Turtles have consistently been one of my preferred confections. The crunchy walnuts, the chewy caramel, the liquefy in your mouth chocolate. Essentially extraordinary. I don't have the foggiest idea why I never thought to make a natively constructed form before now.

I've needed to make Turtle Groups in light of the fact that the kinds of chewy natively constructed caramel, fresh walnuts and eminent chocolate all consolidated into one ecstatic sweet is only a nibble of paradise directly here on earth, that is the reason. Paradise. On. Earth. Folks, this natively constructed turtle treat is astonishing. Route superior to anything any locally acquired turtles I've at any point attempted!

The hardest part is trusting that the chocolate will set up. Be understanding, it can take for a little while. Mine weren't completely set up for two or three hours. Of course, you don't need to hold up that long to eat one!You can tell they are set up when the chocolate loses its gleaming gloss.

I adore Turtle Bunches and they are shockingly better when they are custom made! So I trust I'll try these this Christmas season!


  • 2 1/2 Cup pecans
  • 1/2 Cup butter (I use salted)
  • 1 Cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup light corn syrup
  • 7 ounces sweetened condensed milk (1/2 of a 14 ounce can)
  • 1/2 t vanilla
  • 1 (12 ounce) package milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 t shortening

  1. Toss 2 1/2 cups of pecans into a large skillet. Cook them over medium high heat, stirring occasionally, until they have darkened just a bit and smell wonderful. Should only take a few minutes.
  2. Use 2 large cookie sheets. Line them with parchment paper and spray it with cooking spray. Arrange your pecans into clusters, three to a group works well. You want to leave some space (about an inch) between each cluster.
  3. Make your caramel (full tutorial with pictures found here). Place 1/2 C butter into a medium-sized sauce pan. Melt it over medium high heat. Add 1 C brown sugar, 1/2 C light corn syrup and 7 ounces sweetened condensed milk to the pan. Increase the heat just a bit and stir it continually. Cook and stir until it reaches 235-240 degrees. I generally remove it from the heat when it reaches about 234 degrees. It will continue to rise in temperature just a bit even without the direct heat, making the caramel just the right texture.
  4. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.
  5. Carefully drizzle about 1 1/2 teaspoons of caramel over each nut cluster. You’ll need to work quickly as the caramel will begin to set up. Be sure there is caramel touching all of the nuts in your cluster. The caramel works like glue, sticking the nuts together.
  6. In a microwave safe bowl pour 12 ounces of milk chocolate chips. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each cooking interval.
  7. Add 1/2 teaspoon of shortening to the melted chocolate. Allow it to sit for a minute or two (so it can melt and make the chocolate chips more spreadable). Stir it all together.
  8. Spoon about 1 1/2 teaspoons of melted chocolate over the top of the caramel and nuts. Swirl it around along the top making a pretty swoop with your spoon.
  9. Allow the chocolate to set up. Once it has hardened and cooled you can serve them immediately, or transfer them to an air tight container.
