What Is a Recipe Using Rolos and Pretzels?

Melting Rolos on pretzels and pressing a pecan half on top is a recipe for simple turtle candies. Melt the Rolos in the microwave for about 30 seconds or in a 350-degree oven for 3 to 5 minutes.

Unwrap the Rolos candies first to save time. For the oven method, cover a cookie sheet with foil or parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. For the microwave, put wax paper on a microwave-safe plate.

Place the pretzels on the lined cookie sheet or plate. Any shaped pretzel works for this recipe. The pretzels can touch, but they should all lie flat on the sheet. Place an unwrapped Rolo candy in the center of each pretzel.

Put the cookie sheet in the preheated oven for 3 to 5 minutes. The Rolo should get soft but not completely melt or lose its shape. In the microwave, melt on 50 percent power for 30 seconds. If the Rolos don't melt enough, microwave for 10 seconds at a time until they are soft enough.

Press a pecan half into each melted Rolo as soon as they come out of the oven or microwave so they are soft enough. Alternatives to the pecan include M&M candies or another pretzel.
