Because I love turtles, I have tried to make them every year. They have never turned out until this year. I decided to analyze what I did not like about them. First, using five pecans made them just way too big, so I used just one pecan. Then I cut the caramels in half and put them on the pecans. Second, they were always too hard. So I baked them for just 2 to 2 and a half minutes at 300 degrees ... just until they were malable. Then I smoothed the caramels over the pecans with my fingers and let them cool. Third the chocolate was always too tacky, it just never firmed up. So I added one eighth of a bar of parafin to the chocolate and dropped a dollop on the caramel/pecans. They turned out perfect! I've made two batches this year so far ... one with dark chocolte chips and one with semi-sweet chocolate chips. They were both yummy! Hope this helps others who have had problems with turtles.
