This cookie is amazing. On the first bite, we were blown away.

It’s chocolatey, has the perfect amount of caramel and having the candied pecans in there really brought a good amount of savory to offset the sweet. There is also a sprinkle of sea salt on top that helps as well.

The cookie was fresh and soft. The pecans gave it a nice crunch.

Buying this cookie benefits Florida’s Sea Turtle Conservancy, so the proceeds go to a good cause. This cookie was absolutely delicious. We could taste the caramel and chocolate in almost every bite and we wish it was a permanent item on the menu.
