These tasty pecan caramel clusters are the ideal recipe for home-made sweets, suitable for Christmas or Valentine’s Day. If you like homemade turtles, you’ll love to have a special treat with this chewy pecan caramel candy dipped in chocolate. I wanted to make Pecan Carmel Clusters because the aromas of chewy homemade caramel, chopped pecans, and heavenly chocolate all combined into one blissful candy are just a heavenly bite here on earth.
The first time I had this Pecan Carmel Clusters was during a Halloween Party for my niece. I went to the kitchen to help with the preparation and saw my sister making this dessert. It was wonderful and so elegant that I had a taste test. It was so funny because I almost ate half of what should be served that my sister pats me and told me to stop eating before I could finish it all. Children will love this, and for sure adults too.
