Turtle Cookies


Since a couple recipes didn’t call for all of the ingredients in one package, I was left with some extra ingredients. I had 1/2 a bag of milk chocolate chips, 1/2 cup of minced pecans and a little over 1/2 cup of caramel bits. I hate to be wasteful and I know if they go into the pantry that they will never be seen again. So I created a turtle cookie that used these 3 ingredients up! This fit in nicely making the 12th cookie on my 2012 Christmas Baking Madness.
