Chocolate Fudge Turtle Cookies with Salted Carmel Drizzle! Just one of my favorite holiday cookies:)
So..I made these in a hurry and didn’t have time to properly photograph them. I thought they were worth sharing anyway 🙂
Christmas cookies are so fun to make and this is one of my favorite recipes!
They are easy to make and taste like a bite-size brownie with fudgy icing, salted caramel, and toasted pecans..The icing is amazing although it needs a little time to set up. I would recommend 3-4 hours or overnight. My Peppermint Hot Chocolate would go great with these! This will be my last Christmas recipe. Next will be healthy recipes for January.
I really hope that everyone will have very happy holidays and take time to make cookies. You will not regret it!!
- 1 box double chocolate fudge cake mix
- 1 tbsp water
- 2 tbsp oil
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups whole pecan halves
Combine cake mix and next three ingredients. Mix well.
Line a baking sheet pan with parchment paper. Arrange pecans in clusters of three.
Shape dough into approximately one inch balls. I used a small cookie scoop which made this really fast. Center each ball on one pecan cluster.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Let cool and spread with chocolate frosting.
1 Tablespoon oil
2 Tablespoons baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons milk
In small bowl combine all ingredients adding milk alternately until it reaches a good spreading consistency.
Spread each cookie with frosting. Cut the corner from a ziplock bag. Pour about 4 Tablespoons Salted Caramel into bag. Snip the corner and drizzle onto each cookie. If not using caramel a small sprinkle of salt across the top of each cookie is great also!
