These chocolate caramel turtles are so yummy, and very easy to make!


  • Pecans
  • Milk chocolate chips
  • Caramel bits
  • 2 small bowls
  • Parchment paper
  • Microwave
  • Measuring spoons
  • Wilton large treat cups (optional)
  • Clear plastic treat bags (optional)
  • Twist ties or ribbon (optional)


  1. Melt your caramel bites and chocolate chips in two separate microwave safe bowls on medium heat for 1-2 minutes or until caramel and chocolate are both melted (caramel will melt faster). Stir every 30 seconds.
  2. Put together groups of 3 pecans.
  3. Using a measuring spoon scoop a little melted caramel on each group of pecans.
  4. Use a clean measuring spoon to scoop a little melted chocolate on top of the caramel.
  5. Let your caramel and chocolate harden by placing the turtles in the fridge for about 15 minutes and enjoy!
  6. (Optional) Place a few turtles in your treat cups, then put into a clear plastic treat bag, and tie off with a twist tie or ribbon to give these as a gift!
