Rolo Pretzel Turtle Treats – The Perfect Holiday Treat

I cannot believe the holidays are already upon us.  I don’t know about all of you but this was such a quick year – I still feel like I will never catch up.   We can’t even fully get the house back in order after a six month camping season.  We start camping again at the end of April and we start it all again.

One thing I can find time for during the holidays and managed to make it happen today – my favorite sweet treat – Rolo Pretzel Turtle Treats!

There are so many ways to make these – you can use Rolo candies, or Hersheys Kisses and caramels  or caramels and melted chocolate.  The gist is always the same with four main ingredients however they are accomplished – Pretzels, chocolate, caramel and pecans.

For this particular version I use pretzel snaps (the square grid like pretzels), Rolo candies and halved pecans.

You can purchase a bag of Rolo candies but they are all individually wrapped and it takes forever to unwrap them all and get the job done.  I purchase the candy bar sized rolls that have approximately 10 Rolos (I never actually counted).  When you unwrap the full package the Rolos fall right out.

I warm up my oven to 300 degrees.

Lay pretzel snaps along a cookie sheet and place a Rolo on top of each.  Place in the oven for about 7 minutes and remove.  Then quickly press a pecan half on top of each.

And don’t forget to eat a handful while you they are gooey and warm!
