After I posted about my hostess gifts I had several people ask me for the recipe for the turtles.

They are REALLY yummy so I wouldn't dream of keeping the recipe from you. It actually came from my mom's friend Dianne. She and my mom have made lots of these for different occassions.


1 bag caramels

1 stick butter

3 cups pecans, chopped

1 large Hershey bar (the big ones not the normal candy bar size)

1/4 stick paraffin

Melt butter, add caramels and melt. Stir in pecans. Drop by teaspoon on waxed paper. Cool. Melt Hershey bar and parraffin on top of stove or in microwave. Dip candy into chocolate. Cool.

These are great made ahead of time and then frozen. I hope you enjoy!

From a health perspective, I would not recommend ingesting paraffin and can't imagine it would be necessary for the recipe.

Those look awesome. Do you know where the boxes came from? These would be perfect to do for my hostess gifts, but I'm not sure about the packaging. Do you know where I can get the boxes?
