Comment on this recipe

Store in a cool place in an air-tight container with waxed paper between layers.

Ingredients

1 package caramels, unwrapped
1 package chocolate kisses, unwrapped
2 packages (3.5 ounces each) pecan halves

Instructions

Yields approximately 48 turtles. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. On a cookie sheet, place pecans in groupings of 3. Place 1 caramel on top of each group of pecans. Carefully place in oven; bake 6 minutes. Caramels will soften, not melt. Remove cookie sheet from oven. Using a dip spreader or butter knife, press the caramels over the pecans. Place a chocolate kiss in the center of the caramel and pecans; return pan to oven for 2 minutes. Remove; spread chocolate over the caramel. Chill turtles for 30 minutes before serving.
