Caramel Turtle Pretzels

12 Days of Cookies!

Day 12
How can you beat a delectable treat that only takes three ingredients to make? Pop these in the oven for a minute or two and in no time, you'll have a cookie platter worthy treat. They're always a party favorite!
Caramel Turtle Pretzels
20 small mini pretzels
20 chocolate covered caramel candies
20 pecan halves

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).

Arrange the pretzels in a single layer on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Place one chocolate covered caramel candy on each pretzel.

Bake for 2 minutes or until chocolate looks shiny and is slightly melty (be careful, if the chocolate gets too melty it will run all over the place and when you put the pecan on top the caramel filling will ooze out). Remove from oven. While the candy is warm, press a pecan half onto each candy covered pretzel. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

I use Dove chocolate covered caramels. So yummy!
Square pretzels work well with the Dove chocolate.
Toast the pecans to bring out the flavor.
To jazz these up you can drizzle milk or white chocolate over the top.

By the way, how did these turn out when you made them? Did you use Dove chocolate?

These are so delicious! A definite hit. I made 40 for a group of five of us, and they were gone in about 15 minutes! Definitely toast the pecans before, and use parchment paper (which I didn't)!
