An Army of Vegan Turtles

Posted by trktos on 5-December-2010

Last night, I tried this recipe for caramel. It turned out really well. This morning, I toasted some pecans, melted some of the caramel, melted some vegan chocolate chips and made turtles.

Caramel (from this post):

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegan margarine
  • 2 cups ‘milk (I used plain, unsweetened soymilk)
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Instructions:

  1. Grease an 8*8 pan and line with parchment.
  2. Combine all ingredients except vanilla in 4+ quart pot. (I used a 4 quart and it just was big enough.)
  3. Heat, stirring frequently, until candy reaches 245 degrees F.
  4. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla.
  5. Pour into prepared pan.
  6. Once cool, you can use in other recipes or cut into bite-sized pieces. Be sure to wrap them, though – this caramel glues itself to pretty much everything it touches, except cling wrap and parchment paper.
