Speaking of turtles, here's a kid-friendly recipe for the pecan cluster TURTLES that I make with my kids.
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Lay two pecan halves side-by-side, flat-size down to make turtle clusters on a cookie sheet. Unwrap the caramels and place one on top of each pecan cluster. Place in warmed oven for 4 or 5 minutes to slightly soften the caramels. While caramels are softening, put chocolate into bowl for melting, adding a few slivers of wax to thin it out a bit if desired. Melt chocolate on high in the microwave for one and a half minutes, stirring after the first minute so it doesn't burn. Dip the pecan clusters into the chocolate and let them dry on a piece of aluminum foil before enjoying these turtlelicious treats! (Yield: 4 dozen)
