Homemade Turtles

Wanna make the easiest treat on the planet? Then child, do I have the treat for you! The secret? It's only 3 ingredients. Yes, that's right my pretty. Three.

Now there is no excuse to show up to a Christmas party empty-handed. Unless of course you lose all control and eat them en route.

Which is a totally understandable.


1 bag waffle-style pretzels
Rolos - Here is a little tip I learned. When purchasing Rolos, buy the ones you find in a roll, not individually wrapped. Otherwise, you'll be peeling foil off for hours.
Halved pecans

Preheat oven to 300F. On a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat, arrange pretzels and place Rolo on top.

Bake in the oven for 3-4 minutes - just until the chocolate is soft. Take tray out of the oven and immediately place a pecan on top, applying gentle pressure. Be sure not to smush too hard or you'll end up with a mess.

Allow to fully cool at room temperature before enjoying or packaging.

Happy Baking!
