Chocolate Turtle Fudge

Hello everyone!

I have just 2 things to say today :

– I’m finishing my school paper in a couple of hours and then school is over for the Holidays 😀 So you can expect multiple Christmas baking posts for which I am totally late (because of the aforementioned school 😉 )

– This must be the best fudge ever. I didn’t know I liked Turtles that much, but I’m totally hooked!!! They must be even better with  homemade caramel, but knowing my skills in this area, I didn’t take the chance!

Yield about 48 pieces

  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 12 – 16 oz. caramels
  • 2 tablespoons water

  1. Line an 8×8 inch pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on both sides. Set aside.
  2. Place the caramels and water in a microwave safe bowl.
  3. On a double boiler, melt chocolate chips with sweetened condensed milk; add vanilla.
  4. When the fudge mixture is about to be ready (chocolate almost melted), place the bowl of caramels in the microwave and heat on high for a total of 3 minutes. Stir after each minute interval. Once melted, stir in pecans. Set aside.
  5. Pour half of the fudge into prepared pan. Spoon the caramel pecan mixture over the fudge. Spoon remaining fudge over the top (reheat if necessary). Chill in refrigerator until firm, about 2 hours.

    I made this and it was really good. I used a 14 oz bag of caramels since it said 12-16 oz, but next time I’ll use about 10 oz. The caramel was a little too thick in the middle (to me). I think a slight caramel center would more compliment the fudge.

  5. Do the pecans get mixed into the caramel or the chocolate? In your picture it looks like the pecans are in the chocolate, but in the directions it sounds like they are mixed in the caramel.

    • Hello kathy!

      The pecans are mixed in the caramel! Maybe when I cut the squares the pecan got mixed in the chocolate!

      Have a great day!

  6. I made these and they are soooo yummy, BUT after I cut them and put the squares in the fridge all the caramel leaked out. Any suggestions? Maybe I shouldn’t add water to my caramels?

    • Hi Shauna!

      Very glad you liked them! Mine leaked out a little too when they were out of the fridge, but not in. Yes, I would suggest to add less water to the caramel!
