Don't you just love it when all your ducks line up in a row. This is something that I have wanted to make for a very long time, but I just never happened to have all the ingredients in the house at the same time.
I had some rolo's leftover from my Pampered Chef Party last month and I wanted to use some of them up. We are invited out for supper tonight so I thought that if I made some Rolo Pretzel Turtles I would have something really scrummy and homemade to bring as a hostess gift.
I never like to go visiting empty handed, do you?
Oh my . . . these are sooooo yummy. And so very easy to make! Almost too easy. They're too easy to eat as well . . . so I think I'm taking some flowers instead of . . . um . . . Rolo Pretzel Turtles. Gifts you make for other people don't have any calories in them . . . right?
Don't judge me. Sigh . . . I am so wicked, and I have zip willpower. Obviously!
*Rolo Pretzel Turtles*
Makes as many as you have pretzels, rolos and nuts to make
This recipe is a doddle and oh so scrummy. Dangerous.
Rolo chocolate candies
mini salted pretzels
toasted whole pecan nuts
Preheat the oven to 180*C/350*F/ gas mark 4. Lay out your pretzels on a lightly buttered baking sheet. Top each pretzel with a rolo candy, top side up. Bake in the oven for 3 to 5 minutes. You want the rolo to be soft, but not melted. Remove from the oven and immediately press a toasted pecan nut onto the top of each, squashing the rolo down a bit. Don't be too heavy handed though as you don't want the goodness to squish out the bottoms. Eat warm. Eat cold. Just EAT! Yummo!
