Jonesing for a last minute chocolate treat? Look no further than these Dark Chocolate Sriracha Turtles!
Disclosure: I was compensated for my time by the brands represented within this post and on air to promote Simple Swaps for Valentines Day. Rest assured, I love these products and include them in my diet too!
Turtles are Mr. CEO’s favorite candy, hands down. It’s a running joke when he gets his special Grahams turtles that they will be stolen from him. Not by me, but by this critter that likes to come by and pick off all the nuts hanging loose.
Anyone else have that same critter in their house? Maybe it goes by the name of the “cake cutter”… those outer edges have to be straight, right?!
Well, if I lost some of you that’s a good thing. It just means you have self control, or more than I do!
Anyways, back to these Dark Chocolate Sriracha Turtles. They actually came to fruition after I was gifted the sweetest present from Emerald Nuts, an entire case of their new flavors! What a treat to come home to after teaching night class. I started eating these in my daily dose of popcorn, finding them to be the perfect spicy kick I needed to add a little crunch to my snack time mix.
Then I bought some dark chocolate and the rest is history!
These Dark Chocolate Sriracha Turtles came to life and won over not only the heart of Mr. CEO, but also the lovely people of Emerald Nuts. They liked the recipe concept so much they partnered with me on this post and decided to have me showcase the recipe on my Shaw’s Simple Swaps Valentine’s Day segment today on the CW 6 San Diego 6AM hour.
