Orange Meltaways and Caramel Pecan Clusters

In today’s Intro to Chocolate class we made Orange Meltaways and Caramel Pecan Clusters, or in other words, “Turtles”. YUM!

The Orange Meltaways are a simple chocolate treat, that just melt away in your mouth and have a interesting cooling sensation when they do. Therefore, although we made them with an orange flavour, any flavour, especially a minty or peppermint flavour would work fantastically well. We used only four ingredients to make the Orange Meltaways: dark (Lindt) chocolate, coconut oil, orange oil, and icing sugar for dusting. They were cut to a nice small size so that you can just “pop” them into your mouth. πŸ˜›

For the Caramel Pecan Clusters, we used 35% cream, sugar, corn syrup, honey, salt, butter, vanilla, whole toasted pecans, and milk chocolate. Now these Turtles were alot of work. But definitely well worth it! Yummy! πŸ˜‰
