Bea's Story

Chocolate, caramel and nuts...that's what I'm talking about! These will melt in you mouth. These are a little time consuming but well worth the effort.

I like these better than turtles because the caramel doesn't stick to your teeth. I think it's because the caramel is mixed with the sweetened condensed milk. It's so creamy inside the chocolate and it's hard to quit eating them.

WARNING: very addictive!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Better than turtles? We think so! Try these for your next bake sale or party - They'll be gone in a flash!


14 oz
bag of caramels
1 can(s)
sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
3 c
pecans, coursely chopped
24 oz
pkg chocolate almond bark candy coating

Directions Step-By-Step

Slowly melt caramels and milk together in medium size saucepan. Add chopped pecans and mix well. Remove from heat and let mixture cool for about 30 minutes to an hour. This way they'll hold their shape better.
Meanwhile, line two large cookie sheets with foil and lightly grease with cooking spray. Drop clusters by using a tablespoon onto prepared cookie sheets. Place in refrigerator or freezer for a few hours to firm them up. I sometimes leave them in the freezer overnight but a couple of hours or so works great, too.
Slowly melt the chocolate bark & dip each cluster into chocolate, covering all sides. Place onto waxed paper and let harden. TIP: only take out one cookie sheet at a time from the fridge/freezer because they soften quickly.
Note: I use the chocolate almond bark from Wal-Mart. I melt the whole package and once I have covered all the millionaires I then chocolate cover pecans, peanuts, raisins or peanut butter between crackers to use up all the chocolate.
TIP: These freeze very well. You can even eat them right from the freezer with no thawing. Also, I use a half package each of the white and dark chocolate. This gives it a milk chocolate taste that I love.
ALMOND BARK: Most Walmarts carry this item. You can normally find it in the baking aisle along with chocolate chips, etc. Some grocery stores and Walgreens also carry it. It comes in white chocolate as well. I have never made this candy using the white chocolate but I'm sure it would be wonderful.

    How do you hold the clusters when you dip them into the chocolate? These are my favorite candies and I definitely want to make some! Thanks for the post!

    PAULA...I use kitchen tongs but some people use two forks. It can be a bear b/c they want to slide out of the tongs but you'll get the hang of it and it's worth all the effort.
    COLLEEN: tell us what you use to dip them in...I gotta know if there's an easier way. I do know that Pampered Chef sells a chocolate dipping tool.
