You know those delicious gooey turtles (or pecan caramel chocolates) that everyone keeps reaching for on the chocolate platters at simchas? Well, here they are! Use the caramel recipe below in the Milk Munch Bars if you’d like, or keep on swiping from the pan – it’s just as good on its own!
Bring cream to a boil in a heavy saucepan. Stir in sugar and honey and return mixture to a boil. Simmer until mixture reaches 250 degrees Fahrenheit on a candy thermometer.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract, butter, and salt. Use for Caramel Turtles (below) or see other suggestions.
Yields 5 ounces
Arrange pecans on Gefen Parchment Paper in groups of five for a head and four legs.
Drizzle hot caramel over each “turtle,” forming a mound barely covering each pecan. Let cool several hours.
When hardened, dip into melted chocolate and allow to harden again.
Yields one 8-inch (20-centimeter) pan of caramels
