Mock Turtles

Go ahead–spend all day making elaborate neighbor treats this Christmas. Yeah, yeah…knock yourself out. Or…

…you could spend just a few minutes–less than ten, in fact and give these tasty treats a whirl. You won’t be sorry.

Mock Turtles

Ingredients:

Rolos (caramel chocolate candy)

Pretzels (grid shaped work best)

Pecan halves

Directions:

Heat oven to about 250 degrees.  Set pretzels on cookie sheet.

Place 1 Rolo candy on each pretzel.

Set in oven only until the chocolate is soft–about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Press 1 pecan half onto each Rolo. Remove from warm pan to cool.

Now, promptly give them all away to your neighbors or you’ll be sorry…or full of pretzels…and pecans…and chocolate…and caramel… There will be no end.

You will love them…

  1. Any other options for the top? I don’t do pecans, except for in pie – don’t ask me I can’t explain it. Maybe a pretzel and then you’d have a little sandwich, what do you think? Would that work?

  2. Absolutely! In fact, you could put one little peanut on instead. Or a white chocolate dipped pretzel, or a macadamia nut…or a mini fudge stripe cookie. Please stop me…
    :]

  3. Amazing. I love this blog. Need I say more? Thanks Launi! You just saved me half my day…no joke! What a lifesaver!!

  4. When I first thought of making these, I was a little nervous that I would end up melting everything everywhere, wasting all my ingredients and making a huge mess. I am happy to say that none of those awful things happened! 🙂 It did take my Rolos 3 or 4 minutes to get to where they were soft enough to be all nice and squishy without melting away… but of course every oven is different. Thank you SOOO much for this lovely, simple recipe. I was able to let 3 1/2 year old, Miss Chomp help make AND eat them… that’s the best kind of treat recipe! 😀
