Chocolate Chip Turtle Cookies

You might never go back to regular chocolate chip cookies after you try these turtle cookies! It’s one of my favorite ways to dress up store-bought cookie dough and no one will guess they’re not made from scratch! All that caramel, chocolate and pecans takes them to a whole new level.

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Place cookies on a cookie sheet. No need to spread them out! Place a Rolo on top of each cookie. Bake 1-2 minutes, or until the candy is starting to be melty.
  • Press a pecan on top the melting Rolo immediately after removing from oven. Let cool to set.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to one month.



You can use my chocolate chip cookie recipe OR use store bought OR a refrigerated cookie dough you've baked and cooled.
