ASM Treat Exchange

Another Suburban Mom is doing a blogger holiday recipe exchange so me being so well versed in the kitchen, I figured I’d join in.

This is a fun, easy candy recipe that only uses three things – none of which you actually have to measure!  You can make as many or as few as you want but I suggest making plenty because people seem to love ‘em.

Rollo Pretzel Turtles

1 bag of Rollo candies  (These are chocolate covered caramel candies)  The bag has about 50 or so pieces.

1 bag of tiny pretzel twists or Snyder “Snaps” (These are small square pretzels)

Pecan or Walnut halves – one for as many “turtles” you are making

Place the pretzels on a baking sheet and top each one with a Rollo candy.  Bake in a 250 degree oven for 1-2 minutes or until the candy just starts to melt.  Take them out, squash a nut half on top of each.  Let the cool and harden and you’re ready for some sweet/salty goodness!

Euuegh!You Americans do eat some funny things.
Rolos only come in small packets of about 10 here and are to be savoured with the last one given away ( all to do with the strapline... do you love anyone enough to give them your last Rolo!)
But with pretzals......
can't cope with those crackers and marshmallows either.
All too weird.

Mmmmmm those sound good. I bet if they make great gifts/party food. Although I would probably sample too many of them.

Thank you so much for participating today.

I love pretzels but alas have an allergy to chocolate! I love candy of most types, turkish delight being one, to name a few...hundred others, I have a sweet tooth, well I used to have most of them have fillings or are missing due to a child hood of eating to many sweeties ;0

Ron said...

OMG...these sound absolutely ORGASMIC!

Pretzels with chocolate are to DIE FOR!

Thanks for sharing, Sis!

I think I may need some of these to keep me going through the holiday retail madness within the next two weeks!

Have a GREAT weekend!

Fire Byrd ~ You don't know what you're missing! LOL My son-in-law calls them "A Little Piece of Heaven!" I'm with you on the S'mores, though. Yucky!

ASM ~ You're welcome. I'm making that Egg Nog Poundcake for Christmas Eve. It sounds delicious.

Indigo ~ Seriously!?! Allergic to chocolate!!! I'd just perish if I couldn't have chocolate. (You're most welcome, hun. I'm glad you like them!)

Ron ~ They are and they are so damn easy to make!

Jackie ~ I use pecans but I've had them with the walnuts and they are delicious!

Rage ~ Absolutely! Chocolate - white, milk, dark - they all go perfect on pretzels.

Emmy ~ They're definitely great to make with kids. Really easy!

Jeff ~ Easy is what I look for when I'm anywhere near a kitchen! These are exactly the kind of thing I like to "bake!"
