Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
16 ounces whole raw pecans (reserve 1/2 cup for garnish)
24 ounces chocolate flavored candy coating (almond bark or candiquik)
2 ounces (1/2 bar) German chocolate bar (by Baker's)
1 (11-ounce) bag caramel bits
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:
Directions:
Layer pecans, then candy coating, then chocolate bar into crockpot (I used a 5 quart). Cover. Cook for 1 hour on low temperature. Do not stir.

After 1 hour stir mixture and continue to cook, stirring every 15-20 minutes for another hour (a total of 2 hours). Once mixture has completely come together, stir in caramel bits and turn off the heat. Cover for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile line counter top or table with a long piece of parchment paper.

Stir. Use 2 table spoons to scoop out candy from crockpot and scoop it onto parchment paper. Make sure candy is not touching.

Meanwhile, melt 2 cups chocolate chips and chop 1/2 cup pecans. Drizzle over turtles and garnish with chopped pecans.

Allow to set completely.

NOTES: You can double the recipe, but the caramels will start to get a little gritty in the candy if not scooped out quickly enough. So, be careful. The photos above are from a double batch that I made, the video is a single batch. Scoop fast.
