This recipe worked GREAT to make some home-made Turtle bars. It was just the right consistency. I buttered a glass pan, covered the bottom in pecans, poured the hot caramel over them, and then topped them with chocolate chips. The hot caramel melted the chips. I spread them out and let it cool. Wonderful!

I dipped these in chocolate. Delicious!<br/>I would recommend putting tin foil rather than butter in the bottom of the pan. I had to fight for awhile to get it out.

Im new to candy making, so I had hoped this would be easy but it wasn't as easy as I thought. Took forever. By themselves they are pretty plain. Wish I would have ready Sparkling's review so I could have made them as turtles.
