Pretzels + Rolos + Pecans = Pretzel Turtles

I can remember exactly where I first had this delicious treat, it was at a Halloween pumpkin carving party with a bunch of girlfriends. A friend of a friend brought these and I think I ate the entire plate myself before anyone else could try one! Warning #1: Once you start you can't stop. This treat is the perfect mixture of salty and sweet, plus they couldn't be easier to make! Warning #2: The finished product is bite size so one leads to another and another and before you know it, you look down and realize you ate the entire plate full! Oops!!! I promise this treat will be a big hit wherever you take it!


small pretzels (any shape works!)
chocolate covered caramel candies (I used Rolos, they fit perfectly on the pretzel)
pecan halves
parchment paper


Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

Arrange the pretzels in a single layer on the parchment lined cookie sheet. Place one chocolate covered caramel candy on each pretzel.

Bake for 3-4 minutes or until the caramel candy is soft but not melted. Immediately after removing the candies from the oven, while the candies are still warm, press a pecan half onto each candy covered pretzel. Let stand or place in refrigerator until caramel candy is cooled and harden completely. Store in an airtight container.



  1. YUM! I havent had these in ages...will have to put it on the list to make soon!

  2. Just found your blog through Friday Follow!

    I love these, they are AMAZING! And seriously, once you eat one, you cannot stop!

  3. Found from the blog hop! I love those rolo pretzels. Never made them but love it when friends bring to parties!

  4. I've seen these on blogs but never tried them. Might have to give it a go for my next JL meeting.

  5. Since we all need to think about making healthy choices how about substituting the Rollo with a dark choclate caramel candy like the mini dark chocolate Milky Way.
