This Double Chocolate Turtle Cookies recipe is full of chocolate, pecans, chocolate chips, and toffee bits in a soft, chewy chocolate pecan turtle cookie!
Ever since I can remember I have loved Turtles chocolates. In my opinion, there is something truly magical to me about the combination of chocolate, pecans and caramel.
We buy the odd box of Turtles but not too often because I can't stop eating them. No matter how hard I try.
Every opportunity I get I try to include this combination in a dessert. It's true sometimes it works better than others but overall you can never go wrong.
These chocolate chip turtle cookies are further proof that the combination of pecans, chocolate chips and toffee bits are made for each other.
These cookies are incredible, huge, works of art! So many of my favorite things can be found inside each and every bite of every turtle cookie!
I know I am not the only one who LOVES this flavor combination, especially in a soft, chewy, chocolate cookie!
This is definitely a bucket list kind of cookie and I urge everyone to try this recipe at least once. I am not even kidding. I wish I was.
Chocolate Turtle Cookies
Pecans, chocolate chips and toffee bits that taste oh so good together! I apologize but I just can't stop thinking about it.
The toffee bits in these amazing cookies melt a little and create an an amazing, sweet, buttery flavor inside each cookie while warm. I can't help but eat my first one as soon as they are cool enough to handle.
That is terrible but totally true. After all of these years you think I would learn. I ALWAYS remove my first chocolate chip turtle cookie too early and more often than not it falls apart.
I place my hot cookie pieces, usually, on a paper towel and I wait. Touching the cookie frequently just waiting for my opportunity. Gradually, I am able to eat the entire first cookie. Pieces and all.
I am a total professional cookie eater afterall.
Still, once cool, the caramel bits become somewhat crunchy which works beautifully with the chocolate chips and pecans.
Melt in your mouth sort of good.
Just thinking about them makes me wish I had one right now.
Turtle Cookie Recipe
I love this chocolate pecan cookie recipe so much that I can't keep them in the house too long or I know myself, I will slowly eat them. One big, giant, huge, delicious cookie at a time.
Sounds ridiculous but I make sure my husband is home or my son is around. Just so I know they will help me eat them. Then if all else fails my neighbors always gladly try everything I need to get out of my home.
Some sweets I can have around my house and I have self control. Others not so much. Over the years, I have never been able to control myself around these chocolate chip turtle cookies.
I just can't.
I have some baked goods that I am totally weak around and this cookie recipe is just one of them.
I am not proud to admit it but it is true.
If you love cookies as much as I do, I know this is a recipe you will make over and over again.
Chocolate Chip Turtle Cookies
You definitely DO NOT have to make these chocolate turtle cookies as big as we do. I have to make them this big but luckily you do not!
Just make sure you make your discs, or hockey pucks, the size you want them to be.
Bake until this chocolate pecan cookie recipe starts to lose their shiny surface and the bottom edge starts to set.
These cookies are definitely better underdone than over and remember they will continue cooking on the baking sheet after you remove them from the oven.
They will totally cool off once they are on the rack. Once cool, chocolate chip turtle cookies can be stored in an airtight container or freezer until needed.
Chocolate Pecan Cookies Recipe
The best part of this chocolate pecan cookie recipe is that you can easily adjust the amounts of pecans, chocolate chips and toffee bits or add in something else! I have even used walnuts in a pinch.
My son adds in extra toffee bits. My husband prefers to use chopped chocolate, instead of chocolate chips. That being said, M&M's add so much color and still taste great.
Use your imagination. I mean you are looking at a soft and chewy chocolate cookie with more chocolate pieces, toffee and nuts!
I just had to include my favorite turtle desserts. A pie, a cake and another incredible cookie recipe. All almost too good for words.
