Rolo Pretzel Turtles

December 4, 2011

Hosting a holiday party can sometimes be an overwhelming task. Make your experience smoother by preparing a simple dessert snack like these Rolo Pretzel Turtles. They only require 3 inexpensive ingredients and are simple to make. I promise these treats will disappear from their bowl in no time. Once you have one, you just can’t stop!


  • 1 small bag of round or square pretzels
  • 2 bags Rolo candies
  • 1 bag pecan halves


Preheat oven to 275 degrees. On two cookie sheets spread out rows of pretzels about 1 inch apart. Optional: Roast the pecans on the stove or in the oven. Unwrap Rolo candies.

Place a Rolo candy onto a pretzel.

Bake for for 4 minutes or until the candies soften. (Bake until the chocolate is warm not melted.)

Take the baking sheets out of the oven and quickly place one pecan on top of the Rolo. Press gently until the pecan has pushed the Rolo down.

Allow to cool until the chocolate and caramel have hardened, or put in fridge to chill. Store in airtight storage container.

21 days until Christmas!
