Devlish treats

Posted in Dessert, Food & Recipes by nicolejanaye on January 15, 2011

I made these devilish creatures about two months ago and apparently I forgot to share them with you guys. How rude.

But seriously, these treats are deadly. Yes, it is a dessert but made a little bit healthier. I’ve had a few guinea pigs do some taste testing and they were giving a thumbs up, 5 stars and saliva may or may not have been dripping from their mouths. Either way, you must make these.

It’s my take on the classic turtle. I hope my pictures have progressed from two months ago. So I appologize for the bland, too dark, and un-attractive photos, but I promise these suckers are devine!


  • Halved pecans
  • Agave Nectar
  • Smart Balance ‘Butter’
  • Dark Chocolate Chips
  • Coconut shreds
  • Brown Sugar
  • Kosher Salt


  1. First off you want to start with your pecan layer. For each turtle, you want to take 4 halved pecans and point the tips towards each other.
  2. In a small pot, add a couple tablespoons of agave nectar, a little bit of brown sugar and just the slightest amount of smart balance. Let meld in the pot until liquid golden.
  3. Drizzle your agave caramel on top of the pecan halves.
  4. Sprinkle with coconut.
  5. In a small pot, melt your dark chocolate with a teaspoon of smart balance. Once creamy and liquidy, pour mixture on top of your turtles.
  6. Top with another layer of shredded coconut and one more of melted chocolate.
  7. Sprinkle with a dusting of kosher salt.
  8. Stick in the freezer and let harden for 1 hour. If you can’t wait, 30 minutes will do.
  9. Now, stuff your faces!
