Turtles....a secret recipe

Not these turtles.

Definitely not these turtles!
A few weeks ago I was in my favorite fabric shop in Berlin, Ohio, the Country Craft Cupboard.  As I'm getting all my pretty pieces of homespun and calico's cut I noticed a lovely dessert beside the cutting table.  Everything I crave was sitting right there....chocolate, caramel, nuts.  After asking around I found the kind lady who made it and begged for her recipe.  She gave it to me freely plus a nice big sample to taste!  What more could you ask for....fabric and sweets!!

I called it a secret because they are so simple to make.  Don't want to get the word out that I didn't slave over something this tasty to eat!   xo Jenn

Turtle Dessert
1-12oz. pkg. Nilla wafers
1 stick butter melted
1- 12oz. pkg. semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 c. chopped pecans
1-12oz. jar caramel topping ~ microwave 15 seconds

Place vanilla wafers in a ziploc bag; crush with rolling pin to fine crumbs. Stir together vanilla wafer crumbs and butter; press into bottom of a greased or sprayed 19 x 9 in. baking dish.

Sprinkle with morsels and pecans. Drizzle with caramel topping.

Bake at 350 for 12 - 15 min. Cool in pan on a wire rack. chill for 30 minutes. Cut in squares and serve.
