  • Place chocolate chips and shortening in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute; stir. Continue microwaving 30 seconds or until melted; stir until smooth. Drizzle over cooled caramel cookies. Let stand until set, about 2 hours.

    These were awesome! I was looking for something to use for my son's Dr Seuss themed birthday party. We used your cookies for Yertle the Turtle. Super easy and so yummy! These were a bigger hit than the cupcakes. And I had a ton of people ask for the recipe. Thank you so much for sharing!
