Equipment

  • baking sheet
  • rubber spatula
  • Microwave-safe bowl

Ingredients

  • 48 mini pretzel twists
  • 48 Rolo candies
  • 48 pecan halves
  • 1 ½ cup white chocolate chips
  • Valentine’s sprinkles

Instructions

PREHEAT OVEN AND PREP PAN:

  • Move oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 275 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

ASSEMBLE CANDIES:

  • Arrange the pretzels on the baking sheet in a single layer.
  • Place one Rolo candy on top of each pretzel.

BAKE:

  • Bake in pretzels and Rolos in the oven for 3-4 minutes or until the chocolate softens and starts to melt.
  • Remove pretzels from the oven and press one pecan onto the top of each candy.

MELT WHITE CHOCOLATE CHIPS:

  • Melt white chocolate chips and oil in a microwave-safe dish on 50% powder for 1 minute. Stir and then cook at 50% power for 30-second intervals until melted.

DECORATE TURTLE CANDIES:

  • Drizzle melted white chocolate over the tops of the pecans.
  • Add sprinkles on top quickly before the chocolate cools.

COOL AND SERVE:

  • Transfer Rolo pretzel turtles to a cooling rack and cool completely. Serve.

Notes

  • Melting chocolate disks of any color can be used instead of white chocolate chips.
  • Be sure not to use unsalted pretzels; the turtles taste much better
    with the sweet and salty combination.
  • When drizzling the white chocolate, you can spoon the melted chocolate into a sandwich bag and cut one of the corners off to make your own piping bag, or you can use a spoon.
  • To cool the turtles faster, you can put them in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
