Easy Pretzel Turtles

  • 24 mini pretzels
  • 24 chocolate covered caramels such as (unwrapped) Rolos
  • 24 pecan halves
  • Optional finishing touch: 3 tablespoons white or regular chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
Lay the pretzels on top of the baking sheet in a single layer
Place a caramel on top of each pretzel, centered
Place the baking sheet in the oven and “bake” for 3 to 4 minutes -just enough time for the caramels to soften.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven and carefully but quickly place a pecan halve on top of each caramel and press down so the pecan almost touches the pretzel.
Allow the pretzel caramels to completely cool before serving.

Optional touch: If you want to add a bit of flair to each turtle, melt the chocolate chips in a small microwave safe container in the microwave for 60 seconds. Stir the chocolate chips and heat the chocolate in the microwave again for 30 seconds if necessary. Dip a fork in the chocolate and drizzle the chocolate over each turtle. Allow the chocolate to harden before serving or packaging.
