Turtle Chocolate Cookies

Candies and Cookies are my favorite things to make around Christmas. These cookies were dreamed up with my Mom in mind. She loves Turtles and I always think of her when I see them.

I happened to find a big box of Turtles on sale at Target and figured I could make them the same way we make the classic Peanut Butter Blossoms (whoooaa that’s an old post and photo).

But instead of a peanut butter cookie, I did a dark chocolate cookie base. Then I smashed in a turtle as soon as the cookies came out of the oven. And for good caramel measure – I drizzled caramel on top. HEAVEN in a cookie. They are like little turtle bombs. 😉
