How do you say this: pee-can or puh cahn for pecan? I switch off depending on the sentence and when it comes to turtles I say puh-cahn, but if its a cookie like a pee-can sandy then thats the way it is. My friend Snugs, you might have seen her comment here and there, sent me some fresh pecans from her fathers tree in Texas and rather than munch on them mindlessly I decided to make turtles. I have never made turtles before but boy have I eaten my share, I used to gobble down two or three when no one was looking and then gently take one or two when offered like thats all I was having. How do you not like caramel, pecans and chocolate all intermingled.
Easy enough to make really, make caramel, put in pecans (you could arrange them like a turtle but whats the point) cover them in chocolate. Trays of caramel coated pecans waiting for their chocolate blankets.
Coated in rich dark chocolate and eager to be cooled off so that they can be handled - and these are so rich you cant slam two and then nibble on a third.
Unattractive piles of pecans, caramel and chocolate but who cares!
