On a greased baking sheet, arrange pecans in clusters of 3 halves about 2 inches apart. Top each cluster of pecans with a slightly flattened caramel. Bake at 300&de;g for 6 to 8 minutes, or until caramels soften. Remove to waxed paper. Flatten caramels with a spatula. While caramels are still warm, top each with a section of chocolate. Spread chocolate a bit when it melts. Refrigerate turtles for a few minutes to harden candies.
