These harvest homemade turtle candies are a quick, easy, and delicious fall treat! If you like chocolate and caramel, you have to try this recipe!


  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 1820 Kraft caramels – unwrapped
  • 12 Hershey’s caramel apple filled chocolates
  • Sea salt, to garnish


  1. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Make 12 piles of 5-6 pecan halves on the lined cookie sheet.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the caramels in 30 second increments until completely melted and smooth, stirring in-between.
  4. Add about 1 Tablespoon of the melted caramel on top of each pile of pecans. Be sure to cover every pecan piece so they will stick together.
  5. While the caramel is still warm, sprinkle with sea salt and place a Hershey’s caramel filled apple candy on top.
  6. Allow to cool and “firm up” for 1 hour before serving. Enjoy!
