Turtles French Toast #BrunchWeek

Turtles French Toast by Cravings of a Lunatic

Welcome to Brunch Week.

Today’s recipe is a personal fave of mine.

It’s seriously over the top, decadent, and dripping with all kinds of things you probably shouldn’t eat for breakfast.

But it’s for Mother’s Day….

so who gives a flip about right and wrong.

Mother’s Day is all about being a rebel, doing all the things you shouldn’t do all in one day.


That’s not what Mother’s Day is about…

hmm, that might explain some things.

I wonder if my parole officer knows about this.

Turtles French Toast #BrunchWeek

Decadent French Toast made with chocolate, caramel and pecans. A turtles lovers dream come true!


    For the Toast:
  • 6 slices of bread
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • For the Toppings:
  • 1/2 cup of homemade caramel
  • 1/2 cup of chopped pecans
  • 4 ounces of melted chocolate


  • In a bowl whisk the eggs, milk, cocoa powder and sugar till well combined.
  • Pour that into a shallow dish.
  • Dunk in your bread and allow each side to soak for about 2 minutes or so.
  • Get a frying pan or cast iron skillet hot and melt a little butter in it (1 to 2 tablespoons). Lay the bread in the pan and cook each side till golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • If you want to keep those warm slide them in the oven on a cookie sheet with a cooling rack on top, and keep oven around 200 degrees F.
  • Melt your chocolate now, just pop it in the microwave for 30 to 60 seconds, stirring often. (every 15 seconds is the way I do it)
  • Heat up your pre-made caramel.
  • Then the chocolate.
  • Probably more caramel.
  • Then maybe more chocolate.
  • Then toss some pecans on.
  • Serve with a big old I Love Turtles smile!

    I don’t think so I have ever had such a massive, but surely delicious french toast Kim!

    Whoa, this does look decadent but amazing and worth it! I bet you could also serve this with a little vanilla ice cream for dessert. :)

  4. 7

    Perfect! I love the whole concept and recipe for Turtle French Toast. Is there anything you can’t turtle? I’m waiting to see Turtle Salad. ;-) Fun stuff – thanks.

    I’m going to be thinking about this french toast ALL DAY! Come to mama, my little turtles!

  7. 13

    My daughter always has to decide whether she wants a savory breakfast or a sweet breakfast. In this case, I don’t think she’d have a tough decision!

  8. 15

    You crazy turtle girl, you did it again. Another one out of the park!! WOW!!

  9. 17

    I hate that I am eating cereal right now. This is 1 million times better :D

    I’m sure your parole officer would turn a blind eye if you gave him/her a giant platter full of this ridiculously amazing french toast! You’re killing me with all the chocolate and caramel on that plate. And you should totally use Mother’s Day as an excuse to do whatever the heck you want! I think it’s a requirement (if not, it should be).

  11. 21

    Shut the front door… and help me find my damned stretchy pants! I think I left them over on your candied bacon post

  12. 23

    LOL Over the top is an understatement but I’d stand in line for one! :)

  13. 25

    WOW! The homemade caramel on this french toast looks amazing!

    I know I already said this once, but I’m going to say it again. I love you for making this dish. Yeah, maybe I don’t need all of those things in the morning, but who cares. Want trumps need!
