   24                    Soft caramels
    2       tb           Frozen whipped topping
   72                    Pecan halves
      2/3   c            Semisweet chocolate chips
 
   1.  Combine caramels and whipped topping and heat over hot water, stirring
       until mixture has belted and it is smooth and well blended.  Let cool
       slightly.
   2.  Place pecan halves on a lightly greased cookie sheet in groups of 3,
       arranged such that one pecan half is in the position of a turtle’s
       head while the other 2 pecan halves are in the position of the
       turtle’s legs on each side.
   3.  Carefully spoon the melted caramels over each group of 3 pecan halves,
       leaving the ends of the pecan halves showing.  Let sit until hard.
   4.  Melt chocolate chips over hot water, stirring until smooth.  Let cool
       slightly.
   5.  Spoon melted chocolate over caramel topping on pecan halves, taking
       care not to cover the pecan heads and legs of the turtles.  Let sit
       until hard.
