Chocolate-Covered Bacon Turtles
While chocolate turtles are practically a universally-loved sweet (except for those with nut allergies, perhaps), um, duh, bacon makes everything better! Who needs the holidays as an excuse to whip up these? I mean, it's gotta be someone's birthday...right?
This recipe yields 30 turtles, which sounds like a lot, but trust me, they go fast. The combination of flavors is incredible. First you get the crispy pecans, then the chewy caramel, then the rich dark chocolate, and finally the salty, meaty bacon. They will last for up to two weeks, stored between sheets of wax paper in an airtight container.
