Raw Vegan Chocolate Turtles

I came up with a shortcut homemade version that take you precisely 10 minutes.

Raw, Vegan, 3 Ingredients.

Raw Vegan Gluten-Free 3-Ingredient, 10-Minute Chocolate “Turtles”
1/3 c pecans (walnuts will do in a pinch)

1/2 c melted chocolate (i.e. 2 Full-Size Squares of Melted Baker’s Brand Chocolate because it’s dairy-free, or melt 1/2 c Chocolate Chips, or a Cocoa Powder/Agave/Coconut Oil Mix)

1/8 to 1/4 c agave + pinch of salt.  Freeze this mixture to create your raw vegan caramel sauce.  Or, use your favorite Caramel Sauce or Caramel Ice Cream Topping

MY OTHER RECIPES

Yields: 4 Turtles.  Intentionally a very small recipe, feel free to mass-produce.

Directions:
First, melt your chocolate (Raw Foodies, use whatever ratios of raw cocoa powder, agave, & coconut oil suits you to keep it raw).  I use the 45 seconds in the microwave trick and melted about 1/4 c worth, which is 1 Baker’s Chocolate Full-Sized Square. (You’ll melt the other square later).

Take the 1/3 c pecans & Divide into 4 Piles on parchment paper or wax paper for easy removal & Pour the melted Chocolate over the Nut Piles.  Try to distribute it evenly.

Next, Pour the Caramel Sauce of your choice over the Chocolate-ized Nut Piles

I love Caramel so I was not shy about going heavy-handed.

Pour Chocolate over the Top.  I melted up 1 more square now.

Transfer to the Freezer or Fridge to allow for hardening.

In a half hour or less, look at how chilly & yummy that Vegan Turtle looks!

  1. Hi Loveeeeeeeeeeee
    These recap posts are neat- I really enjoy being reminded of all your wonderfulness!!!!!!!

    Vegan slaw dressing is something I obviously need to make soon.

    I really need to put my chia seeds to use soon as well.

    I loveeee stores like TJ Maxx and Forever 21. Yes it is overwhelming, but I find amazing deals always!

    HAVE A WONDERFUL SUNDAY MAMAAAAAAAAAAAA

  2. Darn it! So close and yet so far : ( I LOVE being in group yoga classes too so I feel for you.

    That is NOT how you break in a coffee maker ; ) Glad you were able to salvage one cup. It sounds delicious!

    Okay, so I got the almond butter ready to go and I'm on this darned cleanse! The stars are not aligning for me to have some of those chocolate almond butter cups : (

    You know what's sad? I take my kids to the Rack for clothes and I get mine at Old Navy. What's up with that?!? It's easier to shop for them there than it is for myself. I get my real deals at the grocery stores. If I don't save at least 50% I feel like I've failed. Oh well, I'll have my day : )

  3. I am a thrift whoreeee. In fact, I've never set foot in to a nordtroms ever, and dared to enter a bloomingdales but once and almost died. I am a slave to TJmaxx and Marshalls and have been known to venture in to goodwill in pursuit of hidden gems.

    So sorry to hear about your stressful morning, madaam! Hopefully that java (oh my god!) salvaged the day.. sans the grit.

    p.s. I will pay you to open up your own coffee and baked goods shop and wear that apron. Something to think about ;)

  4. I'm terrible in department stores. I get so overwhelmed!!

  5. ohhh everything looks so good! chia seeds seriously freak me out when they are upclose! haha…but they taste so good I could eat them all day long!

    ahh I cannot believe this happened with the coffee!! at least you salvaged one cup and boy does it sound delicious!

    tiffany's?? saawwweettt tell him to read this post hint hint…

    I hope to get some bloomingdales/lululemon goodies!

  6. I just emailed your blog to five of my clients so they can try some of your raw vegan desserts…

  7. I am definitely going to have to get some of that gingerbread coffee! I don't have a drip coffee maket, but maybe I can force it to work in my French press? ;-)

  8. hello gorgeous. sorry about the calamities you ran into! i need to make your PB cups~i have been reading around the 'sphere how incredible they are. not that i would expect any less!

    as far as rack shopping goes, if i have the time to do it i actually find it relaxing to sort through all the stuff :)

    off to catch up on some other great posts by you :)

  9. In my opinion it is a good point of view. Thank you.

  16. You can also make raw veg caramel sauce by blending medjool dates in a food processor until it resembles caramel. It makes an amazing dipping sauce for apples and I bet it would be awesome for making these turtles!
