I used to have a good recipe for making turtle candy with caramels and
pecans and chocolate, could you please help me find a recipe as I lost
mine, and I cannot find one
Thank You

Hi Laura,

Here are two.


Turtle Candy

1 bag caramels (wrappers removed) 
1 can condensed milk 
1 pound pecan halves 
milk chocolate for candy dipping 

Melt candies and milk in double boiler(can use microwave, but
burns easily). Add pecans, mix well. Drop by spoonful onto a wax
paper lined cookie sheet. Freeze. Dip into melted chocolate. Drop
onto wax paper. (a skewer is good for dipping) 
Betty Crocker Easy Turtle Candy 

4 oz  pecan halves (about 72) 
24  caramel candies 
1 t. shortening 
6 oz.  semi-sweet chocolate chips 

Heat oven to 300. Cover cookie sheet with aluminum  foil, shiny 
side up; lightly grease. For each candy, place 3 pecan halves in a 
"Y" shape on foil. Place 1 caramel candy in center of each "Y". 
Bake just until caramel is melted, about 9 - 10 minutes. Heat 
shortening and chocolate chips over low heat just until chocolate is
melted. Spread over candies and refrigerate 30 minutes.
