These turtles can be kept at room temperature, but the chocolate and date may soften and become sticky, so refrigerate to keep them at their best!
Serves: 15 ~ Prep timeTotal time
3½ oz dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa, preferably unsweetened or with unrefined sweetener)
½ cup pitted dates
2 oz pecan  or walnut halves

Process dates in a food processor until they become a sticky and very thick jam-like consistency.  Roll the processed dates into 15 small balls, place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Press 3 pecan halves into the date balls.

Heat a small saucepan over low heat, add in dark chocolate and slowly melt into a sauce.

Pour a small amount of sauce over each date/pecan ball.  Place in the fridge to set for at least 10 minutes – the chocolate will harden and hold everything together. Enjoy!
