Awesomely Delicious Turtle Twix Thumbprint Cookies Recipe


Shortbread Layer:

  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Caramel Filling:

  • 14 wrapped caramel candies like Kraft Caramels
  • Tbsp heavy cream
  • 3 pinch of salt if desired
  • 3-4 Tbsp chopped pecans toasted (optional)

Chocolate Drizzle:

  • 6 ounces milk chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil


For the shortbread cookie:

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add softened butter, sugar, egg yolks and vanilla. Beat with the paddle attachment at medium-low speed, scraping the bowl often, until light and creamy. Add one third of the flour; beat at low speed until just combined, repeat with remaining flour. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  3. Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart onto parchment paper lined baking sheets. Make indentation in center of each cookie with your thumb or whatever tool you choose. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until edges JUST begin to brown.

  4. Repeat indentation once cookies are done baking, if necessary. Cool completely on wire cooling racks.

For the caramel filling:

  1. Melt the caramel and heavy cream in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds or so until it is fully melted and smooth. Add pinch of salt and stir. Using a teaspoon measuring spoon, fill each indentation with the caramel.

For the chocolate drizzle:

  1. Pour vegetable oil over chocolate chips and melt the chocolate in the microwave, stirring 30 seconds at a time until melted and smooth, and scoop into a ziploc bag. Barely snip the corner and drizzle over the cookies.

  2. Serve and enjoy!
