How To Make Turtle Dipped Marshmallows

This really isn’t a recipe but more of a layering of ingredients.

1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place marshmallows on parchment paper and stick one lollipop stick into top of each one.

2. Next you will melt your Kraft caramels in a bowl according to the directions on the bag and let cool slightly.

3. Cover each marshmallow in caramel and let harden on the parchment paper.

4. While the caramel is hardening on the marshmallows, melt the dark chocolate Wilton’s candy melts in a bowl according to package directions.

5. Dip each caramel marshmallow in chocolate.

6. Gently press or roll chopped pecans into the sides of the marshmallows before the chocolate hardens.

7. Set on parchment paper to harden.

May I suggest Toasting over an open fire first, then let cool.... Not oh boy the added flavor is complex.

These treats looked so delicious and beautiful, but I was unable to successfully make them. The caramel spread in a large pool around each marshmallow, unlike the ones in the photos. Also, I had only purchased one bag of Kraft caramels and found that it only covered 10 jumbo marshmallows. Please share your secret to getting neat treats.

I dip the marshmallow when caramel is just warm and not when it's hot right off the stove. I always let the caramel cool some before I dip. I have found that depending on the brand of marshmallows you buy some of the jumbo are larger than others, so one bag of caramels may not cover depending on size. Hope this helps!
