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!
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.

Has anyone had trouble with the caramel being too chewy by chance?
These look yummy but what is the white in picture 3?
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.
Depending on our caramel, heating it in the oven can make them harden up after they cool. May depend on the brand of caramels you were using also.
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!
I’ve seen these treats all over pinterest and I’m just dying to try them! They’re perfect for Christmas, but why wait right? I might have a little Christmas celebration in May ;)
