DIY Chocolate Caramel Walnut Turtles

The only thing better than chocolate or caramel separately is chocolate and caramel together. These decadent turtles combine chewy caramel, rich chocolate, and salty walnuts.

These special chocolates are great for holiday parties or gift giving.

Homemade Turtle Recipe

  • Soft caramel candies (Homemade are awesome, but store bought should work too) (one for each turtle you want to make)
  • Walnut halves or quarters (5-6 for each turtle you want to make)
  • Chocolate to melt and spread over the top
  1. Take a 1 inch caramel and knead it slightly (with clean fingers of course) until soft.
  2. Place 4 pieces of walnuts for legs, 1 for the head, and 1 small piece for a tail if desired.
  3. Place on a plate or cookie sheet, caramel side up. Allow to harden slightly.
  4. Melt chocolate and spread a small amount over the top of the caramel.
  5. Allow to harden before stacking or serving.
  6. Store in an airtight container. Freeze for longer storage (if you can keep them that long).
Want even more chocolatey, caramel goodness?
