Pretzel Turtles
I made over 300 of these today for a large party. Today was the first time I had ever made these turtles. I used Dove chocolates filled with caramel. My suggestions for 1st timers: 1) Remove candies from wrappers a day or two before actually making the turtles. 2) Toast pecans the day before also...don't skip this step...they taste so much better when the pecans are pre-toasted. 3) I tested different oven temps. and found 275 degrees at 3 minutes to be the best. 4) Place pecan on top of chocolate piece BEFORE placing in oven. This way, when removed from heat, all you need to do is press down gently on each pecan. 5) Be prepared to store these in a cool/cold garage-type area after making. This is how they store best until consumed. 6) If making in a hot/humid climate, you will need to refrigerate these to "set" and then keep them in refrigerator....otherwise, they will be too messy. These turned out to be more expensive than I had originally planned. Also, very labor intensive since I had to make so many and had no help. Still, they are quite good to eat. If you use Dove dark chocolate caramel or Dove chocolate with peanut butter, less time will be needed in the oven......about 2 minutes.
