Naptime Nosh: Rolo Turtles

One of my favorite baking discoveries was that sometimes, in the baking aisle, you can find bags of non-wrapped Hershey Kisses. This saves mass amounts of time when making Peanut Butter Blossoms.

Sadly, the same cannot be said for rolos.

And when you unwrap candy, it seems you need to be paid for the job. In candy. One for me . . . one for the recipe. . .

Or maybe that's just me.

Another quick and easy, make-during-naptime holiday treat.

-Bag of rolos
-Bag of pretzel snaps (the square ones with a grid pattern)
-Bag of pecan halves

-Line a cookie sheet with foil
-Lay out the pretzels; about 50 will allow you to sneak a few rolos from the bag and still have anough
-Unwrap rolos and top each pretzel with a rolo

-Bake at 250 for about 4 minutes until the rolos look shiny, but before they lose their consistency
-Remove from the oven and immediately top each candy with a pecan half, pushing down to smush the rolo

Of course, you will find uses for the remaining pretzels . . .
