Frosting for Waffle Iron Cookies (Turtle Cookies)

Sharon Canfield Recipe

Stove Top

A friend introduced us and the boys when they were young to Turtle Cookies, which are the waffle iron cookie recipe with frosting. Now I've introduced my grandsons to these yummy chocolate Turtle Cookies. They are a big hit with this new generation too!

To make the cookies follow Just a Pinch Recipe posted by Marsha Baker, "Waffle Iron Cookies". I did not post the recipe for the cookies because her recipe and mine are exactly the same.

1 Tbsp
cocoa powder
1/2 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1/4 c
2 1/2 Tbsp
unsalted butter
1 tsp
vanilla extract
powdered sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine first 4 ingredients in a sauce pan, bring to a boil and boil for 3 min.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.
Allow to cool a bit then add powdered sugar to make a soft, pourable frosting.
Pour frosting over the cooled waffle iron cookies, filling the holes and making a smooth, shiny turtle shell. (Follow Just a Pinch Recipe posted by Marsha Baker, "Waffle Iron Cookies" to make the cookies.)

Recipe sounds good but when do you use the waffle iron?

Hi, Susan,

I did not repost the Waffle Iron Cookie recipe, only the way I finish with frosting to make our Turtles - the same recipe I use is one posted here on Just a Pinch by Marsha Baker, Pioneer, OH "Waffle Iron Cookies". Follow her recipe for the cookies and add the frosting to get the Turtles.
