These treats couldn't be simpler. Start with a nice, deep, dark chocolate cupcake, like these.
Cut out the center of the cake and fill with a super-simple, decadent turtle filling.
How simple? Just buy a jar of caramel ice cream topping and stir in lightly roasted, salted pecans.
About half of that bowl of filling ended up in my stomach. True story.
Top with a dark chocolate frosting-- I used this recipe, which is my go-to -- and drizzle more caramel and sprinkle pecans on top.
And it just keeps getting better...
Get on it!
