Holiday trays: easy turtle candy

We made our holiday trays for neighbors last weekend, and I tried a couple of new recipes for the occasion.

First up:  homemade turtle candy.  These are simple and people love them, so they are a great addition to a dessert tray or to put in those little cello bags and tie with ribbon for a gift. 

  • Mini pretzels
  • Rolo candy
  • A topping of choice--I used cashews, pecans, and m&m's.
  • Chocolate (to drizzle over the top...this is optional)
Lay out the pretzels in a single layer on a cookie sheet and top each one with a Rolo.  I hate unwrapping all of those individual candies, but it's worth it in the end.

Heat the oven to 100 degrees, then shut it off.  Put the pretzel/Rolos in the oven for five to 10 minutes until they soften up.

Top each one with whatever toppings you choose.  This is sort of messy, so I cover the not so pretty parts with melted chocolate drizzle.
