Rolo Pretzel Turtles

Salty and sweet is definitely one of my favorite flavor combinations and this recipe is possibly the easiest ever, three ingredients, no mixing, and only 2 minutes baking. With how easy this recipe is, I’m not entirely sure it can be called a recipe. Still, it is super tasty and festive for the holiday season. If you want to make these any other time than around the holidays, just substitute the m&ms for pecan halves.

If you are not a fan of caramel, you can total substitute the Rolos for another chocolate candy, a Hershey Kiss or a mini Reeses Peanut Butter Cup. The key with these pretzel turtles is to use the grid type pretzels so the empty space between the pretzel isn’t large.
