Quick, easy and delicious Cookie Cups filled with Chocolate Chips, chopped Pecans, Caramel and topped with another Pecan Nut and drizzled with White Chocolate

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. 

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 in recipe card).
