S’mores lovers REJOICE! This is one dessert that is packed with flavor and it’s sure to impress your summer guests. Turtle S’mores Cake for the win.
One of my favorite parts of grilling season is s’mores! Grilling isn’t just for meats and vegetables, right? Whether it’s the traditional s’more with graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows or more of the gourmet s’mores — they’re all pretty delicious (and messy). Can I get an amen?
Now, let’s talk about those turtle candies? Caramel, chocolate, and pecans! Mmmm. How about bringing the two together? S’mores and Turtles. That brings us to this delicious goodness — Turtle S’mores Cake!
