Since the holidays are quickly approaching, all things sweets have been on my mind. From experimenting with new sweet recipes for the winter season to eating bressert (dessert for breakfast), I’ve been having my fair share of homemade (healthy) holiday treats. No shame included.🙅
Are desserts are your mind lately too? I think it’s just the time of year that has me dreaming of apple pie, Christmas cookies, chocolate,etc. I love making desserts for holiday parties, but I’m usually slaving in the kitchen for HOURS on end making 8 kinds of cupcakes, 11 types of cookies, 4 types of chocolate and 3 types of pie. Ok, total exaggeration here, but my point is, why take time spend hours in the kitchen when it can take you 3 minutes (plus chilling time) to make gourmet crowd-pleasing dessert? And bonus: it’s totally healthy.
Yes I’m talking about this eye-catching tiger-stripe Turtle Pecan Bark. Who doesn’t love pecans, caramel and chocolate together? So good.
The star of the show here is Georgia Grinders Pecan Butter, which creates the perfect base for this bark. It’s creamy, drippy and has a strong nutty taste. Did you ever try pecan butter? I hate to say this, but sorry peanut butter, you are now second.
Georgia Grinders is a nut butter company that is dedicated to creating high-quality, unique nut butters with simple and minimal ingredients. They also sent me their original almond butter, creamy cashew butter (you can use in these blondies) and pecan-peanut butter. All these jars deserve a big round of applause👏👏👏
Ok, now back to this bark! It’s mind-boggling to think that it’s vegan and paleo friendly and highly addictive. Only 5 ingredients are needed:
