Caramel Turtles make sweet homemade gifts for anyone on your list

Caramel Turtles

Servings: About 30 candies



Ingredients:



4 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces

12 ounces pecan halves, toasted

1 cup evaporated milk

1 cup light corn syrup

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

8 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips



Method:



Cover 2 baking pans with parchment paper. Arrange clusters of 5 pecans.

In a pot, combine butter, evaporated milk, corn syrup, sugar and bring to a boil.

Add the butter and continue boiling, stirring constantly, until it reaches soft-ball stage, 235 F.

Remove from heat, add vanilla and let cool to about 200 F. Pour about a tablespoon of caramel on top of nut clusters.

Melt chocolate in the top of double boiler without getting too hot.

Once the caramel is cooled, drizzle or pour chocolate over the caramel. Let cool completely. Store in an airtight container.

Do not stack, because they will stick together.
