Turtle Candies

I'm currently under the weather and haven't been feeling well since last Thursday. In addition Christmas is quickly approaching and we are finishing up last minute tasks such as shopping and baking and are trying to spend time with family so posts this week will be sporadic but we will be back on schedule soon.

We love all of the wonderful desserts and candy at Christmas. This an incredibly easy treat to make and very yummy. In about 10 minutes you have a wonderful snack to munch on while spending a night watching Christmas movies.

Ingredients: Pretzels
Caramel filled chocolates (We used Dove candies but feel free to substitute another candy such as Rolos)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. And make a single layer of pretzels on the cookie sheet. 3. Put a chocolate on top of each pretzel. 4. Bake in the oven for about 3 minutes.
5. Gently push a pecan onto each candy. Don't press too hard or you will squeeze the caramel out. 6. Allow to cool.

We hope everyone is having an amazing week, that you find some time to relax and enjoy the holidays.

Happy baking,
Sunny & Star
