Made some of these for the recent family birthday celebration. They were all gone by the time everyone left... I'd say they were a hit! Including them here, so I don't forget about them! (As seen on Our Best Bites.)
Easy Pretzel Turtles
small pretzels (I like squares)
Rolo candies - one bag has about 55 candies
Topper – pecan halves, peanuts, cashews, M&Ms
Optional: almond bark or white chocolate for drizzling
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Place pretzels on a lined baking sheet (foil, parchment, silpat).
Unwrap your Rolo candies and place one on top of each pretzel like a cute little hat.
Place pan in the oven for 2-3 minutes. (Any longer is probably too long. You just want the chocolate on the outside to look glossy and melty, but they should still hold their shape.)
Remove pan from oven and take your topper and gently press it right into the center of the chocolate candy.
Optional: If you want to get fancy you can give them a little drizzle of almond bark or white chocolate. Just melt some in a plastic baggie and nip the corner off to drizzle. (A little goes a long way - half a square of almond bark for half a batch of candies, and there will be plenty left over.)
