These turtle pretzels are so easy to make and super yummy!! The combo of salty crunchy pretzels with chocolate and creamy caramel is one of the best tastes ever! And the finishing touch is a perfect pecan half.
Three ingredients is all it takes to make these little gems of deliciousness. Just grab your favorite brand of mini pretzels and some chocolate covered caramel candies and some pecan halves. That’s it! I told you these were super easy!
Just line your pretzels on a parchment lined baking sheet, as many as you want to make. Then top each pretzel with a chocolate covered caramel candy, I use Rolos. Place the sheet pan with the pretzels and chocolate in a oven that is preheated to 350 degrees and just leave in for a few minutes, just long enough for chocolate to soften but not melt completely. Remove from the oven and top each pretzel with one pecan half. Let cool.
This is one treat my kids can make with minimal supervision which is great because they enjoy helping me out in the kitchen. I love having the kids in the kitchen with me and these turtle pretzels are great when I want to let the kids make something in their own. The only thing they might need help with is removing the warm sheet pan from the oven.
I really like making these turtle pretzels around holiday time because they are so fast to make and they add that special touch to any dessert table. They also make great little treats to give away! I usually like to make several types of cookies and some fudge and then throw in a few of these turtle pretzels and voila!! The perfect little gift! Everyone always appreciates homemade treats, especially when it comes from the heart.
So if you are looking for a quick and easy treat to whip up with the kiddos that’s yummy, you have come to the right place!
