Merry Christmas, turtle style

Last year it was cake balls. This year, homemade turtles.
Here's how you do it.
You need some of these...
Some of these...
and some of these,
Word on the street was that ROLOs were like the cabbage patch dolls
of 20 years ago. Hard to find!
After checking 4 different places I got lucky and Hannah B.
brought me 4 bags all the way from Bloomington, IN
THANKS HANNAH!!!
they were going to be that much better cause the ROLOs came
from Tarjay!
Unwrap the candy (hardest part)
You could save the gold foil wrappers for your next decoupaging project,
I opted to throw them away.
Place pretzels on a wax paper covered cookie sheet and
set ROLO on top of each pretzel.
Put cookie sheet in a 250 degree oven.
Bake for 5 minutes.
Take out and immediately firmly apply a pecan (press it down a bit)
to each one.

Let cool completely. (the waiting is the hardest part)

ENJOY!!!
I got a little inventive and put another pretzel on top of some of mine
for a ROLO sandwich.




MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM ME AND MINE
TO YOU AND YOURS!!!!!

I thought about your Turtles when I was in IGA yesterday and found the bags of Rolos with the candy and nuts across the aisle from the deli. Haven't made them yet but I think I will tonight.
