|Unwrap Dad's home made caramels. (Try not to eat them.) :^)|
|Cut caramels to desired size (if needed)|
|I found my old "Turtle" mold ~ double fun!|
Have a pecan and caramel ready to go for each mold.
|Start the water boiling in the bottom of the double boiler.|
I broke up a dark chocolate candy bar and placed in the top.
This is not the best choice for chocolate but it was my best option for the day.
|The caramels that don't make it into the turtles will soon be transformed. |
I have these laying on my baking sheet. It is pliable but heavy duty enough to be moved into the refrigerator or freezer.
|I put some white chocolate chips in a bowl ready to melt at the end.|
|Doesn't melting chocolate look delicious. I decided to do this last minute so the only think I could find was a candy bar (not the best choice but it works.)|
|Sorry, when working with candy there isn't always the time to stop and take pictures.|
Dip each caramel in the chocolate and place on the mat.
Sprinkle with salt as it dries. (I got just a touch too much salt.)
|Now onto the Turtle molds. Put just a small amount of chocolate in the base of the mold.|
|Place the Pecan in first (round side to table flat side up) then put the caramel on top.|
|Fill the rest of the mold with melted chocolate.|
|As I said, not a good choice for chocolate. It got a little messy. But I melted the white chocolate and drizzled it over the top.|
|Catch those turtles and eat 'em up!|
|I refrigerated the candies to help them set. Now it is time to wrap them again and share them with friends.|
