Short And Sweet. Easy Turtle Cookie Cups.

Easy Turtle Cookie Cups

My household is in total agreement.

We LOVE these Turtle Cookie Cups.

Fantastically easy, this is the best little treat I have made recently.

I’m sure any brand of cookie mix will work, but this Betty C with big chunks of chocolate is wonderful. The cups baked up moist, the delectable caramel candy softened and the pecan added perfect crunch. And they are adorable, too.

6. Cool completely. Remove from pans with narrow spatula.

Short and Sweet music time.

I asked for some suggestions on the ISITK Facebook page and got some nifty recommendations. Here are two. I’ll play some of the others in the next S & S post.

I always forget how many little known, but very cool songs The Beatles have in their catalog. Like this really short and quite poignant tune as it is the last song on the last album the band recorded.

Songs don’t get much sweeter than this next one by Drunk Mule. Bonus: If you are in the mood to sing in the kitchen, the lyrics are easy to pick up. :)

Check out The Beatles here where you can also buy their music.

You can learn more about Drunk Mule on Bandcamp, and get their music on a name your price basis. Buy Pussy Bite The Hound, because cover art doesn’t get any more awesome than this.

    Tricia, I continue to make these turtle cookie cups over and over…for a little appreciation gift or just to have at home. So delicious and so easy. For Christmas last year, I put a red and green M&M instead of the pecan! A favorite at our house!
