Similar to last year's Chocolate Pretzel Bites, these Pretzel Turtle Bites were just as easy to make and Excellent (with a capital "E"). Oh, and did I mention that they're also 100% addicting? I dare you to try and eat just one. They're also sturdy and could easily be made ahead for a party and stored in a ziploc bag until ready to serve. Enjoy!
Snap pretzels (square shaped)
Rolo candies, unwrapped
Pecan halves (if you're allergic to nuts, try them with m&m's instead)
Directions: Line baking sheet with parchment paper (optional). Lay out pretzels on baking sheet, in a single layer.
Place one unwrapped Rolo candy fat side down onto each pretzel. Place in the oven at 275 degrees for about 2.5 - 4 minutes.
Stay close to the oven and start testing for readiness at about 2-1/2 minutes by firmly pressing a pecan half into a Rolo. When they're ready (soft enough to press the pecan in readily and evenly), remove from oven and immediately press in pecan halves.
If they cool off too much before pressing in all of the pecans, carefully remove the ones that are finished and place the unfinished ones back into the oven for a minute or so. Leave on baking sheet until completely cooled. (we usually put them in the fridge for 10 minutes or so, to speed up the process).
