  1. Mix cookie dough as directed on package, stirring in flour in bowl. Roll dough into 1-inch balls; place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  2. Bake at 375 degrees F for 11 to 12 minutes. Cool 1 minute; place cookies on cooling rack.
  3. Microwave caramels and milk uncovered on High 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds, stirring once, until caramels are melted. Dip one side of each cookie at an angle into caramel mixture to coat top half; spread if necessary. If caramel thickens, add up to 1 teaspoon additional milk and reheat.
  4. Spread about 1 teaspoon fudge topping on top of each cookie. Place pecan half on topping. Let stand about 15 minutes until toppings are set. Store between layers of waxed paper in tightly covered container at room temperature.

This cookie is awesome!!!!! I am not a big sugar cookie fan but I cant stop eating these!!! I wish I had enough caramel to dip the whole cookie in....haha. Great recipe, thanks!

Very, very, very good. These are kind of messy but that is half the fun of eating them. I made these during christmas and they stand out in a crowd of cookies.


Getting the carmel to set was impossible. The idea is great but the outcome is not worth the hassle
