To make ROLO pretzel delights, arrange pretzels on a lined cookie sheet, and position a ROLO on top of each pretzel. Bake the ROLO-topped pretzels at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for three minutes or until the ROLO candies soften slightly, and press a pecan half into each ROLO. Allow the ROLO pretzel delights to cool before serving them.

To make the hidden ROLO cookies, cream 2 sticks of softened butter with 1/4 cup of granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract in a bowl. Stir in 2 cups of all-purpose flour and 1 cup of finely chopped nuts. Work the mixture into a dough, and roll pieces of the dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Pat each ball into a disk, and wrap each disk around a ROLO candy.

Arrange the cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet, and bake them at 360 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 minutes or until they are firm. When the cookies are completely cool, lightly coat them with powdered sugar. Alternatively, melt several ROLO candies, and use the chocolate-caramel mixture to decorate the cookies.
