Turtle Cookie Cups

Turtle Cookie Cups ~ Quick, easy and delicious Cookie Cups filled with Chocolate Chips, chopped Pecans, Caramel and topped with another Pecan Nut and drizzled with White Chocolate #CookieCups #TurtleCookies www.WithABlast.net

Turtle Cookies are one of my favorite cookies and when I came across a recipe for these Turtle Cookie Cups a while ago, I knew I had to make them as soon as possible.

Absolutely fantastic ! The Cups are Cookies, same texture and crunch, but in a small Cup form, and filled with Chocolate Chips and finely chopped Pecans, this is a winner already !

And who does not like a gooey Caramel filling ? Topped with another Pecan half and drizzled with White Chocolate ! Your guests will most definitely be impressed with these sweet delights, or make some for dessert and enjoy the leftovers the following day at tea time {or with your first cup of coffee!}

And again, I had way more than I should have, but these Turtle Cookie Cups are so addictive, one just can not stop eating them. At least this time I had quite a few helpers enjoying them just as much as I did. Instant family favorite ..

I made mine in my Babycakes Cupcake Maker which I have been using at least once or twice a week since I bought it a couple of months ago. It is just so much quicker and for these specific Cookie Cups, one does not need to pre-heat the machine at all.

Whether you use your oven or a machine, these little sweet treats will win over everyone's taste buds.

*As all countries do not stock the Caramel Condensed Milk, you can make your own by Googling how to make it in your slow-cooker or follow the recipe for the Caramel from the original recipe {link below}

TURTLE COOKIE CUPS
Adapted from : Taste Of Home

24 Cookie Cups

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup Butter, softened
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Sugar
1 Exra-Large Egg
1/2 t Vanilla
1 1/2 cup Flour
1/2 t Baking Soda
1/4 t Salt
1/3 cup Chocolate Chips
3 TB Pecan Nuts, chopped finely

1/2 can (of a 397g can) Nestle Treat Caramel Condensed Milk *
24 Pecan Nut Halves
1/3 cup White Chocolate, melted

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 190 deg C (375 deg F) - spray a mini muffin pan or a Babycakes Cupcake maker with cooking oil.
2.) Beat together the Butter and the Sugars until creamy - add the Egg and Vanilla - beat until well combined.
4.) Sift together the Flour, Baking Soda and Salt - gradually beat into the Butter/Egg mixture.
5.) Spoon approximately 1 tablespoon of the batter into the prepared mini muffin pan holes or into the Babycakes Cupcake maker - use a small spatula to spread the batter over the bottom and up the sides of each muffin hole.
6.) Sprinkle the Chocolate Chips and chopped Pecan Nuts into the centers of the batter "cups" - bake 12 - 15 minutes in the oven or if using the Cupcake Maker, follow the directions of the Maker.
7.) Remove from the oven or Cupcake Maker and let cool completely on a cooling rack.
8.) Fill each Cookie Cup with a teaspoon of Caramel Condensed Milk {you might need to press down a bit} and top with a half Pecan Nut.
9.) Drizzle with the White Chocolate and chill for a few minutes until the Chocolate has set.
