Chocolate Caramel & Pecan Clusters

Chocolate Caramel & Pecan Clusters

We make chocolates every year during the Holiday’s. I had never made Turtles before. My mom use to make them when I was younger. So, this year I thought we would give Chocolate Caramel & Pecan Clusters a whirl. Definitely will make them again next year.

Chocolate, Caramel & Pecan Clusters
 
Ingredients
  • 1 lb bag of halved pecans, try to find a bag with the least amount of broken pecans.
  • 1 bag (14 oz) caramels
  • 2 Tbs milk
  • 12 oz melting chocolate, I prefer dark chocolate
  • 6 oz white melting chocolate
  • sea salt
  • waxed paper
Instructions
  1. Place pecan halves on waxed paper in clusters of three.
  2. In a sauce pan melt caramels (unwrapped) with 2 T milk over medium heat.
  3. When caramels are melted smooth, spoon approximately 1 tablespoon full of caramel over each cluster of pecans.
  4. Melt dark chocolate. You can use a double boiler or microwave. I place chocolate wafers in a bowl and microwave on DEFROST for a couple minutes. Make sure to cheek it often and stir, DO NOT WHIP.
  5. When chocolate is melted smooth, spoon approximately 1 tablespoon of chocolate over the pecans & chocolate.
  6. While chocolate is still setting, add a pinch of sea salt to the top.
  7. Melt white chocolate. Pipe it or drizzle it over the cluster. I put the melted white chocolate in a sandwich baggie. cut a small corner off & piped the chocolate over the top. No-mess cleanup.
  8. Place in refrigerator to harden the chocolate & caramel.
  9. Store in the refrigerator.
  10. Let set at room temp. for about an hour before serving.
