Turtle Cups

I am such a sucker for all things sweet & salty! Chocolate & nuts of any kind is just my perfect treat! I love that “Turtle” combo & you see them everywhere at this time of year! So I have been so excited to make my own this Christmas season.

Step 1: 

Date Caramel

  1. Soak 1 cup of dates in warm water for 6-8 hours.
  2. Once soft, drain water & place the dates in a food processor.
  3. Add 1 tbs coconut oil + 3 tbs oat milk + 1 tsp vanilla + sea salt.
  4. Blend, stopping to scrape the sides, until smooth.
  5. Add 1 tbs of oat milk at a time if needed or until you reach desired consistency.

 

Step 2: 

Turtle Cups

  1. In a saucepan, melt 1 cup of chocolate. My favourite combo is 1/2 80% Camino dark bar + 1/2 Enjoy Life mini chips.
  2. Line a muffin pan (I chose mini pan!) & scoop approximately 1/2 tsp of chocolate into bottom of liners. You want the bottom to be covered in a thin layer.
  3. Drop a couple small pieces of pecans + a small scoop of date caramel into the middle of the chocolate.
  4. Cover or fill remainder of the cup with chocolate. Top with course sea salt if desired!
  5. Allow to harder in fridge or freezer.

Enjoy Friends!
