Sea Salt Caramel Pecan Turtles

Pecan Turtles with Sea Salt
Course: Sweets
Cuisine: Candy
Author: Cynthia


  • 72 pecan halves
  • 24 caramel candies unwrapped
  • 1 6 ounce package chocolate chips chocolate or semi-sweet


  • Heat oven to 350*F. Place a sheet of aluminum foil, on a cookie sheet and spray with vegetable oil.
  • For each candy, place 3 pecan halves in a "Y" shape on the foil. Place on caramel over the center. Bake about 6-7 minutes, just until the caramel melts. The caramels might still appear un-melted, press them gently with the back of a spatula to flatten slightly. Cool 2-3 minutes.
  • Melt chocolate chips over a very low heat (or use a double boiler), stirring. Spoon chocolate over the candies, leaving just the tips of the pecans uncovered. Sprinkle with sea salt flakes. Chill until chocolate firms, about 10 minutes. Makes 24
