Bacon Pecan Turtles

Delicious for Mom, Easy-to-make for the Whole Family


  • 8 oz. Pecan Halves
  • 8 oz. GODSHALL’S Turkey Bacon
  • 8 oz. Soft Caramel
  • 12 oz. Chocolate Drops and Disks (Dark or Milk)
  • 2 Tbsp Cream (Optional: used to soften caramel)


  1. Dice and lightly brown 8 slices of GODSHALL’S Turkey Bacon.
  2. Place clusters of five pecans on parchment paper Try to make the largest the head and then four smaller legs. There will be a small opening in the center.
  3. Melt the unwrapped caramels in the microwave for one minute. Open to stir every 20 seconds and remove early if melted before one minute- do not allow to “boil over”. If the caramel seems too stiff add up to 2 tbsp of cream or half and half.
  4. Spoon a scant tablespoon of melted caramel onto the center of each cluster.
  5. Place a heaping teaspoon of the diced bacon into the caramel and gently press in. Melt chocolate in a double broiler or candy melter.
  6. Using a Tablespoon, drop dollops of melted chocolate over the center of each pecan cluster spread gently to cover most of the caramel.
  7. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to set chocolate and caramel. These can be preserved up to four days in the refrigerator.
  8. ENJOY!
