I should just be able to write the name of these little goodies and be done with this post. Because the name - Pecan Rolo Pretzels - that's what they are. A mini pretzel topped with a Rolo candy, lightly melted in the oven, then a pecan squished on top. Chill until firm. There - recipe done.
But I also need to talk about how I ate so many of these...as I was making them. These are HIGHLY addicting - I mean - I ate one, and suddenly one became seven. Like that. Quick. Lickety split.
Make these when you have a lot of people around - and make sure THEY eat them all before you do. Otherwise you may be spending a lot more of your holiday worrying about what the numbers on the scale say.
These are perfect for gifting, super duper easy to make, and really fun for a relaxed dinner dessert. Knock yourself out - knock out a couple of dozen of these (I made 30 in less than 10 minutes). The most difficult part of this was peeling the darn Rolo candies.
Pecan Rolo Pretzels
Makes as many as you want (or until you run out of one or more ingredients. A bag of Rolos has about 56 of them in there.)
1 bag of mini pretzels (I used Snyders - super yummy and crisp)
12 oz bag of Rolo chocolates
1 bag of pecan halves
Preheat oven to 250. On a cookie sheet, neatly lay out pretzels, single layer. On top of each pretzel place an unwrapped rolo on top. Carefully place in the oven for 4 minutes. Remove. Immediately take pecan halves and squish them into the rolo, squishing the caramel out and making the pecan stick.
Cool for 15 minutes, and then place in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes, until the caramel hardens.
Pack up and give these away before you eat them all.
Packed up and ready to give, because I cannot have these around me. EVER.
