turtle candies

Christmas time means all kinds of parties, and that means food too!  I had these Turtle Candies a few years ago, and I have been obsessed ever since!  I made them and took them to work, and they were gone before lunch!  These are so easy and fast (10 minutes max), and everyone loved them.

Makes 40-50 each

1 bag waffle style pretzels
1 bag Rolos, unwrapped (a small bag made about 50)
2 cups whole pecans, roasted
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. On a lined baking sheet, place a pretzel down first. 
  3. Top pretzel with one Rolo.
  4. Place baking sheet in oven for 2-3 minutes or until Rolo begins to melt.
  5. Pull out baking sheet and top each Rolo with 1 pecan half.  For a nut free option, top with another pretzel instead.
  6. Cool.
  7. Enjoy!
When I told my co-workers how I made them, they were all shocked because they thought it was going to be complicated.  In fact, someone went home that night and made them for family coming in that night.

What kinds of foods do you like to have around the holidays and at parties?
