Turtle Cookie Bites

1 package of Devil's Food Cake mix
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil

24 pieces of caramel, each cut in 1/2
pecan halves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the cake mix, eggs & oil together in a large bowl with the Mix N Scraper, till everything is blended well and it looks like cookie dough.

Use a small Scoop and place dough in each well of a Mini-Muffin Pan. Place 1/2 a caramel in the center and push down gently. Add 1 or 2 pecan halves on top, pressing down just a bit to get them to stay.

Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and put pan on cooling rack. Allow to cool a couple minutes in the pan. Remove from pan and allow to cool just a minute or so. Then eat and enjoy with a glass of milk! :)

**You can also make these as regular cookies and instead of the caramel and pecan, just bake them as plain cookies and frost them with Cream Cheese frosting. They are sooo good! You can sandwich them together like oreos, too. Or make them w/ chocolate chips or mint chips, PB chips, etc.

The ones on the left were made with 1/4 of a caramel down first and then the pecan on top. They didn't seem to taste like they had enough, so the next one I did were the ones that had the pecans down first & then the caramel on top. The caramel didn't melt and spread as far as I had hoped. So, the next ones were 1/2 a caramel down first with a couple nuts on top. These were the best, I think. Best eaten warm, while the caramel is soft.

This just shows them from the side so you can see their shape better.
