On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… two turtle doves two turtle loves.
Let’s be honest, the only kind of turtle we care about here at Mouth HQ are the turtles of the chocolate caramel variety. And this fall-inspired take on the classic chocolate turtle, Pumpkin Caramel Turtles, might be the best we’ve tried yet.
Veruca Chocolates basically took a slice of pumpkin pie straight from our holiday buffet and stuffed it into a creamy chocolate shell. It gets some crunch from roasted pumpkin seeds and a gooey lusciousness thanks to pie spice infused caramel. Each turtle, redolent with the comforting scent of warm cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger, is hand-painted with a streak of bright orange and gold Turtle-y tasty!
And hey, maybe it’ll help bring your turtle love out of her shell.
So, to recap...
On the second day of Indie Christmas, my small-batch maker gave to me:
Two Turtle Loves
And Our Indie Cocktail Made With Pear (whee!)
10 more days to go. Check back tomorrow to see what the third day of Christmas has in store…
