Soft Triple Chocolate Turtle Cookies rolled in mini chocolate chips and pecans then filled with creamy, silky caramel and drizzled with chocolate. AKA heaven.
One of the first times Patrick and I hung out, I casually invited him to see the new movie Pride and Prejudice (2005). When he showed up to the theater, he was met by my best friend, two of my roommates, my sister, my best friend’s mom, and my mom. As the lights dimmed and Jane Austin’s classic came to life, he sunk deep into his chair and wondered what he had gotten himself into…until all was made right with a simple offering of “turtle?” (aka a chocolate covered pecan caramel cluster) Although he didn’t know what a turtle was, he bravely accepted. We were married 4 months later.
Now we can devour these Triple Chocolate Turtle Cookies in the privacy of our own home without sharing with my best friend, my roommate, my sister…and that’s a relief because it is very hard to share these ridiculously addicting cookies. I made them New Year’s Day and had to exercise all my self control to save them for our guests. Usually cookies don’t call to me that much. These ones scream to me! After all, their chocolate dough is rolled in mini chocolate chips and pecans…
Then an indentation is made using the bottom of a 1/2 teaspoon…
The cookies are baked and filled with silky, creamy caramel that stays soft…
So these cookies are every bit as delicious days after they were made as they were fresh out of the oven.
Now I realize you have probably made resolutions about eating healthier and I should be posting a salad recipe (that’s coming) but I am too in love with these Triple Chocolate Turtle Cookies to not share them right now. And you will be too. Love at first bite.
