A Simple Christmas : Simple Recipes

I usually like to try a few new recipes each holiday.  Sometimes it's something sweet, and sometimes something savory.  This year it seems to be sweet stuff.

I actually made a version of this last year, but I thought it was more complicated than it needed to be, so I simplified it this year, and I love them!
Mock Turtles
Milk Chocolate Chips - 1 bag
Caramel candies - 1 bag
Pecan halves
Sea salt

Place paper candy cups on a cookie sheet (I made 24).    Unwrap and flatten the caramel candies with your hands (dip your fingers in water to keep them from sticking) so they are about the size of the candy cups. Melt the chocolate chips in a small saucepan on low heat, stirring frequently.  Drop melted chocolate into candy cups to form bottom layer.  Place caramels on top of chocolate and top with a pecan half.  Top with remaining chocolate and sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt.  Refrigerate for about 10-15 to harden chocolate.

(Mine look similiar to the ones shown above, but we had a power outage yesterday, so no pictures of mine:)

Try not to eat all of them.
