Turtle Fudge / Cassies Way

Cassie *


This fudge was an experiment, and boy did it ever turn out wonderful. The base of the fudge is the same as my creamy Pennsylvania fudge with a yummy caramel/pecan center.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we have...it's a yummy one.

How to Make Turtle Fudge / Cassies Way


  1. Prepare a 9 x 13 dish with butter. I lined mine with foil for easy removal and cutting into pieces.
  2. Prepare your caramel center first.

    Place caramels in a microwave safe bowl, along with the water. Microwave in 30 second intervals, until smooth when whisked.
  3. Add the pecans, set aside.
  4. In a large sauce pan; add the butter, milk and sugar. Over medium high heat, bring to full rolling boil, stirring constantly. (It should remain boiling as you stir.) Set your timer for 5 minutes after boiling begins. Stir continuously.

    Remove from heat and stir in the marshmallow cream, Hershey's chocolate bars and chocolate chips.

    Check caramel and make sure it's still pourable. If has thickened up, stick it back into the microwave for a few seconds to loosen it back up.
  5. Now, pour half of the fudge into the prepared pan. ( try to do this as quickly as possible. Spread evenly.
  6. Next, pour the pecan/caramel mixture onto the fudge and spread evenly, keeping about 1/2 an inch from edges.
  7. Now, spoon remaining fudge on top of the caramel and spread evenly. I used a metal offset knife.
  8. I then pressed about 1/2 cup of pecans into the top of the fudge. Optional
  9. Chill for at least 2 hours. Cut into pieces, and enjoy!
