Tuesday Treats – Pretzel Turtles

Pretzel TurtlesIt seems like I’m always under deadline around the holidays and with all the other stuff going on, time is always at a premium. Still, certain traditions–giving food–must be upheld, right? So…I was digging through the ol’ recipe box for easy Christmas goodies and remembered this one. It’s salty-sweet, gooey-chocolatey, and easy-peasy. What’s not to love, right?

Pretzel Turtles

20 small pretzels (round traditional knot shape or square) I use Snyder’s
20 chocolate covered caramel candies I use Rolo brand
20 pecan halves I use whatever brand is cheap! 😆

1. Preheat oven to 300°
2. Arrange the pretzels in a single layer on a lined cookie sheet. You can use no-stick foil or parchment paper. Don’t use wax paper.
3. Place one candy on each pretzel.
4. Bake for 4 minutes. While candy is warm, press a pecan half into each candy-covered pretzel. Cool completely before nibbling and store in an airtight container.

You can make more at a time if 1) you are REALLY fast with the pecans or 2) you have help. 😉

These are yummy enough to give as gifts to neighbors, co-workers, friends, and family. 😀
