I’ve always loved TURTLES® candies. They’re the perfect combination of nuts, caramel and chocolate, and they just make people happy. Especially me.
I’ve previously baked TURTLES® candies into chocolate peanut butter cookies before but never into chocolate chip cookies and I’m so glad I did because these are in my top 5 cookie recipes of all time. Yep, that good.
I adapted one of my recipes for chocolate chip cookies but rather than using softened butter I browned it.
That was an excellent decision because the nutty, rich flavor of the browned butter enhances the nutty flavor in the TURTLES® Minis Original Pecan flavor that I incorporated into the cookies. The Minis are about half the size of the classic candy, and sold in bags, and I found them in the candy aisle of my regular grocery store.
Do you ever have a certain food or treat that you like to keep on hand just for yourself? C’mon, you know you have that special thing. Well TURTLES® are so delicious you sometimes want to keep them for just yourself. I like to keep a stash of them just for me in my baking cabinet. My family knows not to touch anything in there. And when my chocolate cravings strike, I’m covered.
