Chocolate Caramel Pecan Candies | Toasted pecans topped with melted caramels, then layered with two kinds of chocolates. Very similar to Turtles only they use white chocolate as well! Absolutely addictive!

Toasted pecans topped with melted caramels, then layered with two kinds of chocolates. Very similar to Turtles only they use white chocolate as well as milk!  This is a sponsored post on behalf of Huawei Mobile Devices USA. More details at the bottom of this post.  There are two things in the world I love the most. Well, maybe three, but for the purposes of this post we'll focus on two of them.

Turtle Recipes Round Up

Turtle Recipes Round Up | Cravings of a Lunatic | #turtles #chocolate #caramel #pecans #recipes

I love Turtles Chocolates. There's just something about them that makes my heart go all gooey, just like the caramel inside them. I'm obsessed with recipes that "turtle" other things. Ice Cream, Brownies, Bark, Banana Splits, you name it, if it can be "turtled" I'm all in. I asked some of my blogging buddies to hook me with some of their Turtle Favourites and then tossed in my own collection for a fabulous Turtles Recipe Round Up. Hope you love it as much as I do. … [Read more...]

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. No? That's not what Mother's Day is about... hmm, that might explain some things. I wonder if my parole officer knows … [Read more...]

Chocolate Turtle Bundt Cake #Bundtamonth

Turtle Bundt Cake

This month is all about chocolate. Rich, luscious chocolate. I love the stuff. I would swim in it if it was socially acceptable. I would eat if for breakfast, lunch and dinner if I could. Any excuse to bake with chocolate is a great day in my world. Today is a fabulous day. I was able to bake with chocolate and turn it into a turtle treat. … [Read more...]

Turtle Thumbprint Cookies #SundaySupper


  Hi folks. So happy to be here today with a fabulous cookie recipe to share with you. You all know how obsessed I am with all things "turtle". It's really gotten out of hand to be honest. I have far too many turtle recipes in my recipe index. Okay that's a total lie, when can you ever have TOO many turtle recipes. There can never be too many turtles recipes in the world for my taste. I've made oodles of them. … [Read more...]

No Bake Turtle Cheesecake and My 1 Year Blogiversary!


Hi folks. Today is a very special day. 1 year ago today I entered the blogosphere. I was encouraged to open a cooking blog by a very dear friend named Amy Valentino. I met Amy online playing a game called Mousehunt. After playing the game together for some time we became buddies. I was always posting what I was making for dinner or what I was baking on facebook. Quite frankly I was making people drool on keyboards before even opening the blog. … [Read more...]

Maple Glazed Nuts for SRC

Maple Glazed Nuts from Cravings of a Lunatic

Hi folks. I am part of a group called Secret Recipe Club. Once a month we are all assigned another blog that we visit and pick a recipe from to cook and blog about. Then on a set date every month we share that recipe with our readers. It's a great way to inspire community and promote other bloggers. I love participating in this group. It's a real treat to poke around another person's recipes and see what kinds of things they make and learn more about them. … [Read more...]

Butter Pecan Ice Cream for Ice Cream Sunday

Butter Pecan Ice Cream by Cravings of a Lunaitc

Hi folks. I know this looks really good, I know you are in awe of my awesomeness, I know you are probably wondering how we can eat ice cream when it's so freaking cold outside. It is a hard concept. All I can tell you is it's warm and toasty in the house. So that's the loophole. See you now know the secret of the universe. I probably should have kept that to myself. Er, forget I said anything. There's no loophole. Hey what's that behind you??? *tries to edit quickly* We went out to the barn … [Read more...]

Banana Sticky Buns


    Hi folks. As promised I have this little treat for you. These are so amazing. Time consuming but oh so worth it. I've never made sticky buns before. I've made cinnamon rolls and I've made croissants but never these. To tell you how out of my element I am I'll share something with you. I had the most excellent (those too young that's from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, Keanu Reeves, holy yummy) phone conversation with a fellow blogger the other night. … [Read more...]
