3 mins
20 turtles


soft caramel squares
1/2 cup
dark or milk chocolate (your choice), chopped
125 ml
whole pecans, toasted
Fleur de sel, to taste


Step 1
Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).
Step 2
To toast the pecans, lay them out on a baking sheet and place in the oven approximately 10 minutes, or until lightly golden and fragrant.*
Step 3
On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, place 4 pecans in a cross formation for each turtle.
Step 4
Unwrap the caramels and place one in the centre of each pecan cross. Place a piece of chocolate (approximately 1 tsp. or 5 ml) on each caramel.
Step 5
Sprinkle with fleur de sel, to taste.
Step 6
Bake in the oven 2-3 minutes, or until the caramel and chocolate are melted.
Step 7
Let harden at room temperature for approximately 1 hour or 15 to 20 minutes in the fridge.


Toasting the pecans heightens their flavour but is not a necessary step. It’s a question of taste.
