Steps

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375°F. Prepare 24 mini muffin cups with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Shape the dough into 24 1-inch balls. Press each ball into the bottom of a mini muffin cup, then use your fingers to carefully press the dough up the sides to form little cup shapes.
  • 3
    Bake 8-9 minutes, or until the edges begin to brown. The middles of the cups will likely bubble up to look like cupcakes. Remove the pan from the oven, and use a spoon to flatten out the bubbles, and reshape the dough to look like cups. (Try not to poke holes in the bottoms, though!)
  • 4
    Bake for an additional 3-5 minutes, until the bottom of the cookie dough is cooked and the edges are golden brown. Remove from oven.
  • 5
    While the cookie cups are doing their final round of baking, place the caramel dip in the microwave for 1 minute or so, until the dip is warm and easy to scoop.
  • 6
    Immediately after removing the cookie cups, place about a teaspoon of chocolate chips in the bottom of each cookie cup, and then spoon in a tablespoon or so of warm caramel on top of each cup until the chocolate chips are covered.
  • 7
    Once all of the cups are filled with chocolate and caramel, top with a pinch of chopped pecans.
  • 8
    Let cookie cups cool to room temperature. Then remove from pan carefully with a thin spatula or spoon.

More About This Recipe
These delicious caramel chocolate pecan cookies are made easy with just four ingredients! Our family has always been a big fan of the holiday baking season. We start with a pumpkin pie (or this year, we tried a pumpkin cheesecake) every Thanksgiving. And then from there on out, it’s cookies, scones, bars, cupcakes and anything else you can dream until we see one another again for Christmas. I think it’s safe to say that we all have some sort of shared sweet tooth gene! So this Thanksgiving weekend, I decided to kick off our holiday baking season with these Easy Turtle Tassies! We had spent the day out walking all over freezing Chicago. So the idea of standing on our feet for another hour or two in the kitchen didn’t sound too appealing. But thankfully these easy little treats can be made in less than 30 minutes! And they go even FASTER when you have help. My mom made the little cookie dough cups, I toasted the pecans and warmed the caramel, and then we assembled them together in a snap. So easy, and everyone couldn’t WAIT to give them a try. So rich and tasty! These will be making a second appearance soon. Serve immediately, or cover and store for up to 1 week.
Can't get enough of that rich, golden caramel flavor? We've got all the caramel treats you'll need this holiday season.
