Turtle Cookies with Chocolate Chips

You are going to love the combination of the chocolate, caramel and pecans! They are definitely a step up from your typical chocolate chips.

Also, feel free to substitute with chopped almonds if you are not a pecan fan, or leave them out altogether if you don’t like nuts.
