This cake pop tutorial is courtesy of our contributor Deanna of Dee’s-licious Desserts…With Father’s Day right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to put a cake pop spin on one of my husbands favorite treats. When it comes to pecans, caramel, and chocolate my husband cannot resist. So here it is, a Turtle Turtle Cake Pops (yep, a turtle shaped cake pop that tastes just like the turtle chocolates) tutorial just in time for Father’s Day!
Turtle Turtle Cake Pops – Supplies:
- chocolate cake pop dough
- melted milk chocolate
- caramel squares
- cake pop sticks
- cake pop stand
- wax paper
First, roll out your cake pops then take a knife and slice off the bottom so the cake pop is more dome shaped. Using that extra dough you chopped off, roll it into a small ball.
Dip your stick into melted chocolate and then into the flat portion of your cake pop. Once that sets, secure the small ball onto the cake pop with more chocolate. This should start to resemble a turtle!
Next, take your pecans and carefully cut off the top. You’ll need 4 for each of the turtle’s legs plus a small piece for his tail.
Dip your entire turtle into the chocolate. Let the chocolate harden.
Dip the end of the pecan where you cut into the chocolate, then secure it on the turtle. Repeat for each leg and tail.
Take one of your caramel squares and pop it into the microwave for about 10 seconds, then roll it out into a large flat circle. You may have to return it to the microwave a few times to get the desired size and shape.
Place the caramel (while still warm) onto the turtle and form it into a shell.
There you have it! A Turtle Turtle Cake Pop – almost too cute to eat.
