Rolo Pretzel Turtles Recipe

I'm giving you a recipe that would be fabulous for a party, something simple that even Gabby could manage in her heels! My girlfriend, Kelly, taught me how to make Rolo Pretzel Turtles, and I swear it's the best seven-minute candy fix. The chocolate and caramel in Rolo candies softens and oozes all around the salty, crunchy pretzel. Top it off with a pecan half, and it's a homemade treat that won't last long in a candy dish. Well, truthfully, they probably won't make it to the candy dish; Rolo Turtle Pretzels are addictive when they're warm off the baking sheet. Prepare to make a double batch! I usually buy four rolls of Rolos, a bag of mini pretzels and a bag of nuts.

Ingredients:

Nuts - pecan halves (or any other type of nut)
Mini pretzels
Rolo chocolate candies

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350F.

Unwrap your Rolos - try not to eat all of them. Place pretzels on the baking sheet in one layer. Top each pretzel with a Rolo. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes, until the chocolate just begins to melt. The Rolo candy should be soft but not completely melted. Remove from oven, carefully use a spatula to lift the pretzels on cooling rack and immediately squish the Rolo candy with a nut. ooohlala! Watch the caramel ooze out!
