If you’re a Turtles candy fan, you’ll love these decadent chocolate cookies, pressed with chopped pecans and topped with a soft homemade caramel filling and chocolate kiss! These would be perfect on holiday neighbor goodie platters!
As I sit here typing, I can’t help but yearn for another of these phenomenal cookies. My sister and her cute family came to visit for Thanksgiving, so in true sister fashion, we got to work baking and chatting, crafting and laughing.
She made some divine Parmesan Breadsticks to go with our pasta dinner while I put together the dessert, these yummies. I know I say this every time I post about cookies, but these are a new favorite. I’ll be making them for my neighbor Christmas treat platter for years to come.
I’ll be attending a cookie exchange and ornament party soon, and I’m pretty sure I’ll be arriving with these beauties in hand.
Now I’m no fortune teller, but I can predict with great accuracy that they’ll fly right off the plate!
When my sister left to drive home with her family I told her to make sure to grab a few of these for the road. I texted her some hours later to see how her drive had gone with her kiddles and she said all went well, but the only regret was that she had forgotten to grab the cookies on her way out. 🙂
The cookie tastes a lot like the best brownie you’ve ever had, but then it’s rolled in chopped pecans before baking. Just before placing them in the oven, you use a spoon to press the cookie down in the middle, creating the perfect “thumbprint” indentation for the caramel filling. Then a chocolate candy kiss makes its home in a bed of soft caramel.
Oh boy! Be prepared to lose your self control at bite one! At least, I couldn’t keep myself from enjoying more than my fair share.
These cookies are a little piece of heaven on earth! They may require a little more effort than your run-of-the-mill cookie, but they are well worth it! You’ll be thanking yourself with every bite!
Chocolate, pecans and caramel combined are just too phenomenal to resist! I know you’ll agree when you try these!
These suckers are good, my friends. You seriously can’t make them soon enough. Though they lend themselves perfectly to being a holiday cookie, I’m certainly not opposed to enjoying them all year round!
