Pretzel Rolo Turtles


I've seen these done so many different ways, but this...THIS is soooo good! SALTY. SWEET. GOOEY. CHEWY. CRUNCHY. And the best part...there are only 3 ingredients and it requires no mixing, stirring or cooking. It's a great recipe for the kids to help with too! Here are your 3 ingredients:


Pretzels
Rolo Candies
Pecans (you can really use whatever kind of nut you like, but I think the pecans give them that "turtle" look)


Grab your Rolos and start unwrapping. This is a great activity for the kids to help with.


Lay out the pretzels on a baking sheet. Place the unwrapped Rolo candies on top of the pretzels. You'll get 55-60 candies per 12 oz. bag


Place them in a preheated 350 degree oven for 3-5 minutes, or until the tops of the candy get shiny. Don't leave them in too long. The candies should be soft, but not melted.


Immediately, press the nut into the top of candy


These are sooooo good when they are warm, but they do get a little gooey. There is no way I can just eat one of these babies!

Thank you to my good friend, Kaitlin, for sharing these with me years ago. It has become a family favorite.
