HOME MADE CARAMELS

I made candies & cookies & small loaves of flavored breads for Christmas boxes & gave them away. I always made what I call Turtle Eggs & this is the caramel I used in them.
Turtle Eggs are turtles that I chop the pecans up in & form them in a Tupperware deviled egg container to look like eggs.
