Salted Caramel & Pecan Turtles – 2 Ways

Salted Caramel and Pecan Turtles

Have you noticed? I looove options.

It all boils down to my decision making skills.

I’m not typically an indecisive person. Ok, maybe sometimes.

But when I know what I want, I am quick to make up my mind.

However, when I know what I want AND THEN I can think of 5 jillion different ways to make/decorate it…

YOU get options. I just limited myself to two.

Salted Caramel & Pecan Pretzel Turtles.


Salted Caramel & Pecan Turtles. Sans pretzels.

Your choice.  Or you can make both and be totally decisive, like I am.
