Need A Sweet Treat?

Posted By Alejandra Owens On April 20, 2009 @ 3:20 pm In Notebook | 1 Comment

It’s Monday…and it’s raining cats and dogs here in DC, so I need a sweet treat to brighten my day. I love to bake and have a serious sweet tooth so I thought I’d pass along this savory and sweet easy-to-make recipe for homemade turtles [1]! I found this on one of my favorite blogs Twig & Thistle [2].
What do you need? A bag of mini pretzels, pecan halfs and a pack of Rolos. Yes. I said Rolos.

1) On a cookie sheet, arrange the pretzels then place a Rolo on top of each one. Bake at 220 F. for 2 minutes.
2) Remove from the oven and immediately start placing the Pecans on top and pushing them down, squishing the Rolos.
3) Enjoy!
