15 Minute Turtles

Need something quick to serve or take to a holiday dinner? Dread the thought of baking?Make these 15 minute turtles.

You would think that someone who spent most of her life in restaurants and bakeries would always want to prepare something extravagant and complicated. But the truth is, there are times when I don’t want to walk in to my kitchen, let alone, spend hours on my feet, creating desserts.

However, as you know, being gluten free makes things a little more complicated.

And I have to admit, I can be my own worst enemy. I hate paying for something I know that I can make at home, that will be delicious, beautiful and cost me a fraction. So there is my problem. Make it or buy it?

And that’s why these little turtles are so amazing. A handful of ingredients and fifteen minutes is all you need to make candies that will impress everyone.

You can customize them to your liking. Use milk, dark or white chocolate, salt or no salt, pecans or cashews. It is completely up to you.

Put your 15 Minute Turtles into paper cups in a beautiful holiday container for a gorgeous presentation.
