Easy Turtles

When all of us got to work on Monday morning, we had a sweet surprise waiting for us in the breakroom.  One of our nurses, Sheri, had made divinity, fudge, cookies, and Easy Turtles.  We enjoyed all of our sweet treats but my favorite was the Easy Turtles.  I asked Sheri for the recipe for the Easy Turtles and she laughed as she said it was such a simple recipe.  Pretzels, Rolo Candy, and a pecan half.  I loved the combination of the salty pretzel and sweet candy.  I made my batch on a jelly roll pan - 11 pretzels lengthwise and 8 pretzels across for a total of 88 Easy Turtles. 

                                                            Easy Turtles

2 - 12 oz. bags of Rolo Candy
16 oz. bag of pretzel snaps
pecan halves

Spray jelly roll pan with Pam Spray.  Place pretzel snaps on pan.  Remove candy wrapper and place a Rolo on each pretzel snap.  Bake at 350 degrees for 3 - 4 minutes.  Remove from oven and immediately place a pecan half on each Rolo.  Gently press down.  Allow to cool completely and chocolate to solidify.  Place in an airtight container.
