These decadent Brownie Turtle Cookies taste even more wonderful than they look! Chewy, fudgy brownie cookies made fresh from scratch. These are good enough to eat alone – but truly decadent with soft caramel filling, pecans and a drizzle of dark chocolate ganache.
This crazy mama is making 24 different cookies, candies and treats for her holiday cookie trays - we're sharing with lots of neighbors and family friends this year! I have a super secret ulterior motive as well...I'm making Christmas Holiday Cookbooks for each of my kiddos and siblings. I have a notebook for each holiday, and keep my recipes and notes there for convenience the next year. As much as I love my iPad and Kindle Fire, there's just something about a paper recipe in front of me that I can scribble notes on if I need to.
Brownie Turtle Cookies are fabulous any time of the year, but especially nice on a tray of Christmas cookies!
If you've ever made or tasted Swig Cookies, this is my delicious twist on those! A chewy brownie cookie is indented to hold all of the wonderful fillings - creamy caramel, pecan pieces, and a beautiful drizzle of dark chocolate on top. These are just so easy to make!
Truly decadent, and so delicious! I'm always amazed at how quickly these disappear when I make them!
Hope your holiday baking is going well, and you have a chance to relax and enjoy the days before Christmas!
