WOW {Warm Oven Wednesday}

I was looking for an easy but yet "healthy/no flour" cookie and found this recipe by barefeet in the kitchen on Pinterest. I love this Flourless Chocolate Turtle Cookies:

COOK'S NOTE: The parchment paper in this recipe is a requirement. 

Flourless Chocolate Turtle Cookies

Yield: 24 cookies

3 cups powdered sugar

3/4 cups dutch process or special dark cocoa powder

1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 large egg whites
1 large egg
2/3 cup dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup caramel bits
1/2 cup chopped pecans, plus a few more for topping if desired

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 
Whisk together the powdered sugar, cocoa, and salt.                                                 

Add the eggs. Whisk again until smooth. 

(Using an electric mixer will make this even easier, 
but it's quite simple by hand.) 
Stir in the chocolate chips, caramel bits, and pecans.

Drop by tablespoons onto a parchment lined baking sheet. 

Top each cookies with a few extra pecan pieces, if desired. 

Bake 12 minutes, until the cookies are just set. 
They should be puffy and cracked across the top.
 Let cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet 
before transferring to a wire cooling rack. 
Let cool completely before 
storing in an airtight container. Enjoy!
