove from the oven; let cool.

6. Melt CANDIQUIK according to package directions.

For the Pretzel version: drizzle each candy with chocolate coating (optional: dip each candy in chocolate coating).

Sans pretzel: spoon a small amount of chocolate coating directly onto the parchment paper. Place the pecan/caramel candy on top of the chocolate. Drizzle with additional chocolate coating.

 

 

7) Top each candy with a few flakes of coarse sea salt. (Much coarser than mine…)

Yield: 16 candies.
