Hi, what are you looking for?


Turtle Bites

  • 50 mini pretzels
  • 50 pecan halves (or plain M&M’s)
  • 1 bag of Rolo candies (11 oz. bag)

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place pretzels on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Unwrap Rolos and sit on top of the pretzel. Bake for 3 minutes so candy will be soft. Press into pretzel. Then can press in a single pecan, plain M&M or a Reeses pieces. Let cool about 10 minutes. This also makes a great treat to put in a tin and give as a sweet gift.

If you don’t like pecans or have a nut allergy, replace it with a M&M for a colorful substitute. (Makes 50)
