Windy, Windy Monday . . .at least there is some sun!

Holy for wind.  Rattling pictures hanging on the wall even.  Of course - we here in West Central, Minnesota know that it's not a normal day without some BREEZE, and I mean more than just a nice friendly breeze most of the time.  Last night I watched the Chopped Champions finale, love that show, Chopped!  They get such odd ball ingredients and have very little time to turn them all into something that can be eaten together and has to taste good.  Pretty sure I couldn't do it, ha!  Now bring on Chopped Baking and I might be able to do something.  Last night then went to bed with a new Cooking with Paula Deen magazine - full of recipes a person can actually try and they sound good.  But this is the recipe that really caught my eye, at first run through of the magazine, it's on the back cover and it's a recipe from Martha White muffin mixes.  I haven't tried them yet - but I will, trust me on that.  If you happen to make them before I get to it - please post what you think  :)

Turtle Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
2 (7.4 oz.) pkgs. Martha White chocolate chip muffin mix
48 rolo (chocolate/caramel) candies, unwrapped
5 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1/4 c. butter
2/3 c. chopped pecans
non stick cooking spray

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat cookie sheet with spray.  Microwave the chocolate and butter in a bowl until melted together and stir until smooth.  Stir in condensed milk.  Stir in muffin mix, until blended.  Roll tablespoons full of dough into balls, dip the bottoms in pecans.  Place on cookie sheet, nut side up.  Bake 7-8 minutes or until slightly crackled.  Press a rolo candy into center of cookie.  Cool cookies on rack.  Swirl chocolate gently with knife while candy is warm, if desired.
