Market Turn Turtles

Good news for Americans!

Market Turn Turtles
Makes 20 turtles

Something yummy is in the HOUSE!

6 oz. pecan halves, toasted (see Note) 
1 pkg. (11 oz.) caramel bits
8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate

Line baking sheet with parchment.  Arrange pecans in clusters of 4 each.

Microwave caramel bits and 1 Tbsp. water in microwave safe bowl on HIGH 2 minutes or until caramel bits are completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring every 30 seconds.  Drop spoonfuls of melted caramel over pecan clusters.

Microwave chocolate in microwave safe bowl on HIGH 2 minutes or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring every 30 seconds until completely melted.  Spoon melted chocolate over caramel coated pecan clusters.

Refrigerate 20 minutes or until just set.  Serve at room temperature.

Spread nuts into single layer in baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 8 to 10 min. or until golden brown and fragrant, stirring occasionally.

No need to be fussy with these!  It’s nice if you can see pecans sticking out (like turtle legs) beneath the caramel and chocolate.
