To make Rolo pretzel turtle candies, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper and preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. If using foil, spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Select buttersnap, waffle or mini pretzels, and place the desired number of pretzels on the cookie sheet.Continue Reading
Unwrap the corresponding number of Rolo candies, and set one on top of each pretzel, with the narrow side up. Put the pan in the oven for a minute or two, just long enough for the candies to become soft. Remove the pan from the oven, and gently press pecan halves on top of each turtle. Allow the candies to cool completely. After they have set, drizzle with melted chocolate or almond bark, if desired. The candies may be sticky on the bottom due to the caramel, try storing them in small foil cups to keep them from sticking together.
A number of variations also work well for these candies. Instead of Rolos, try caramel or regular Hershey's Kisses. Use almonds, walnuts, peanuts or any type of M&M's in place of the pecan halves. You can also top the candies with shredded coconut, candy sprinkles or chocolate covered coffee beans instead of nuts.Learn more about Desserts
