I was just about to run to Holstens, the old fashioned candy store in town, to get my mom her favorite chocolates when I saw a tweet with the word “homemade.” That’s all it took for me to start making these sweet treats which I’m thrilled to report “are the best ever”. With only three ingredients I happened to have them all in my pantry and didn’t even need to go to the store. (Yeehaw for that!)
A layer of buttered pecans, Dulce de Leche and dark chocolate set in heart shape molds are topped with just a hint of sea salt for a sophisticated take on the classic chocolate caramel turtle.
This proves that an edible gift of something homemade can be quite easily done and at the same time pleases the recipient even more than a trip to a store. Not to mention it saves a good amount of money.
