Pretzel Rolos Pecan Turtles

I got this pretzel turtles recipe from a co-worker’s wife.  These turtle pretzels are simple to make and fun for the kids.  My kids were able to do everything, I just slid the parchment off the hot pan to a cold pan so I didn’t have to worry about them burning themselves.  They enjoyed making and eating them, of course 🙂

Pretzel Turtles Recipe

– Small mini pretzels
– Chocolate covered caramel candies (Rolos)
– Pecan halves

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Arrange the pretzels in a single layer on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Place one chocolate covered caramel candy on each pretzel.
  3. Bake for 4 minutes. While the candy is warm, press a pecan half onto each candy covered pretzel. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
