Celebrate 2010 ... with CHOCOLATE!

Happy New Year!
March out the turtles for 2010!Since we're still polishing off our Happy Birthday Jesus chocolate cake from Christmas, I thought I'd make something a bit different for a New Year's Eve dessert ... like giant number chocolate turtles!
Melt one bag caramels with 2 Tbsp cream. Assemble nuts into number shapes on lightly buttered wax paper. For party variety I made each number a different nut - walnuts, pecans, cashews and almonds:
Once caramel is melted, let sit just a minute or two so it's not too runny. Carefully drizzle caramel over nuts. Let cool 1/2 hour. Spray a spatula with Pam & use it to transfer the turtles over to the party platter. Adjust as needed.
Melt some quality dark chocolate and give your giant number turtles their shells!
You could also use this idea for a special 'number' birthday or event. Or use letters to spell out a name!
Have a very blessed 2010!!

Chocolate is my kind of way to ring in the new year! :)

I was wanting to make candies like this but didn't think about melting the caramels with cream - good to know!
