Turtle Candy Recipe | a super easy idea from NellieBellie

Brilliance has to be shared. It would be wrong and unethical on so many levels to keep a crazy awesome candy recipe like this one to myself. Especially a candy recipe involving chocolate. All chocolate recipes belong to the world at large. For world peace. Truly, world peace and the world’s chocolate supply are inter-woven. Ask any mother, anywhere.

Back to the Turtle candy recipe…

 This is another microwave candy recipe that is so easy you won’t believe it. I’m a believer in homemade, all-natural, and whole foods. Big believer! But candy and sweets that will never meet those requirements in the first place might as well be easy. Why spend forever making treats that are bad for you anyways? Why not make them quickly? Especially when they still taste…a-may-zing!!

So that’s why this 3 ingredient recipe made its way into our recipe box.  We even use fair trade chocolate most of the time, we buy a few chocolate bars and chop them up instead of using chips.  You could do the same, and even find organic nuts if you wanted to.  

easy candy recipes include these homemade turtle candy! This recipe only uses 3 ingredients and takes only 10 minutes!

Now you have delicious Turtle Candy to add to your Christmas Candy recipes! And no one has to know they are super easy! That will be our little secret.  You just make up a batch or two, package them up, and gift them to people you like.  Or you could save them all for yourself.  Or, if you’re super smart, you’ll make extra for yourself and gift the rest.  You get the idea.

    You don’t melt the caramels?

    1. the Bellie says:

      Nope; they just kinda melt on their own as part of the process!

        what kind of carmels did you use?

        1. the Bellie says:

          We used caramel pieces, like you can find in the baking section.

  2. Jordan says:

    How did you get these out of the pan? Mine are stuck :)

    1. Oh no oh no oh no!!! That spraying the cupcake pan I better go bold and highlight and capitalize :). I would try warming them a bit and then take them out immediately. Good luck!! Or just eat them out of the pan…yum!

  3. Droooool….those look amazing!
