Shortbread Turtle Cookies
(1) package of Walkers Shortbread Rounds
1 recipe Vanilla Bean Salted Caramel Sauce, room temperature
1/2 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
1 tablespoon coconut, canola, or vegetable oil
2 tablespoons chopped pecans (optional)
Spread the shortbread rounds across a large baking sheet or platter. Prepare the caramel sauce and let it cool to room temperature. Combine the chocolate chips and oil in a small glass bowl or measuring cup. Heat in the microwave at 50% power for 90 seconds. Stir and heat an additional 30 seconds only if needed. Stir until smooth.
Pour 1 teaspoon of caramel over each shortbread round. Sprinkle with pecans. Drizzle with chocolate. Refrigerate for 20 minutes, until the chocolate is firm. The cookies will keep nicely in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Store any remaining caramel sauce or chocolate sauce in airtight containers in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
