Rolo pretzel turtles are a the perfect salty, sweet and nutty combo. Made with pretzels, Rolos and delicious pecans, there is nothing better than these delicious treats! These pecan Rolo pretzels are delicious and easy to make!
Chocolate is definitely my favorite food group. Some of other favorite chocolate recipes that are easy to make are these amazing Homemade Brownies, Chocolate Chip Cookies and these simple Cake Mix Cookies.
Pecan Rolo Pretzel Turtles
I love the flavor of a pretzel Rolo pecan combination! The salty and sweet taste coupled with the crunchy/smooth texture – these homemade pretzel turtles are seriously delicious!
Not only are these pretzel turtles super tasty, they are so easy to make too! In fact, you can switch this basic Rolo pretzel recipe by using different candies and nuts. Hershey’s Minis, Snickers, walnuts, peanuts… I’ve never tried any chocolate pretzel truffles I didn’t LOVE! Today I am going to show you my favorite variation, the classic pretzel rolo pecan recipe. (Have you tried this? Get ready to fall in L.O.V.E!!!)
How To Make Rolo Pretzel Turtles
First, lay out your pretzels on a cookie sheet.
Next, place a Rolo candy on top of each pretzel. (Any favorite piece of chocolate should work well.)
Place your cookie sheet in the oven for just a few minutes until your chocolate barely starts to melt but still holds its shape. Pull the cookie sheet from the oven and immediately press the pecan into the chocolate.
Let it cool before popping into your mouth… if you can wait that long! 🙂
And that’s it!!!
Just a word of caution, these pretzel truffles are bite-sized, which can be very dangerous for treat-loving people like me! If I leave them out on the counter to cool, they have been known to disappear before I even know how many I ate- don’t say I didn’t warn you!
How Long Do Rolo Pretzel Turtles Last?
If you’re able to resist the temptation to eat them all at once, place any remaining pretzel turtles in an airtight container for storing. You can store them in the fridge or on the counter and they’ll stay fresh for several days. I prefer to leave them on the counter to keep the chocolate and caramel from getting hard. However, if they’re on the counter and you have kids, don’t expect these to last through the night.
