A Need for Chocolate!

My life has been chaotic lately. When life gets chaotic, I need chocolate. I got Nate to help me whip up these tasty morsels: Rolo Pecan Turtles. He's always game for making dessert!

The ingredients are simple: small pretzels, Rolo candies, unsalted pecan halves.
Start by laying the pretzels down on a lined (either parchment or a Silpat) baking sheet.

Get some little hands to help you unwrap the candy.

(Cute pic I had to include but my focus was a bit off. Oops)

Place chocolates on top of the pretzels. Place the tray in the oven at 350 degrees for 3-5 minutes or until the chocolate look like they are starting to soften. Take the tray out of the oven and squish the pecans down on top.

Cool. I find that it's best to stick the entire tray in the refrigerator for a few minutes for the chocolate to set.

Caution: These are so easy to make and highly addictive. Not a good combo during swimsuit season!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Unwrap your Rolos. Place pretzels on a lined baking sheet (either parchment paper or a Silpat) in one layer. Top each pretzel with a Rolo. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes, until the chocolate begins to melt. The Rolo candy should be soft but not completely melted. Remove from oven. Immediately squish the Rolo candy with a nut.

Wait until cooled before eating.
