Steps

Hide Images
  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Arrange pecans in groups of 5 on ungreased cookie sheets to resemble head and legs of turtle.
  • 2
    Cut each caramel into 3 equal pieces. Wrap 1 tablespoon cookie dough around each piece of caramel. Press dough lightly onto pecans, covering half of each. (Tips of pecans should show after baking.)
  • 3
    Bake 10 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 20 minutes. Spread about 1 rounded teaspoon frosting on each cooled cookie.

Expert Tips

  • You could use sugar cookie dough instead of the chocolate chip dough if you like.
  • For the best results, keep pecans tightly covered. As they can spoil easily, store in the freezer for longer storage.
