Hi. I'm Kevin Wray from Peterbrook Chocolatiere here in Winter Park, Florida. Today, we're going to show you how to make a chocolate caramel candy turtle. These are fantastic. We only need three ingredients. We need some roasted pecan halves, we need some high quality caramel which we've already melted here. And you want to make a consistency where you can touch it with a gloved hand and it doesn't stick to you. You're going to work with this with our hands. So that's going to be the temperature range you're looking for. And then we need a cup of our tempered milk chocolate. And we'll get that here in a minute. To assemble our turtle it's really simple. We're going to go ahead and take one of our pecan halves and set it right in the center. Then we're going to take our caramel and roll it into a little ball and lay it right on top of our pecan halve. OK. Next we take another pecan halve and just break it in half with your fingers. And this is how we're going to make the legs for our turtle. I'm going to stick them in all corners here. And that's going to make the body of our turtle. And you know what we're going to give it a little head right there. All right. Now we're going to want to set this turtle aside for a few minutes to chill and set and then we'll be back and we'll add some chocolate. All right. Now that our caramel has chilled and set we can add the shell to our turtle. I'm going to use that tempered milk chocolate and we're just going to add a dollop on top. And just spread it around, make a nice little shell. All right. Now that we've got the shell on our turtle, we're going to place it back in the fridge and let that chocolate set up. And here's our finished turtle, almost to the T, almost.
