I have always been a fan of turtles. The chocolate…the caramel…the pecans! Such a great combination!
While I’m not opposed to making some good, real food caramel, I do love making things that are naturally sweetened and with a different twist. That’s where these Turtle Bites come in.
I know some people will question the tastiness of this recipe based on the ingredients, I want to encourage you to give it a try. ;-) I know I have a few family & friends who swear dates are the grossest and won’t touch them. While I do love eating dates straight up (a great pre-run fuel!), once mixed with the nut butter, they become a delicious, caramel like sweet treat. Give them a try and let me know what you think. I can’t stop eating them!
