Easy Pretzel Turtles (Recipe from Our Best Bites Blog)
Rolo candies - one bag has about 55 candies
Pecan halves - or optionally peanuts, cashews, almonds and m&m's
Optional: almond bark or white chocolate for drizzling
This is easy as can be! Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Place pretzels on a parchment lined baking sheet. I like to use parchment paper for easy handling, but you can also put them on foil, a silpat, or directly onto the cookie sheet.
Unwrap your Rolo candies and place one on top of each pretzel like a cute little hat.
Place pan in the oven for 3-4 minutes. Remove pan from oven and take a pecan (or other nut or M&M) and gently press it right into the center of the chocolate candy.
Drizzle with almond bark or white chocolate. Just melt some in a plastic baggie and nip the corner off to drizzle. A little goes a long way; I used a half a square of almond bark for half a batch and had plenty left over.
