If it was one thing my grandmother loved, it was her sweets. And running a close third only to Dairy Queen soft-serve vanilla ice cream and Tim Horton’s honey crullers were those legendary Turtles chocolates that also happen rank high on my candy hit list.
And so, in tribute to my nonna, this week’s cupcake creation is the Totally Turtle-rrific. A chocolate cupcake with a chocolate turtle centre, topped with caramel buttercream, melted chocolate and crushed pecans. This cupcake would have made her smile – and possibly given her diabetes, God rest her soul.
But a little chocolate in moderation never hurt anyone… whether it’s a quick break during a stressful workday or in celebration of a special occasion, this classic combo will having you singing “mmmmmmmmmm, I love Turtles” just as quick as your blood sugar level will spike after enjoying one.
