I’m not exactly sure what to call these yummies but I’ve heard them called turtles so that’s what I’m going to go with. These have been all over Pinterest and the blogosphere so you’ve probably seen them before, but I love how easy they are to make so I wanted to share them with you here – just in case you didn’t know about them.
- pecan halves
Preheat the oven for 250 degrees. Place pretzels on a cookie sheet. Unwrap Rolos and place one Rolo on each pretzel. Heat in oven for 4-5 minutes (the chocolate will start to look shiny). Remove from oven, place a pecan halve on each piece, and gently press down. Let cool and serve or store in a airtight container.
Some notes: On the first round of turtles I made I ran out of pecan halves so I just put on Christmas m&m on top of the extras. That was pretty, too. Also, if you end up putting your turtles in the fridge to harden, make sure you let them return to room temperature before you try to eat them – I tried to eat one straight out of the fridge and nearly broke my mouth on the cold caramel.
