Dark Chocolate Turtles

Nothing like easy to make homemade chocolates...


Makes approximately 20 chocolates


2 cups dark chocolate chips (at least 60% cacao)

20 pecan halves (toasted in maple syrup)

10 pitted dried dates (halved lengthwise)

Flakes sea salt for sprinkling


1. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate, stirring every 20 seconds until smooth.

2. Place a teaspoon size drop of melted chocolate on a parchment lined baking sheet.

3. Top with 1 pecan & 1 date half, then top with another spoonful of chocolate.

4. Repeat with the remaining chocolate, pecans & dates.

5. Sprinkle with flaked salt & freeze until firm (about 10 minutes).

6. Enjoy!


* To toast pecans, spread them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper after drizzling them in maple syrup. Toast at 400 degrees until slightly browned (5 to 6 minutes). Remove & let cool.
