4 Ingredient Walnut & Salted Caramel Chocolate Turtles


I kid you not when I say that it took me a little less than 30 minutes to make 32 of these little goodies.  Four ingredients...that's it! I like to make these when I need to make a dessert and I am really short on time. So simple to make that you could even have your kids help you. Of course you will need to operate the oven and remove the trays from the oven for them, but other than that they can do everything else all by themselves. I always do a double batch when I make these...you might want to double up as well. Hope you enjoy these as much as we do!

Happy Baking,
Miranda

Ingredients:


1 cup walnuts halves, toasted
16 caramel candies
16 Wilton dark chocolate melts

sea salt, to garnish each candy



Directions:
Preheat the oven to 325°F.
Place a small cluster of walnut halves on parchment-lined or lightly greased baking sheet. 





Flatten each caramel cube into the size of a half dollar, and place on the pecans.


Heat in the oven for 2 to 3 minutes, until the caramel softens and begins to melt.

Remove from the oven; wait 1 minute, then top each cluster with one disk of chocolate, pressing it into the softened caramel gently.


Top each candy with a few flakes of coarse sea salt.



Allow the caramel and chocolate to cool and set before removing candies from the pan.
