My turtle is a mold, filled with a shell of tempered chocolate, filled with caramel and pecans and topped with another layer of chocolate to seal in the inside "guts." Then with white chocolate with a little bit of red food coloring and a little of just white chocolate makes the little hats that make my turtles little "santa's."
To make the caramel, I used a can of sweetened condensed milk, removed the label, put it in a pot of water--make sure the can is completely covered with water at all times--and boil for 3 hours. Let it cool completely, open the can and you have great caramel!! Use 3 cans of this and you can make a caramel pie that is just like O'Charley's. Yum!!
Next, I have Coconut Joys. These are so simple to make!
1 stick of butter
2 Cups of powdered sugar
3 Cups of sweetened coconut
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Melt butter in a medium sized saucepan, remove from heat. Add the powdered sugar and coconut and mix until it is all combined well. Roll into balls and let set to "dry" for a few minutes. Melt the chocolate chips and drizzle over the tops of the coconut balls.
