Pretzel Turtles

/

I've mentioned my extreme love of caramel before right? Well, I'm always looking for ways to include it during my holiday baking extravaganzas.

For some reason turtles were never my go-to choice for a bite-sized dessert. They're not very popular around here and I'm not quite sure why. I think I was at least over 18 before I ever had one before and couldn't believe people weren't gobbling these up by the handfuls.

If you're looking for a quick and easy treat to whip up for the holidays, I definitely think you should go this route. It took maybe 20 minutes from start to finish and that even allowed for the chocolate to set up in the fridge.

Ingredients:
    • 24 whole pretzel twists
    • 24 Kraft caramels, unwrapped
    • 24 whole pecan halves
    • 8 oz. milk chocolate
Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 325.
2. Place the pecan halves in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast for 5-6 minutes in the oven. Allow to cool on a plate.
3. Line the baking sheet with a silicone baking mat. Arrange the pretzels in an even layer on the pan and the place a caramel on top of each pretzel. Bake for 5-6 minutes or until the caramels are just softened, but not melty.
4. Quickly place a pecan half on top of each caramel, pressing it down into the pretzel.
5. Melt the chocolate and drop tablespoon sized dollops onto the silicone baking mat. Spread evenly into a circle and press the pecan/caramel/pretzel combination directly into the center. Repeat with remaining pretzels. Allow to cool completely before serving.
