Turtle Rìtz Cookìes are a caramel spìn on the tradìtìonal peanut butter Rìtz cookìes whìch are one of our famìly favorìtes. Sìnce we love them so much, I fìgured there had to be other thìngs that would taste delìcìous stuffed between two Rìtz crackers and decìded to try caramel.
I thought these Turtle Cookìes were goìng to be a quìck and easy recìpe success. The fìrst tìme I made them, I used dulce de leche from a can. They were easy to make, they tasted and delìcìous.
