“I just love anything that has the ingredients of a turtle--chocolate, caramel and pecans. So when I was looking through a Taste of Home cookie book and saw this recipe, I had to try it. These do NOT disappoint. Absolutely yummy especially with a good cup of coffee. This will definitely be a repeat recipe in our home! NOTE: I did make extra of the caramel and chocolate drizzles for extra goodness.”
