Homemade Chocolate Almond Turtles
Homemade Turtles easily made with almonds enveloped in sweet carmel and rich chocolate.
I love anything chocolate (minus white chocolate because I believe it is just a chocolate conspiracy). That being so, turtles are something of which I can eat 4 or 5 in a matter of seconds. This is the case with most anything chocolate for me.
During the Christmas and Holiday season however, turtles just seem to belong. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll eat them all year long as long as they are present. However, turtles just fit in with the holiday season and especially for Christmas.
Although candy making may seem like a daunting task, these are incredibly easy and have worked out great for our family and allow you to look like an amateur Willy Wonka of sorts to your friends.
The watered-down instructions for these turtles are to first make the caramel, and while making the caramel, cluster a few almonds together on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a non stick pad. Once the caramel is done, use a spatula to drip it over the almonds until they are mostly covered (the caramel will run, but don’t worry, once it cools you will be able to shape it to your liking). Melt the chocolate and place the hardened cluster in the melted chocolate coating the entire caramel. Remove and place back on sheet and refrigerate! That’s it!
After your family and loved ones polish these off this year, they’ll be left using the infamous words of Michael Scott, “WHERE ARE THE TURTLES!!!!!”.
