Turtle Candies - from allrecipes.com
4 ounces pecan halves
24 individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
1 teaspoon shortening
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Cover cookies sheet with aluminum foil, shiny side exposed. Lightly grease foil with vegetable oil spray. (I used my Exopat baking sheet liner, and it worked so well!)
Place 3 pecan halves in a Y shape on the foil. Place 1 caramel candy in the center of each Y. Bake just until caramel is melted, about 9 to 10 minutes.
Heat shortening and chocolate chips over low heat just until chocolate is melted. Spread over candies and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
