Chocolate, Caramel, Nut Biscotti

These remind me of the flavor of a turtle all wrapped in an elegant biscotti. Great for entertaining, anyone that loves Turtles will love these!

1 pkg. Duncan Hines caramel cake mix
1 1/2 C. flour
2 eggs
1/2 C. unsweetened applesauce (or margarine)
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla nut extract
1 C. mini chocolate chips
3/4 C. pecans, finely chopped.

Preheat oven to 375.

Mix well cake mix, flour, eggs, applesauce, and extract. Stir in nuts and chips.
Divide dough in half, shape each half into a 9x3" log. Place on a greased cookie sheet (4" apart) and slightly flatten the tops of each log.

Bake 20-25 minutes or til tops of logs are golden brown. Cool on cookie sheet 5 minutes, then move logs to wooden cutting board and cool 10 minutes.

With serrated-edge knife, cut logs into 1/2" to 3/4 " slices, return slices to cookie sheet and bake an additional 10-15 minutes or til cookies are golden brown.

Drizzle lightly with chocolate or caramel syrup.
Yield: 36-40 cookies
