These have got to be the simplest treat ever to make and yet are SO VERY ADDICTIVE! Make sure that you make at least two batches... one to enjoy right away and another so that you'll have more for tomorrow or for that special event that they were originally intended for! I used the square grid-shaped pretzels with Rolos on top and to save time, I topped them with the pecan halves before placing them in the oven so that the pecans could toast slightly as the Rolos soften. After about 5 minutes in the oven, I just pressed down on each pecan which caused the Rolos to spread out perfectly over the square pretzel. They looked absolutely beautiful and presentable plus you can turn out hundreds of these quite fast. They just take a while to fully cool and set up but this can be remedied too by putting them in the refrigerator on an empty shelf to cool completely before storing them in plastic zip-top bags. These even taste great without the added nuts on top for those (especially kids) that don't quite appreciate nuts. Just flatten the heated Rolos with the back of a slightly oiled spoon to look like little kisses sitting on top. This will definitely be a staple for the holidays. Thank you for sharing this delightful recipe.Read More
It says "chocolate covered caramel candies" and the only ones I could find were Hershey's with caramel centers. Perhaps that was the problem? After 4 minutes at 300, the chocolate was not soft enough to push a pecan into and have it stay. 2 more minutes, then 2 more minutes. I finally tried turning up the temp. That caused the caramel to all ooze out and yet still the chocolate was not soft enough to hold the nuts. All of the nuts fell off, and I was left with gooey sticky caramel pretzels. If Dove chocolate caramels are the only product that will work (as recommended by some reviewers), it would be helpful to put that in the recipe. I may try this again if I can find those.Read More

These truly are delicious. I make mine in the microwave. I arrange a circle of 9 pretzels (topped with the Rolo) on wax paper on top of a small plastic cutting board. Microwave about 30 seconds, remove from the microwave and squish a pecan half on top of each one. Then I just slide the wax paper off on the counter so they can cool and do another batch. The chocolate should be soft when you squish the nut on, but if the caramel oozed out of the Rolo while in the microwave, cut the time down a couple of seconds. I make the whole bag of Rolos while I'm at it. The thing that takes the longest is unwrapping all of the candies!
Awesome. I love making these as Christmas gifts. They're a huge hit. Rolos are the best to use, as caramel Hershey Kisses get messy when you put the pecan on. Oh, and using roasted/salted pecans makes it too salty. Delicious!
I can't wait to make these this way, here is how I have done it.....use kisses instead of rolos and M&M's instead of pecans.....I bet the almonds will be delicious!
One of my students brought these to a potluck. They are wonderful! I made them 3 times between Christmas and New Years and everyone loved them. They are very quick to make. Just allow time for them to set up afterward. I also toast the peacans in a pan on the stove before I put them on the pretzel. It makes a big difference.
I make about 15-20 different Xmas cookies every year. This year, these cookies were the hit of them all. I used one bag of rollo candies and could have made another bag's worth easily. Everybody loved these. This will be one of the "regulars" of the cookie season.
This was a winning recipe in better homes and gardens a few yrs back. It is the best party snack, when you want just a little something!
Ok, here is the deal. I couldn't find the choco covered caramels, so my husband grabbed reg. caramels. We had hershey kisses, we had the reg. caramels, and we had the caramel dove chocolates. so i made them w/the dove chocos and the square waffle pretzels and i also made a batch w/the reg. caramels on the waffle pretzels with a hershey kiss pressed into the caramel(pointy side dug into caramel, very easy to do...just take the caramel off the pretzel so as not to crush and push in) I topped each w/ a toasted pecan half. The dove batch took 2 minutes and the caramel batch took 4. And, I have to disagree with alot of reviewers, we LOVED the REAL caramel with the chocolate kiss so much more that the dove ones. They were chewier, they were much tastier and funner to eat. The caramel dove chocolates have runny insides so they don't give this a real turtle quality, though they are good....just not as good as a real caramel. (they don't set up as good either) Try this my way with a plain caramel and a hershey kiss. YUM!!! just don't be afraid to really push that pecan into the caramel when they are done, and let the chocolate ooze all over. Perfection.
These are great and super easy! People absolutely love these. I gave them as gifts last year, and last weekend I cranked out 200 to give as gifts this year. I use rollos and holiday shaped pretzels and I heat them on foil. 3 minutes is plenty of time. Once they're cooled (an open window and a cold climate help, you could stick them in the fridge too) they easily come off the foil. I agree with the reviewer who said put the pecans on before heating. I also like to sprinkle a little cinnamon on them before putting them in the oven. It gives the pecans a great taste. I do some with holiday M & Ms pressed into the warm rollos- 2 or 3 on each, depending on how big the pretzel is and how much I want the rollo to spread. Also, I recommend unwrapping the rollos as you watch TV. I get out one bowl to put foil in and another to put the unwrapped rollos in and start unwrapping. Then I can just close up the rollo container and use them when I'm ready to make these. Oh, and don't forget to recycle that foil! And if anyone is wondering, a standard sized bag of rollos has approximately 50 candies.
This was so very good! Its very expensive also! This cost $11.50 for 35 pieces. I used Dove brand chocolate covered caramels ($4.49), butter snap pretzels ($1.99) and store brand pecan halves ($4.99)...but is was easy and very elegant looking. I'll make this again, but only for special occasions.
MAKE IT SIMPLE!!!! Put your square pretzel on bottom, a Dove carmel chocolate next, and then the pecan half. Bake for 3 to 4 minutes at 300* Put it in the refrigator immediately to cool for about 20 minutes. Don't make it harder than it really is people!!

Instead of Rolos I but the bag of Great Value Caramel Chocolate candy from Walmart. They work and taste just as good as the Rolos!
These turned out gorgeous! I used Snyder's square Butter Snap pretzels and Dove Milk Chocolates with Caramel. I used one 6 oz package of pecan halves, which took two 9.5 oz bags of chocolates. I did follow the suggestion of roasting the pecans with a little melted butter. I think 4 minutes in the oven is a bit too long... you run the risk of the caramel seeping out the bottom. I put mine in for maybe two minutes, at the most. As soon as the chocolate is a bit shiny, you can easily press the pecan half on top without smushing the caramel out of the candy. These looked and tasted amazing, thank you!
I can't stop making these!!!!!!!! So easy & so good! I have used regular pretzels, butter pretzels, Dove caramels & cheap wal-mart caramel cups, all with great results. I like to sprinkle a small amount of coarse sea salt over the top while still warm because I love salted caramels. You can't go wrong!
easy easy easy. i toasted the pecans too per another reviewer. one bag of snyders snap pretzels is about 4 bags of rolos and one 1# bag of pecan halves.
Great easy recipe. I can't attest to taste, but the Rolos were MUCH easier to work with than the Dove w/ caramel. I made these with two bags of Rolos and one bag of Dove and also experimented with two types of pretzels (Synder's of Hanover Mini and Butter Snaps). I followed the directions exactly (although I toasted the pecans first as other reviewers suggested). The Rolos came out perfect and I was able to push the pecan in gently so that it all stuck to the pretzel, and none of the caramel came out. The Dove did not melt enough, so I either had to push the pecan in too hard and ended up with caramel oozing out the side, or have the three ingredients not stick together. I tried a second time with the Dove leaving them in the oven longer, but that did not help either - the caramel ended up oozing out while in the oven and then I had a mess that I just had to throw away. If I was going to try it with the Dove again, I might try putting them in longer at a lower temperature, but since they taste so good with the Rolos and are cheaper to make that way, I don't think I'll bother.
OMG after making peanut butter buckeyes last night, late, late into the night :) I just wanted a no brainer, easy fast candy to do next on my list for my Christmas candies. I preheated my oven while unwrapping the rolos, slid my pretzels into the oven to warm them then stuck my rolos on and put a pecan half on top, then back into oven for the 3 min. Brought them out, recentered my pecans while pushing them into the rolos and they turned out great. Start to finish was even less than the ready time stated. Tip here: to cut some of the cost, buy the 3oz pkg of smaller pecan halves in the baking aisle. Its around $2.50 and I'll have enough for approx 3 batches of these candies from that small bag. Rolos big bags have about 50 pieces for around $3.00. Altogether, nice easy fun delicious candy
Wow! What a simple but tasty treat! I made them for Super Bowl Sunday. It was hard to choose a dessert that people would like while drinking beer, but this one is a hit! Everyone liked the sweet and salty factor.
These are the absolute best little treats in the world! I have been making them for years! Because they disappear so quickly, I always buy 4 bags of Rolos and make as many as I can! These are VERY easy to make and take no time at all. I find it easier to unwrap all of the Rolos first and then just line a baking sheet with as many square pretzels as you can and start topping them with the Rolos. I use a 200° oven and bake for 3-5 minutes. If you bake to hot and too long the Rolos melt too fast and squish out the bottom of the Rolo when you put your pecan on top and then later the chocolate gets a white film and they don't look so pretty! Great recipe but really 20 is not enough!!
These were delicious! I used the square pretzels and I agree with other reviewrs that the hardest part of these is unwrapping the candies! You can make so many in a short amount of time. This recipe is a keeper!
omg....these are sooooo addictive! I had to put them in the freezer and they are even better frozen!! HELP MEEEE!!!! lol!
These are addictive... I toast the pecans first (dip in melted butter, sprinkle with salt, put in oven for 5-10 min @ 350), which really enhances the nutty flavor. I used Dove Caramel chocolates and Snyder's waffle shaped pretzels and it works perfectly (there's no way to avoid having a little leakage of caramel though, when you press the pecan on top). Delicious recipe!
Everyone who has tried these has loved them. I made them for my daughter for Valentine's Day - and she was excited to learn how easy they were and make them herself a week later. I use an entire package of Rolos (~56). I also tried them with "peanut butter pretzel sandwiches" - yum! And I made them with caramels - no chocolate - for my chocolate hating son. Worked great, and he really liked them - but they need to bake ~8 minutes for the caramel to soften enough to press the pecan into it . . . I made these for Valentine's Day again this year. I gave some "naked turtles" [no chocolate] to my daughter's chocolate-hating bf [where do these people come from?], and got a text back that said "Barbara!!! The naked turtles are freaking delicious!!!" =D
So simple, yet so good. I followed another reviewer's advice and placed the pecan half on top of the caramel chocolate before placeing in the oven so that it would toast. I then pressed the nut into the softened chocolate. Worked like a charm. Thanks for posting!
I throw these into my holiday tins because they're always a crowd pleaser! I buy the UTZ holiday pretzels shaped like trees, stars, and bells and everyone thinks its amazing how they look like real mini turtles. I buy the candy "bar" rolos so you don't have to unwrap each individually- huge timesaver! I normally make 100/batch and I always wish I had made more!
These are simply amazing! I just top mine with an additional snap pretzel for two reasons...first, it's cheaper! Second, it adds more salt which is key here. My husband is working late tonight and I am so afraid I'm going to eat the whole batch before he gets home!
I used chocolate carmel cups from the $1 store, put thepecanhalf on top before baking, then just pushed 'em down after I removed them from the oven. These are turning out to be the big hit of my holiday treat offerings this year. Everyon loves the crunch of the pretzel & the sweet/salty flavor, & baking with the pecan on top gives a slightly ttoasted flavor - very good & couldn't be easier!
I toasted my pecans, used Snyders square pretzels and Rolo's. Easier than making jello. Hubby rates them a 6!
These were wonderful.
Thedr taste good; however they are not worth the price. Bag of Dove chocolate caramels (35 pcs) $4.49 Bag of snyder's snap pretzels (216 pcs) $2.29 Bag of small pecans $2.29 Total = $9.07 plus tax was about $10. of course i do have leftover pretzels to eat but don't really need them. so for 35 squares, this is an expensive recipe..next time i think i will stick with turtles.
We love this recipe. My husband thought we should try different candies so we tried a lot of variations on the turtle. My favorite used Mars bar minis with pecan. Try hershey Kisses with M&M's, Dove with pecans. He wants to try peanut butter cups with reeses pieces next! What a fun and easy recipe. Oh, we filled a large cooke sheet which came out to about 45 at a time. Thanks for the recipe.
Easy, fast and addictive!
As someone else suggested, I used the round pretzels with Rolos. After it's melted, I press a pecan on top of each one. It's a super quick, easy treat.
Ok, so I've made these twice in the past couple of weeks...YUM!! I did as others suggested and roasted the pecans with melted butter for about 10 mins...this is a must!! It really makes a difference in the flavor! Line your cookie sheet with foil, and carefully press the pecans in the pretzels because all the caramel will ooze out the back and make it difficult to remove them once cooled. Put in fridge for at least 30 mins...they are hard to chew when really cold, but taste wonderful when let set out a while at room temp. These last about a day in my house!!
So good! I also made some with a peanut butter M&M instead of the pecan. Kind of tastes like a little Take 5.
I made over 300 of these today for a large party. Today was the first time I had ever made these turtles. I used Dove chocolates filled with caramel. My suggestions for 1st timers: 1) Remove candies from wrappers a day or two before actually making the turtles. 2) Toast pecans the day before also...don't skip this step...they taste so much better when the pecans are pre-toasted. 3) I tested different oven temps. and found 275 degrees at 3 minutes to be the best. 4) Place pecan on top of chocolate piece BEFORE placing in oven. This way, when removed from heat, all you need to do is press down gently on each pecan. 5) Be prepared to store these in a cool/cold garage-type area after making. This is how they store best until consumed. 6) If making in a hot/humid climate, you will need to refrigerate these to "set" and then keep them in refrigerator....otherwise, they will be too messy. These turned out to be more expensive than I had originally planned. Also, very labor intensive since I had to make so many and had no help. Still, they are quite good to eat. If you use Dove dark chocolate caramel or Dove chocolate with peanut butter, less time will be needed in the oven......about 2 minutes.
Theses are wonderful, but for a change I use Reese's peanut butter cups, they have mini unwrapped cups, just fit. Then after I take them out of the oven while they are still warm, I put a green and red M and M on them. Fun and Christmasy.
These are so delicious and the easiest thing to make EVER! People loved these little treats! I could not find Dove chocolates and used Rolos. Update-Finally found the Dove chocolates and loved them even more. I have made these numerous times and they are going in a flash EVERY time!
This recipe is so SIMPLE. I love almonds and substitute them for the pecans. I also like to use the small square pretzels designed for dipping. The Rollos fit quite nicely on top of them.
Family loved these...couldn't make enough to keep them happy!
These EASY treats are a hit! I took them to a family gathering and they were inhaled! I felt guilty when I had to explain how easy they were! I will make these again and again.
These were so easy to make! No one could stop eating them at my housewarming party!
Small, but soooo tasty. Easy to make too.
Awsome! I made these for an office party and it was a big hit. Everyone asked for the recipe. I used the waffle pretzel, Dove's chocolate carmels and assorted premium nuts: cashews, pecans, almonds, etc... Also, before putting them in the oven, I topped each with the nuts . This allow the nuts to slightly roast for a few mintues while the chocolate softened. Once again, Awsome!
Subbed Kisses for Rolos.
Last year when I first made these, I decided to experiment with different types of chocolate covered caramels. The ones that turned out best by far were the ones using Dove brand chocolate caramels. In addition to fitting perfectly over the little square "waffle" pretzels, the chocolate was creamy and melted smoothly. The ones using Rolos had more of a chalky and crumbly texture and didn't melt uniformly. Of course they all tasted fantastic! But the Rolos ones didn't look nice like the ones shown in the photo, which may be important if you're taking them to a party.
easy and pretty tasty.
Wow! So easy and addictive. I tried using the Dove caramel filled squares, but Rolos work much better since the caramel filling isn't as gooey. I made a ton of these and topped with fresh pecans, cocoa almonds, roasted almonds and cinnamon M&Ms. The cinnamon M&Ms were mine and my kids' favorite :)
So easy and so good. I used the square pretzels and the dove chocolate with caramel. So much better than rolo's.
These are really good considering how easy and fun they are to make. The kids could easily make them. Just be sure to watch closely. I baked mine for 4 minutes and the caramel oozed out everywhere. Next time I'll check them at 3 minutes.
Had these at a party..these were amazing and make a great presentation. can kick it up by putting candied pecans on top.
Super easy recipe! The hardest part was unwrapping each candy! Read the reviews first and used square waffle pretzels & dove caramel candies. I made 60-70 of these which meant using two bags of candy. I also put the pecans on top before baking which made the recipe even easier. I stored them in the garage (in December) until making up my Christmas cookie plates, which worked out well. Thanks for the recipe.
These are great! I made mine with both Caramilk Buttons and Hershey's Caramel Kisses. I liked the Kisses better because they had more caramel in them. I also tried a batch with some Hershey's Cherry Kisses I had in the house and they were pretty tasty too!! Quick and easy recipe to make, makes great gifts!
These were really easy and really good! I used a caramilk bar, separated in to squares, with waffle pretzels. Perfect!
I used Riesen Chocolate Caramel candies that resulted in "turtles" that were cute but not good to eat. They were way too hard to eat - could have pulled a loose tooth out easily!
so easy and oh so good. i used kroger store brand square pretzels, square dove caramels, and put a holiday colored m&m on top. everyone loved them
These are so easy and SO GOOD! The entire family loved them. I made 1 batch with glazed pecans and another batch with red & green peanut M&M's on top. They were the first thing to be eaten from our Christmas Eve snack table.
Made these for my family last Christmas, and they were a huge hit! I'll definitely be making them again. Thanks for sharing!
These are fantastic. One of the things that makes them nice is that you can make any amount you wish in minutes. (If you are dieting, you don't need to have a lot of leftovers to temp you.) We are going to a play this evening with friends. One of the attendee is fixing dinner and asked me to bring dessert. Since most people do not want dessert immediately after dinner. I fixed a bag of rolos, giving me 59 pieces. I divided them into six decorative boxes and will wrap with ribbon. Each person will have his/her own box, and thus, can have a dessert right after dinner, during intermission at the play or tomorrow. I did something similar last month with different candies, and it was a big hit.
These are GREAT! So easy and quick to make. I was worried that the carmel would goo out when I put the pecan on top, but it didn't at all. Thanks for a great recipe!
These didn't work out for me. I used the Dove caramels and baked them with the pecan on top. It took 5 minutes in the oven before it was soft enough to push on the nut. Then when I pushed it down the caramel squished out all over everything, making a sticky mess. In the end I was left with a pretzel topped with a smashed and obviously purchased piece of candy on top of it. After they cooled some of the nuts fell off. These are easy to make but not the effect I had hoped for. I decided not to add them to my holiday assortment. Thought about sending them with my husband to work but decided they weren't worth 92 calories and threw them away. I wouldn't make them again.
I have never seen this recipe on here before but I have been making these for years. They are such a big hit. I'll buy Celephane (sp) during christmas and give them away as goody bags.
This is an absolutely AMAZING candy! I use square pretzels and caramel Dove chocolates; I also put the pecan on the chocolate before I bake them and then tap them to set them in place. I like the slight toast it gives to the nut.
I followed the Rolo suggestion, very useful. I also used graham pretzels instead of regular ones, and loved them.
These not only taste delish but they are easy to make and they look store bought! I made mine two ways: one with the "tie" pretzel and rolos and then I made a batch with the square "snaps" pretzel and Dove chocolate covered caramels. The square with the Dove was much better quality and looked better as well...just BARELY press the pecan onto it because the caramel will ooze out! I have already bought the ingredients to keep on hand so I can make these anytime. You will NOT be disappointed in these turtles. OH-- I also drizzled mine with white chocolate and that seemed to dress them up.
Super-easy-peesy cookie that my kids can help with. We'll use red & white M&M's for Val Day this year as gifts to neighbors & teachers.
Taste wise it worked best with Dove Chocolate for me, you have to be careful not to press too hard into the chocolate or else all the Caramel Squeezes out. I also tried it with Riesen Caramel covered chocolate which worked better during the assembly phase but I don't care for how that kind sticks to my teeth.
This was is such a wonderful little treat that takes no time at all to make. I had to hide them from my husband because I made about 3 times the size of this batch to bring to a large gathering. They were the first thing gone! I used both rolos and the caramel kisses to see which would work better and I have to say I will only use rolos from now on. They aren't as messy. Also, for some of the treats I substituted M&M's for the pecans. They were very good and colorful too! I will definitely make again.
These were really good, really easy and loved by everyone who enjoyed them! I used pretzel crisps, Ghirardelli caramels and 3 pecans per pretzel. They rocked!
absolutely wonderful! there goes my diet. :)
These were mouthwateringly good. My husband devoured them in a minute. I used the little waffle style pretzels and Hershey's Bliss dark chocolate caramel. So easy and so good. I'm taking them to two different parties this weekend.
More yummy and pretty when you use white chocolate covered pretzels instead of plain. Toasted my pecans and with kids in mind, did some topped with M & M's too.
I have made this recipe about three times now over the Christmas and New Year Holidays and everyone loves it! It is so easy to make and it turns out great every time. I took suggestions from other reviewers and toasted my pecans with a little butter in the oven for a few minutes. I also used the dove caramel chocolates instead of the rolo's then popped back in the oven for a couple of minutes. They turned out wonderful will use this recipe many more times :)
So easy & yummy! These are great for the kids to make!
Here is another 5 star review for this fantastic recipe. I used a number of the reviews recommendations: square pretzels, Dove chocolates filled with caramel, toasted the pecans after tossing them in a little butter. I also drizzled a little semi-sweet chocolate on top for a beautiful finishing touch. My husband took these to a New Year's Eve party and even though there was too much food and tons of left overs, every one of these babies got eaten!! There are the perfect bite size treat.....sweet, salty, chocolate....perfection! Thanks for a great and easy recipe!
Easy to make. Good
I didn't have the Rollo or Dove candies so I used ordinary caramel candies, cut them in half lengthwise, and pressed four Ghiradelli double chocolate chips (extra large) into the caramel halves (upside down so the flat bottoms were on top). Bakes three minutes and topped them with pecans. Worked like a charm. It fit perfectly on the mini-pretzels, look cute (four loops of chocolate around the pecan), and taste great.
Oh so good! Was looking for something yummy but mess free and easy to make with my son. This was it! He had a blast making them and everyone loved them.
When they cooled they were so chewy we couldn't eat them.
Holy smokes are these good. I tried these with Rolos and then with caramel filled Hershey Kisses. I think both are good but the Hershey Kisses are better.
I recently decided to switch the candies for caramels, and I don't recommend it! The caramels were too hard once they cooled. However, I have tried the recipe again, following it to a T, and they were awesome! Yummy and super easy!!!
You must make this! It is so easy and so impressive. I drizzled them with white chocolate that I colored red and green for Christmas and brought them to a party. I heard friends commenting it was the best thing there! I used the square snap pretzels and of course toasting your pecans is a must. Everyone always wants to know how did you get the caramel in the middle?? So fun!!
They are too easy to be as yummy as they are! Thank you!
Made these at Christmas and gave as gifts in food baskets. This is really nice and alternative way for me to make these than the traditional melting chocolate for molds. Very simple and good.
I doubled the recipe and made these for a friends baby shower. They lasted 20 minutes, and I wish I had made more. Everyone raved about them and I couldn't believe how easy and quick these were to make....... (I used Rollo candy)
I made these at Christmas and gave them as gifts to my neighbors. Everyone raved about them and asked for more. I had a hard time making enough to give away because I kept eating them.
These were so easy to make, and my friends loved them. I used Dove caramel-filled candies. Yum.
Easy and good.
I should knock this rating down a few stars for what these delectable little treats are doing to my hips! Although not much of a sweet lover, I cannot stop eating these. I used the Rold Gold round butter mini pretzels and toasted the pecans in the heated oven before putting in the pretzels. These turtles are so easy and everyone seems to love them. Thankfully I used the entire bag of rolos and would have been devastated had I only made 20. The recipe calls for 20 pretzels for 20 servings but nobody is going to stop at just one!
Love these! Made them for neighbors last Christmas! We use Rolos and I also melt some white chocolate and drizzle that on top of each turtle. Yum! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Yummy little bites and super easy. A great recipe for the kids to do with you. I toasted the nuts first, to bring out more flavor.
Oh my - way too good! We did a taste test with Rolo and Dove Caramels and preferred the Dove. Agree with earlier reviewer that said unwrapping the foil is the hardest part of the recipe!
You're going to need a lot more rollos, pretzels, and pecans! These are so good & are gone in the blink of an eye at any gathering. They do take a while to cool, so be sure to have a space ready in your fridge or freezer for them & make them at least 24-48 hours in advance.
Love this recipe!! So easy and absolutely delicious! The salty pretzel with the creamy caramel and chocolate is a perfect combo. I make this year round but especially during the holidays. They make perfect homemade gifts for teachers! Thanks!
These are almost too easy. The most time consuming part is unwrapping the candy. I popped the candy topped pretzels in the oven, took them out as directed 4 minutes later and pressed a pecan on top of each one. They are delicious. Crunchy, salty, sweet. YUM!
SO easy and absolutely WONDERFUL! I doubled the recipe for the eight women in attendance at my bookclub and out of the 40 it made, all but 5 were gone! I used Rolos on square pretzels. Everyone raved over them!
I made these as gifts to give at Christmas...they were super easy and delicious.
I made 9 different candies and cookies for Christmas - these were a real favorite. I will make often and for sure every Christmas.
