These Vegan Caramel Pecan Turtles are the best nutty, sweet, salty, rich, and chocolatey treat!

They’re made with a homemade vegan coconut milk caramel, roasted pecans and chocolate.

Best of all, these tasty turtles are easy to make, so you can whip up a batch whenever you need a sweet fix. ⁠


  1. *Refrigerate the can of coconut milk overnight and scoop out 2.5 tablespoons of the solid coconut cream that forms at the top.⁠
  2. First, let’s make the caramel sauce. Start by opening the can of coconut milk and scooping out the coconut cream.⁠
  3. Add it to a small pan over medium heat, along with the coconut sugar, vanilla, salt & cornstarch whisk everything together making sure to break up any clumps.⁠
  4. Refrigerate the caramel for a few minutes so it can cool off and solidify.⁠
  5. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. Do this in 30-second increments, taking it out to stir the chocolate in between. Repeat this until all of the chocolate has melted.⁠
  6. Line a tray with parchment paper.⁠
  7. Scoop out a small spoonful of melted chocolate & spread it in a small circle on the baking sheet.⁠
  8. Arrange five pecans in a circle on top of the chocolate.⁠
  9. Repeat this for all of the pecans. This recipe makes about 16 turtles, so you will use up about 80 pecans.⁠
  10. Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens, about 10 mins.⁠
  11. Next, pour a spoonful of caramel sauce on top of each turtle. Place them in the fridge for another 15-20 mins, until the caramel hardens.⁠
  12. Remove the turtles from the fridge & top them with another spoonful of chocolate. Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens.⁠
  13. Remove the turtles from the fridge, top with flakey salt & enjoy!⁠
