These delicious little treats would make a great addition to any holiday cookie platter!
You can use round, square, or regular pretzels for this recipe. I used round pretzels since I had them on hand and they worked perfectly.
These are incredibly easy to make since you only need three ingredients! But don’t let the simplicity of this recipe fool you, they are delicious and addicting. You have been warned.
Turtle Pretzel Candies
1 large bag of bite-sized pretzels
2 bags Caramel-Filled Milk Chocolates (I used Rolos)
2 cups salted pecans
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. On a large cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, line up pretzels and top each with one caramel-filled chocolate. Put in the oven for about 5 minutes, or until chocolate is shiny and beginning to melt on the outside.
Remove from the oven. Top each pretzel/chocolate with one pecan, pushing down lightly so that pecan adheres to chocolate, and chocolate adheres to pretzel. Allow candies to cool completely.
Makes about 60 candies
