Chocolate Cookie Turtles

Chocolate Cookie Turtles
Prep:        15 minutes
Cooking:  11 minutes
Level:       Easy
Yields:      24 cookies (2 dozen)
Chocolate Cookie Turtles are a fanciful cookie packed full of pecans, caramel and chocolate and will quickly become a favorite.

Ingredients:

  • 1 2/3 cups (about 100) shelled pecans
  • 1 pkg. (16.5 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
  • 20 caramels, unwrapped
  • 2 tablespoons milk

Directions:

PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

SOAK pecans in water for 5 minutes. Arrange 5 pecans on ungreased baking sheets (1 for head, 4 for legs), leaving about a 1-inch circle in center.

SHAPE slightly rounded tablespoons of cookie dough into balls; place over circle onto pecans. Repeat with remaining pecans and dough, placing turtles two inches apart on baking sheets.

BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are crisp. Cool on baking sheets on wire racks for 1 minute; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

MICROWAVE caramels and milk in medium, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 1/2 minutes; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Drizzle over turtles.

NOTE: Dough from one batch Original NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Chocolate Chip Cookies (NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels 6-oz. pkg. recipe) may be used.
