    Crockpot Turtles Candy

    Crockpot Turtles Candy is an incredibly simple and impressive candy. A rich chocolaty recipe that you simply dump ingredients into your slow cooker, stir and scoop. Then garnish and gift (or serve). It doesn't get much easier than that!
    prep time: 25 MINScook time: 2 hourtotal time: 2 hours and 25 mins

    Ingredients

    • 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

    Instructions

    1. 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. 
    2. Meanwhile line counter top or table with a long piece of parchment paper. 
    3. Stir. Use 2 table spoons to scoop out candy from crockpot and scoop it onto parchment paper. Make sure candy is not touching.
    4. Meanwhile, melt 2 cups chocolate chips and chop 1/2 cup pecans. Drizzle over turtles and garnish with chopped pecans.
    5. Allow to set completely.
    6. Serve and enjoy!

    DONNA'S NOTES

    1. 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.

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

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

        Delete
      3. I would think they are just shelled pecans.

        Delete
      4. They are sold in the baking aisle (not candy or snack)of stores. They are labeled raw right on them. Fishers and Diamond are the most common brands that sell them.

    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.

      3. Carmel bits are sold in baking isle at most stores. Just look for the label. They are tiny unwrapped Carmel for baking.

    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.

      ReplyDelete
    17. Picture shows whole pecan half with chopped pecans for garnish. You use both forms. Pecan halves look so pretty. I just wish this recipe made more than 12 for such an investment of time. Call me Miss Piggy ;)

      1. Did you get an answer about this? I’m curious as I’m looking to make for a Christmas but would like to make sometime this week. Thanks!

        Delete
      2. I would try stacking the bars in layers inside a one gallon sealable storage/freezer bag with parchment/baking paper between each layer. That or use airtight plastic food storage containers also stacking w/parchment/baking paper. I’m sure I will be making and storing mine a couple of months in advance.

    24. in the following paragraph what do you mean "not touching" - not touching what? you're to spoon out onto parchment paper, it has to touch. . . . - ??? "Stir. Use 2 spoons to scoop out candy from crockpot and scoop it onto parchment paper. Make sure candy is not touching."

      ReplyDelete

      1. Make sure the candy pieces are not touching one another. If they are they will get stuck together. Enjoy!

        Delete
    25. Made a couple of batches of these! To answer a couple of questions, here we go... raw pecans can be found on baking aisle in grocery, resist the temptation to stir during the first hour, depending on brand almond bark you use, it may need just the smallest amount of shortening (crisco) start with a 1/2 teaspoon and go from their to make smooth and creamy as in video. Don't add too much though. The recipe calls for whole pecan halves and you will divide using the majority in the recipe and chop the remaining for topping.

    26. What about clean up ? Is it a mess ?

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. If you don't use Pam or something like it on the sides and bottom, it will stick and be hard to clean.

        Delete
      2. use disposable crock-pot liners
