My mother gave me this recipe one day, and not only have I loved them, but everyone I know who's had one of these have loved them! So, what better way to share them with everyone than to make an Instructable on how to make them? They're sure to be a hit, and I call them Tiny Turtles. If you make some, make a lot. They'll go quickly and are highly addictive, not to mention they're extremely easy to make!
Step 1: Ingredients
Rolos (preferably the ones from the bag that you can find in the candy section)
You will also need a sheet pan, an oven, and some wax paper.
Step 2: Preheat Oven
Preheat your oven to 200F degrees.
Place wax paper on a sheet pan and spread out the pretzels over the wax paper.
Step 3: Unwrap
Unwrap the Rolos and place on top of the pretzels
Step 4: Place Pecans
Now, this step you can do one of two ways. You can either place a Pecan half on top of the Rolo, or wait until they come out of the oven. We prefer to place the Pecan on top of the Rolo before we place it in the oven.
Step 5: Put in Oven
Place the sheet pan in the oven and set the timer for 2 minutes.
Once 2 minutes is up, pull out the sheet pan. If you placed the Pecans on top of the Rolos before you placed them in the oven, simply and gently, press down on top of them slightly. If you didn’t put the Pecans on yet, now would be the time to do so, pressing down lightly.
Step 6: Let Them Cool
Now, all you have to do is let them cool. The fastest and easiest way I’ve found to do this is to place the sheet pan in the fridge. They’re amazing warm, but gooey. It’s your choice. Enjoy!
