Tools used to make this Pretzel Turtles recipe
Silicone Mat: I use a silicone mat on my baking sheet practically everytime I bake. The mat makes for easy cleanup and my foods don’t stick to the pan.
Baking Sheet: A nice big baking sheet is a must have for any kitchen. This half pan sheet is large than a regular cookie and works great for anything you’re baking.
- 20 mini pretzels
- 20 Rolo candies
- 20 pecan halves
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
- Arrange 20 pretzels on a parchment lined baking sheet and place a Rolo on top of each pretzel.
- Bake for 4 minutes, remove from oven and press a pecan half into each soft Rolo.
- Let set until firm.
