Microwave Turtles

Helen Matthews, Linville High School

  • 2 (6 1/4 oz) package vanilla caramels
  • 2 Tbsp evaporated milk
  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • 1 (8 oz) package semi-sweet chocolate pieces
  • 1/2 bar paraffin, broken in pieces

Combine caramels and milk in bowl and place in a microwave oven for 2 or 3 minutes, stopping occasionally to stir with a wooden spoon. Soon as the caramels melt, remove and beat until creamy. Add pecans and stir until well coated. Drop by teaspoons onto waxed paper. Let clusters cool 15 minutes.

Combine chocolate pieces and wax in bowl. Melt; stir thoroughly.

Insert a toothpick in cluster and dip into chocolate mixture.

Place turtles on waxed paper to dry.
