All-Purpose Caramel + Caramel Turtle Cups

I really have no words for these little cups of joy… except that they’ll be popping up all summer in all sorts of ways! Gooey caramel that is free of refined sugar (and I even used lighter coconut milk) + chocolate & pecans = heaven. I made these in my mini chocolate mold and we couldn’t resist popping into the fridge on a regular basis to grab one. 

Did I mention there is no baking involved? These have been awesome during my recent move/kitchen renovation. Are you almost ready for the reveal? I can’t wait to share a little glimpse into my almost-ready kitchen with you guys!
