Hello friends. I’m super excited about today’s recipe! Not only are these cookies smack down fabulous, but they are the first smack down fabulous recipe to come out of my kitchen in the past week. While I hate to admit it, I’ve been on a bad recipe streak. Last week I tried 5 different new recipes that all fell short of the “blog-worthy” title. Yikes! What a week! Sadly, every recipe to come through this kitchen doesn’t make it to the blog. I would hate to burden you with recipes that are just ok (or even terrible, right!) 🙂 So, after a bad streak I am extra exuberant when a recipe turns out fabulously…and these cookies are just that.

A rich, chewy chocolate cookie is loaded with milk chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and pecan pieces. They are soft on the inside and slightly crispy on the outside (just like I love them to be!). Then they are…


drizzled with a bit of this caramel. I used these awesome caramel bits because they are so easy. You don’t have to spend half the afternoon unwrapping and unwrapping caramels.


And they are pretty cute, yes? You can find them in the baking aisle of your local grocery store.


I added just a bit of milk and melted them down in the microwave. Yum!

Hope some of you get a chance to try them! (Recipe making use of fresh vegetables coming up next!) 🙂


Let me show you how to make it happen!


Chewy Chocolate Turtle Cookies

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes

Yield: 48 cookies


1 C butter, softened
1 C sugar
1 C brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 C cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
3 C milk chocolate chips
1 C white chocolate chips
1/2 C pecans, chopped
1 (11 ounce) bag caramel bits
1 Tb milk


1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cream the butter and sugars together for 2 minutes.
3. Add the eggs and beat for an additional 1 minute.
4. Add the vanilla and mix just until combined.
5. In a separate bowl toss together the flour, baking soda, cocoa powder and salt.
6. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and mix just until combined.
7. Add the chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and pecans. Mix to combine.
8. Roll into 2 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
9. Bake for 7-8 minutes or until the tops of the cookies start to crack. Don't over bake, friends. As soon as the cookies crack, take them out. Then allow them to finish cooking on the hot sheet for a couple of minutes. This will ensure that the cookies stay nice and soft on the inside.
10. Place the caramel bits and milk in a glass measuring cup. Heat it in the microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between each one until the caramel has melted and is nice and smooth.
11. Drizzle the caramel over the top of the cooled cookies.
Serve and enjoy!
