Easy to make, and so fun.
I learned this from my niece Julie's blog. Even borrowed her picture.
Now really, wouldn't you like to have some of these?
First here's what you need:
(Be sure and get the Mini pretzels, not regular size.)
"Preheat your oven to 200. Line a cookie sheet with foil. Lay out 40 pretzels in a single layer. Top each pretzel with a Rolo. "Bake" for 5 minutes. They will be glossy ad soft but still retain their shape.
Press a pecan into each Rolo. Work quickly or the caramel will begin to harden. Let the "turtles" harden in the fridge. Enjoy!"
Last week, I had my grandgirls over and we all made these together.
Elora, Macie, and Laurynn unwrapping the Rolos.
Laurynn taking them out of the oven after their 5 minutes in at 200'
The girls pressing a pecan into each warm Rolo.
I had a CUTE video of them tasting and reviewing the turtles, but I accidentally deleted it!!
But I will tell you the verdict: They all LOVED them.
Thank you Julie! Go here to see her great cooking blog.
