The Pastry Chef's Baking
I found this recipe on Godiva.com years and years ago. It's no longer on their site as they refresh and rotate recipes around. I'm glad I snagged this when I did. I suppose you could call this a turtle shortbread since it has all the key turtle elements: nuts, caramel, and chocolate.
Actually, I've been on a turtle kick lately (the confection, not the sea creature) as you'll see with this shortbread and (upcoming) turtle cookies and turtle cake. Coincidence, I assure you, or simply my love of caramel and chocolate together.
Now I did change the recipe to make it more turtle confection-like because the original recipe called for baking this as a round shortbread, filling it with the pecan filling, baking it, then covering with ganache, and piping white chocolate decoratively on top. I even remember the original picture of this from long ago where it looked very pretty and professional.
