2013 OC FAIR CULINARY ARTS BLUE RIBBON WINNER
This decadent treat is a core “Mom” Valenza original recipe that was only made at Christmas for dear friends and family. The overwhelming response over the last 40 years is the inspiration for Valenza Chocolatier. Georgia Pecans are roasted to a crisp finish and laid out to form the 'legs' of our shoreline friend. Creamy, silky caramel punctuated with sea salt is luxuriously draped over the pecans forming the salty, chewy body of our friend. Finally, a shell of rich Venezuelan 61% dark chocolate is layered on to protect this enticing confection, remember, "slow and steady wins the race", so try and savor this delectable Tartaruga as long as you can!
