Faux-Turtles

February 21, 2014 1 min read

These are gluten free, vegan, and delicious. Plus, they are so incredibly easy and straight-forward that I actually followed the recipe this time! (If you’ve ever seen me bake, you will realize that this is a rarity). FauxTurtles5 Okay, the recipe actually calls for pecans, but since I seemed to have all the nuts in the world, I tried it out with almonds, peanuts, cashews, walnuts, and pecans. I have yet to try all of them, but I feel that I should for, ya know, literary exploration, journalistic integrity. Something like that. FauxTurtles1 Without further ado, here is the recipe: Ingredients -       200g dark chocolate (milk chocolate for those non-vegans out there if you like) -       1 lb of Medjool Dates -       1 cup pecans (or whatever nuts you want) Instructions
  1. Pit the dates (or be lazy like me and buy them pre-pitted), cut them lengthwise and squish them flat.
  2. Put in 3 pecans per date, for the head and feet of a turtle
  3. Chop up your chocolate and melt it, in a pot over medium heat (or in the microwave if you are lazy – warning, chocolate cooks weirdly in the microwave, you may end up burning it)
  4. Drizzle about a tsp of chocolate per cluster to seal the inside, so the dates don’t dry out
  5. Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes and voila – faux turtles.
