Pretzel Turtles

Every time I make this candy people ask me for the recipe. I have to laugh because there really isn't a recipe. It's just more of an assembly job. The hardest part of the whole thing is unwrapping all the candy. Here's what you'll need:

  • 1 bag Rolo candy
  • 1 bag mini twist pretzels
  • pecan halves

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. While it's heating up, unwrap all the candy.

Dump the pretzels on a cookie sheet. Don't worry about arranging them, just make sure they are in a single layer. Now put a piece of candy in the center of each pretzel. Put them in the oven for 4 minutes, then take them out and push a pecan half down on each piece of candy. That's it! Don't expect the candy to melt. It will hold it's shape until you place the pecan. I put them in the refrigerator for about an hour to let them set up again. 

These are the perfect little bite of salty, crunchy & sweet. Whenever I make them, I double the amount because they disappear so quickly.
