Get The Most Out of Turtle Desserts With These Yummy Ideas!


Mostly everyone knows by now what a turtle exactly is: It’s a confection that is made with pecans topped with caramel and dipped in chocolate with a shape that resembles a turtle; The candy was developed and made its debut in 1918 by Johnson’s Candy Company, which would later become DeMet’s Candy Company. They were born after a salesman came into the commissary’s dipping room and showed a candy to one of the dippers, who pointed out that the candy looked like a turtle…
A little over 100 years after the candy’s debut, Turtles are sold in all shapes, sizes, and recipes, but there happens to be only one original, and they happen to be produced by candy dippers on a rectangular marble ‘board’, which is similar in size to a contemporary kitchen cutting board. The original confection consists of pecans, caramel, and various chocolates; Not only that, they happen to be a multi-task confection, which requires several sittings.
