Crockpot Turtles Candy (New VIDEO)


Crockpot Turtles Candy is an incredibly scrumptious treat. A simple recipe with perfectly roasted pecans, creamy caramel, and rich chocolate. It is so easy it just about cooks itself.  Simply dump ingredients into your slow cooker, stir and scoop. Then garnish and gift (or serve).  It doesn't get much easier than that! 


I love my Crockpot Candy so much that I decided to create Crockpot Turtles Candy's now too. Honestly, I love the ease of my crockpot candy and I can not fathom how long it would take to make homemade turtles the 'hard way'. Just toss in the slow cooker, stir a few times and scoop it out. Oh and garnish if you like. It is such an easy recipe. You are going to love these. We can't stop eating them.


With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

Crockpot Candy is the easiest and most impressive homemade candy ever.  A rich chocolaty, peanutty 4-ingredient recipe that you simply toss in the slow cooker, stir a few times and scoop it out. It doesn't get much easier than that!


No-Bake Avalanche Cookies are a simple make-at-home copycat recipe with just 5 ingredients. Imagine creamy peanut butter fudge speckled with Rice Krispies, fluffy marshmallows and chocolate chips. It's the ultimate treat. A creamy, fudgy, crunchy, peanut buttery treat that has the right touch of chocolate and is perfectly sweet!


Best Ever Pecan Pie Bars are so good people offer to pay me for them.  A fabulous recipe with a caramelized pecan pie set atop a shortbread crust is the absolute perfect nut bar.  My family requests more of this dessert than any other every year.


Crockpot Turtles Candy
SERVES 12  |  ACTIVE TIME 25 Min  |  TOTAL TIME 2 Hours 25 Min

16 ounces whole raw pecans (reserve 1/2 cup for garnish)
24 ounces chocolate flavored candy coating (almond bark or candiquik)
2 ounces (1/2 bar) German chocolate bar (by Baker's)
1 (11-ounce) bag caramel bits
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Layer pecans, then candy coating, then chocolate bar into crockpot (I used a 5 quart). Cover. Cook for 1 hour on low temperature. Do not stir.

After 1 hour stir mixture and continue to cook, stirring every 15-20 minutes for another hour (a total of 2 hours). Once mixture has completely come together, stir in caramel bits and turn off the heat. Cover for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile line counter top or table with a long piece of parchment paper.

Stir. Use 2 spoons to scoop out candy from crockpot and scoop it onto parchment paper. Make sure candy is not touching.

Meanwhile, melt 2 cups chocolate chips and chop 1/2 cup pecans. Drizzle over turtles and garnish with chopped pecans.

Allow to set completely.

Serve and enjoy!

DONNA'S NOTES: You can double the recipe, but the caramels will start to get a little gritty in the candy if not scooped out quickly enough. So, be careful.  The photos above are from a double batch that I made, the video is a single batch. Scoop fast.

  1. miammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm merci beaucoup

  2. What are RAW pecans? Do I have to go buy them in the shell. Not gonna happen.

    1. Not roasted. Most stores have these. Just check the label.

    2. Most nuts for cooking are sold raw, shelled, in bags. Raw means not already cooked here.

    3. I would think they are just shelled pecans.

  3. They have shelled Pecans in bags

  4. You can purchase shelled pecans

  5. Raw just means not roasted. When you buy them in the store without the shell, that's raw. I would only use pecans in the Shell if they came from my Grandma's tree. I'm trying this out this weekend.

  6. Is there any reason NOT to use toasted pecans? They taste so much better!!

    1. I would definitely toast them lightly in a skillet or oven..so must richer tasting.

  7. Go to Sams,Wal-mart or grocery stot store

  8. You can buy them already shelled in a bag.

  9. Any Bulk Barn or store that sells natural foods

  10. Approximately how many does a single batch make?

  11. Can you use real carmels instead of Carmel chips?

  12. Can you use real carmels instead of Carmel chips?

    1. I wondered the same thing? What is a Carmel chip anyway?

  13. Have your tried the while chocolate almond bark? Crock pot peanut clusters are the best ever and they have the milk chocolate chips, Bakers German Chocolate baking bar, and white almond bark. Also, didn't see a reply to how much a single batch makes? thanks in advance as will be trying these.

  14. Dont be scared to try even its not exactly the same product be creative...

  15. About how many pieces does this make?

  16. Picture shows "whole" pecan half, but recipe says to chop the 1/2 cup. Ithink whole half looks good t I bet the chopped is easier to eat. I too would roast thepecans first.
