Ingredients

  • 35 waffle pretzels
  • 11 ounces Kraft caramels
  • 10 ounces Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses
  • 35 pecans
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Lay a waffle pretzel (or other small shaped pretzel) down on a baking pan. Unwrap a Kraft Caramel and place it on top of the pretzel.
  • Place the pan into an oven that has been warmed to 350 degrees and bake them for 4 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and immediately press a Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kiss into the caramel. Place these back into the oven for just 1 minute.
  • Take the pan back out of the oven and place a pecan on top of each of the pumpkin spice kisses.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt 1/2 a cup of chocolate chips. Using a spoon, drizzle the chocolate over your turtles.
  • Before you store these, you'll want to let the chocolate harden completely. Speed up that process by placing the baking pan in the freezer or refrigerator until the chocolate has set, then store them in an airtight container.

Notes

There are about 35 caramels in one 11 oz bag of Kraft caramels. If you only make 35 truffles, you'll have about 1/2 a bag of Hershey Kisses leftover.
