My sister-in-law introduced me to these a couple Christmas's ago and I instantly fell in love. They are the perfect combination of salty, crunchy and sweet. And they're so easy to make! She made a special version for me using gluten free pretzels. It's really nice to be able to eat a gluten free variety of what everyone else has.
For such an easy dessert, these taste amazing! This is a great treat to make I f you're not much of a baker. Just assemble, warm in the oven and press down with a pecan while the chocolate is still soft. These turtle pretzels have become a staple Christmas cookie in our house!
Makes 30 pieces
30 Gluten Free Pretzels - knotted or square shaped (I used 1 small package of Glutino pretzels)
30 Pecan Halves
Lay out your pretzels on a parchment lined baking tray. 1 small package should contain roughly 30 pieces.
Unwrap Rolos and place one on each pretzel.
Bake at 300 degrees for around 4 minutes.
Working quickly, press 1 pecan half onto each softened Rolo.
Let cool in the fridge and store in an airtight container on the counter.
You can also freeze these for a couple months if you want to make them in advance.
