Easy Salted Caramel Turtles

Wow, is it Friday already? I’ve been a little MIA this week but don’t worry I have big plans and many, many ideas to share with you over the next few months. I’ll be back this weekend with a recap of our Halloween/birthday festivities, a giveaway, and hopefully a Christmas post. Before I get to all of that I want to show you how to make the easiest salted caramel turtles ever!

Salted Caramel Turtle Candy

This is such a quick recipe with only 4 ingredients involved. I adapted the recipe from Candiquick.

-I started by placing two pecans next to each other on a parchment covered baking sheet, then added a flatten caramel piece on top.

-Once my oven was preheated to 325 degrees I baked them for 5 minutes (keep an eye on them so that the caramel doesn’t burn).

-Allow to cool.

Dip the bottom into melted chocolate or spoon a small amount back onto the parchment paper and place the turtle on top. Pipe melted chocolate on top and sprinkle with sea salt.

I’m giving these away as a gift later tonight so I popped them in refrigerator to quickly harden. Now I need to think of a creative way to package them before we leave. This really was an easy treat to make as a last minute gift that I just had to share.

  43. These looked so good I had to make them straight away! They tasted wonderful, but were to had to bite. I had to cut them in half so we could eat them. Any idea why? I would love to make them again. They were beautiful and easy, just to hard.

  44. I saved this recipe to make some for my guys at work. Thank goodness I only had a about a half dozen caramels, because I ended up eating almost all of them.Well? I had to try them.They are super quick and really good with a hint of sea salt. I am making bunches for them tonight. I swear! Merry Christmas!
