      This recipe rocks Kathy! I have received huge accolades from my husbands co-workers over these delicious turtles. The home made carmel makes a huge difference compaired to the quick recipes that call for melted caramels. This was fast to make and worth the effort. Next time, I will make them smaller though. Thanks so much! Tanya
