Easy homemade Turtle Chocolate Cookies with gooey Turtle candy centers, topped with a caramel drizzle. The perfect sweet, crunchy chocolate treat!
Candies and Cookies are my favorite things to make around Christmas.
These cookies were dreamed up with my Mom in mind. She loves Turtles and I always think of her when I see them.
I happened to find a big box of Turtles on sale at Target and figured I could make them the same way we make the classic Peanut Butter Blossoms (whoooaa that’s an old post and photo).
But instead of a peanut butter cookie, I did a dark chocolate cookie base.
Then I smashed in a turtle as soon as the cookies came out of the oven.
And for good caramel measure – I drizzled caramel on top. HEAVEN in a cookie.
They are like little turtle bombs. ;-)

Turtle ANYTHING brings me to my knees. These are incredible cookies, Jessica! I could devour a dozen!
These look pretty spectacular. Turtle bombs indeed!! Love.
Wow, these are so tempting! I’m totally in love. Can’t wait to try!
Girl, you know me. These are an absolute dream! When I saw the thumbnail I thought they were “Turtle like”….not with actual Turtles smooshed in them!! GAH!
Amazing! I love any combination of caramel and chocolate!
That caramel drizzle – HEAVENLY! Love this whole combo, yum!!
do you have any idea why it’s called “Turtle”? because I totally love turtle everything but always found it to be the strangest moniker for peanut/caramel/chocolate combos. anyhoo – these look awesome! turtle on :)
