Locally made turtles?

pinguinzinho Dec 14, 2008 05:43 PM

I'm looking to get some candy for someone out of town who loves turtles (the chocolate-covered caramel candy with nuts, usually pecans), and I'd like to showcase something local if possible. Are there any candy shops in NYC known for making them? Thanks!

    It may be a little too late, but I absolutely love the turtles from Lilac Chocolates...in Village and Grand Central.

      I'm pretty sure I've had them at Varsanos http://www.varsanos.com/ and they were great. If you go also check out their smores.
