I made caramel popcorn today and decided to take a bit of the caramel and make a treat for myself. And I came up with something yummy and fun. I listed the caramel I used but I think the caramel from the Lion House Recipe would be even better.....

1 cube butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup Karo Syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk
or anything else you think would taste good with caramel and chocolate!
In a saucepan, over medium heat, cook all ingredients, stirring constantly, until it reaches softball stage. Remove from heat. You can either use half of it for caramel corn or you can make a really BIG batch of turtles.
Have your desired nuts (or other filling) in a medium-sized bowl. I chose to use chopped almonds because that is what I had on hand. However you could use anything. Stir in amount of desired caramel to the consistency that you'd like. You don't want it overly gooey, but you want enough that it is caramel-y. Let set up for a bit so that it is easier to handle.
Once set up, make balls and set them on waxed paper. Chill in freezer for a few minutes while you melt the chocolate. I use the melting chocolate that is are the discs... not the big bars.
Remove balls from freezer and roll carefully in chocolate and set on waxed paper.
Let chocolate set up and then enjoy!!!
