Pinterest challenge: chocolate caramel and pecan turtle clusters

chocolate caramel and pecan turtle clustersI thought these mini sweat treats would be perfect for our house warming party, but never ended up making them. I eventually made them for a different reason, a serious need of chocolate fix! I found the recipe at Inspired Dreamer, but was quite disappointed with the missing instructions. It did not explain how to make the caramel! To be quite honest, I wanted a quick fix, so I was happy not to make any caramel, instead I used a shop bought. The only downside of that is that the shop bought caramel does not harden (unlike the homemade buttery caramel), therefore these clusters did not hold well (chocolate was holding everything). It was still very satisfying to eat, but if you made them with homemade caramel then they would be quite suitable to be wrapped like sweats or placed in the jar as a gift!chocolate caramel and pecan turtle clustersCHOCOLATE CARAMEL AND PECAN TURTLE CLUSTERS adopted from Inspired Dreamer
