Rolo Turtles – Pretzel + Rolo + Pecan = Delicious!

by sunshine on January 29, 2008

This has quickly become one of my favorite dessert recipes because not only are these little treats scrumptious, but I love the fact that they couldn’t be easier to make!  How could something SO easy to make taste SO good?!  This is a great project to do with kids, to give away as gifts (of course, keeping at least a few for yourself!) or to just have around the house to satisfy your sweet tooth.  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we have!!

Chocolate Pretzel Treats

Printable Version: Chocolate Pretzel Treats
Ingredients:
Rolo Candies
Small Pretzels
Pecan Halves
(1 Rolo + 1 Pretzel + 1 Pecan Halve = 1 Treat)
Directions:
Preheat oven to 250 degrees and line a cookie sheet with foil.  Place pretzels flat on the foil-lined cookie sheet.  Place 1 Rolo on each pretzel.  Place in oven for 4-5 minutes or until Rolos become soft.  Immediately after removing pretzels from oven, place a pecan halve on each Rolo and very lightly press down to spread chocolate/caramel over pretzel.  Let stand or place in refrigerator until chocolate/caramel hardens.
Goodies will keep for a good while in an air tight container.

I have a similar recipe. I use different flavored hershey kisses and top them with either another pretzel (for more salty) or an M&M (for more sweet). One of these days I'll have to try the rolo and pecan!

Love these treats! We call them Puppy Paws, because the underside looks like a puppy footprint.

I use the waffle-shaped pretzels – they hold the whole Rolo. I used to melt chocolate, drop a dollop in the little twist pretzels and top w/mini M&Ms – I called them reindeer paws, even though reindeer don't have paws 😉 – but they're way more trouble than these!

someone made these for our holiday snack day and had to find the recipe. Really good and addicting so I'm making them now. Just wish I bought two bags of rolos instead of one small bag..

I used "Great Value Creamy Caramel Milk chocolate cups" from WalMart which don't need to be unwrapped.

Do you think that these could be frozen?

We call these Mouse Tracks and I roast the pecan before I put them on the rolo/pretzel because it takes a lot better that way. Try it… 🙂

Can you microwave them instead of bake?

Are they just as good with a walnut instead of a pecan?
