Turtles Cookies Recipe

I have been resisting a half a box of Turtles chocolates for about a month now.  They have been sitting in my living room calling out my name.  Today, I decided to make them into cookies and share them with friends.

2/3 cup melted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tbsp hot water
2-2/3 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
12 Turtles Chocolates (or Pecan Caramel Clusters)

Preheat oven to 350F.  Take 12 Turtles out of the box.

Chop them up into chocolate chip sized pieces

In two separate bowls, mix the wet ingredients (melted butter, brown sugar, eggs, hot water) and sift the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt).

Combine the wet and dry ingredients together quickly and fold in the Turtle pieces until they are just combined.  Don't overmix.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Using a small or medium sized Spring Release Ice Cream Scoop, scoop out the dough and flatten each mound with the bottom of a lightly oiled glass.  This will make a nice uniform shaped cookie.  If you don't have one of those ice cream scoops, just form the cookie dough into a mound with 2 spoons.

Bake at 350F for 10 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned but still soft inside.  Let cool for 5 minutes before eating!
