My kids LOVED helping with this recipe. It was super easy and they taste great.
I'm not going to lie. This isn't a new concept. The recipe is all over the internet and on the back of the Rolo bag. But, since I use this blog as my portable recipe box, it needs to be on here!
Pretzels (we used the Snyders snaps, they are square and not butter flavored)
1 bag of Rolos, unwrapped
Pecan halves (or you can use almonds, cashews, red & green m&ms)
Recipe makes about 50 turtles, depending on how many Rolos are in the bag.
First, you need to toast the pecans. At 350, toast the pecans on a cookie sheet for 4 minutes. Stir them around and toast another 4 minutes.
Meanwhile, place all the pretzels -salt side down is my preference (it's prettier)- on a cookie sheet lined with parchment. Kids loved this part, too. Then place all the Rolos, fat side down, in the center of each pretzel. Bake at 350 for 3 minutes. Remove and immediately place a pecan in the center and press down gently. Not too hard or the caramel oozes out. If you don't like pecans, use an M&M, almond, cashew, even Reese's pieces candy. Let cool.
