When my parents came for Christmas, Mama brought some little treats with her. We love snacks in my family...especially at Thanksgiving/Christmas!
This year, instead of her typical toffee, she made a new candy...pretzel turtles. I had seen this before but never made it. Mama was super excited about them; and I must admit, they were pretty good...and simple. You just take a pretzel, the traditionally shaped kind, and put a rolo on top. Then you put those in the oven for just a few minutes, enough to soften the candy.
You remove it from the oven, then press a pecan half into the candy...allow to cool and you have pretzel turtle....or puppy paws, depending on how you look at them! :-)
mini twisted pretzels
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Take the desired number of pretzels and place them on a cookie sheet. Unwrap the same number of rolo candies and place them on top of the pretzels. Place the sheet carefully in the oven and bake for 4 minutes. Remove from the oven and place a pecan half on each candy, pressing down slightly. Allow the candy to cool and enjoy!!!
