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

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

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.

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

  1. 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!
