National Pecan Day

Untitled design-21

Happy National Pecan Day! Instead of going with the classic Pecan Pie to celebrate the day, we decided to get a little more creative and make some Pecan turtles! Turtles are perfect for big and little kids alike, and look especially appetizing on our Scarlet Baking/Pizza Tray.

  1. 2 cups pecan halves
  2. 1 12oz. bag of dark chocolate chips
  3. 1 11oz. bad of wrapped caramel candies
  4. 2 tsp. vanilla
  5. 2 tbsp. whipping cream
  6. Sea salt to top
  1. Place pecan halves on baking sheet and bake on 375 for 3 minutes. Allow to cool.
  2. Use a double boiler to melt unwrapped caramels, cream, and vanilla. This process will take longer than the chocolate chips.
  3. Use a second double boiler to melt chocolate chips.
  4. Line a Baking/Pizza Tray with parchment paper and add 6 globs of chocolate, spread out evenly over the tray. Place 5 pecan halves in a turtle arrangement in chocolate globs. Put tray in the refrigerator to allow chocolate to set.
  5. After chocolate has set, take tray out and add a glob of melted caramel onto each turtle. Return tray to fridge to set caramel.
  6. Once caramel has set, take tray out of fridge and dollop on remaining chocolate so that the caramel is covered.
  7. Add sea salt to each turtle.
