I’m a person that has to have a little sweet treat here and there. This isn’t shocking news to anyone who is familiar with my website but I know a lot of you can relate.

My main goal is always feeling vibrant, fresh, full of energy and centered. Part of creating that for me is feeling lean and fit. This is why I don’t indulge in packaged foods, chemicals or any products.

This is what works for me.

But I also love treats. So, this is why you see me creating goodies all the time. I call it “my inner fat kid” lol. It’s a joke.

One of my favorite treats that is super easy to make is my Vegan Salted Chocolate Caramel Pecan Turtles. I love making these little bites because I can have a container of them in my freezer and grab a couple of them when it is time to have a treat.

They are perfect for your sweets cravings, special events and holidays.

This week when I created my Vegan Salted Chocolate Caramel Pecan Turtles I used zero stevia and no maple syrup and they still turned out delicious.

You can find the recipe linked below along with some of my other favorite dupes and sweet treat bites.

Vegan Salted Chocolate Caramel Pecan Turtles

Vegan Salted Chocolate Caramel Pecan Turtles


Prep Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 10 Turtles


    Chocolate Ingredients:
  • 1/2 Cup Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 3 Tbsp Natural Cocoa Powder
  • 1/8 Cup Pure Maple Syrup
  • Caramel Ingredients:
  • 10 Soft (Fresh and Pitted) Medjool Dates
  • 1 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Tsp Fine Sea Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Natural Pure Almond Butter
  • 10 Drops Liquid Stevia
  • 30 Pecans


  1. Place all caramel ingredients (except the pecans) into your food processor and blend until smooth stopping to scrape down the sides (keep blending and scraping until the mixture is smooth and dough-like).
  2. Line a bowl with saran wrap and scrape caramel dough into it.
  3. Place in the freezer or refrigerator for 2-3 hours.
  4. Roll caramel dough into two inch balls and press down to flatten.
  5. Press in 3 pecans to each flattened ball of caramel.
  6. Place on baking cooling rack and back in the freezer for 30 minutes (the baking cooling rack is just to use for when we drizzle the chocolate the excess will fall through on to plastic wrap and will not be wasted).
  7. Place all chocolate ingredients into your food processor and blend until smooth.
  8. Remove flattened caramels from the freezer.
  9. Place plastic wrap underneath the cooling rack.
  10. Using a spoon cover each caramel with chocolate evenly using the back of the spoon to cover the sides and to smooth out the top of each caramel. Let each chocolate set for a few moments before moving.
  11. Enjoy or carefully place in a parchment lined container and store in the freezer.
  12. Enjoy these treats straight from the freezer for best consistency.
