Rolo Turtles

A good family friend exposed us to these little gems last Thanksgiving.  If you are looking for a fun recipe to make with your children, these Rolo Turtles would be an excellent choice!  And they are the perfect holiday treat to bring for coworkers, send as teacher gifts, or just a holiday goodie to keep around the house for visitors who drop by!  And let’s be honest, you can never have too many pieces of candy around the house during the holidays for yourself 🙂  Nate and I have been gobbling these up the past few days, and they are so addicting.  We need to get rid of them before both of our bellies can complete with Santa’s (mine already beats Santa!).

Ingredients
40 Butter Snap Pretzels (1 large bag)
40 Rolos, wrapped (2 classic bags)
40 pecan halves

Directions
-Preheat oven to 300 degrees
-Lightly spray baking sheet with non-stick spray
-Arrange pretzels in a flat, single layer on baking sheet
-Place 1 rolo candy on top of each pretzel
-Bake, uncovered, in the oven for 4 minutes.
-Remove and gently press a pecan half onto each rolo. (Don’t press down too hard.  The candy is very soft and the pecan half will continue to sink as the candy cools)

-Let the turtles cool and harden completely before storing in an air-tight container.  But feel free to start eating them while they are still warm!
