Easy Pretzel Turtles Ingredients: small pretzels Rolo candies – one bag has about 55 candies Topping options: pecan halves, peanuts, cashews, m&m’s, etc. Optional: almond bark or white chocolate for drizzling This is easy as can be! Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Place pretzels on a parchment lined baking sheet. I like to use parchment paper for easy handling, but you can also put them on foil or directly onto the cookie sheet. Unwrap your Rolo candies and place one on top of each pretzel like a cute little hat.
Don’t they look like they’re just standing there waiting for an order? At least someone in my house stands at attention because heaven knows my children don’t! Place pan in the oven for 3-4 minutes. Any longer is probably too long. You just want the chocolate on the outside to look glossy and melty, but they should still hold their shape. Remove pan from oven and take a pecan and gently press it right into the center of the chocolate candy.
Keep going and be filled with joy each time you feel that gooey caramel squish out underneath your fingers. It’s one of life’s little pleasures.
Here’s where you can be creative. Use whatever nuts or candies you like on top. I love cashews and peanuts (I used honey roasted peanuts here). And for kiddos and those who can’t eat nuts or don’t like them, M&M’s make a great little topper, or those mini Hershey’s kissables are cute too. I always throw a few of those in for color and because the kids like them. And if it’s not Christmas time, use the colorful ones- they’re adorable!
If you want to get fancy you can give them a little drizzle of almond bark or white chocolate. Just melt some in a plastic baggie and nip the corner off to drizzle. A little goes a long way; I used a half a square of almond bark for half a batch and had plenty left over.
Now definitely do yourself a favor and eat a few of these babies warm off the pan. Mmmm… Wait for the rest to cool and harden before you pack or plate them up. I pop them in the fridge because I stink at the whole patience thing.
These are so cute that I love to package them in little peep-window boxes. You can find boxes like this at craft stores like Micheal’s.
Or just pop them in a bowl or on a plate for a party. Either way they’ll be gone fast! And just look how fancyschmaltzy they look. No one has to know you whipped them up so fast.

Valentine Hearts a simple kid friendly treat I am always looking for things to cook with my 3 year old grandson. This is definitely something he would love to help make. Only takes a few minutes and 3 ingredients: flour tortillas, melted butter, decorating sugar crystals.
Fold the tortilla in half. Cut a large heart shape. You can cut another heart about 5/8" in from the outer edge and then another small one. You can make a scalloped edge if you like. Use your imagination and make them however you want and whatever size you want. Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper or waxed paper. Place hearts on the sheet. Melt butter in microwave and brush generously over the top of the hearts. Sprinkle with decorating sugar crystals. Bake at 350 degrees for just a few minutes. The longer you bake them, the crispier they will be. Best Little Smokies a fantastic appetizer for "Superbowl"
