Super Simple Christmas Candy!!

Here is my recipe for Gayle's weekly recipe swap. I really do hesitate to call this a recipe, as it's one of the easiest things I've ever made! But just in case you've never seen it done or thought to do it, I'm posting it. These are a very quick and easy Christmas candy and you can do all sorts of embellishments!

Easy Turtles


Small pretzel twists
Rolos, caramel Hershey's Kisses, or other caramel-filled chocolate candy
Pecan halves
Sprinkles, colored sugar, or melted white chocolate, optional

Lay pretzel twists on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. On top of each, place one of the candies. Put in a 300-325° oven for about 5 minutes, until the chocolate is melty. Remove from oven and sprinkle with candy or sugar if desired, then press a pecan half down on the top. Now you can also drizzle on melted white chocolate if you want, or embellish however you see fit!

These are E-A-S-Y, and very yummy, and they look great on a goodie tray! And my suggestion is to go to Walgreen's this week and get the Caramel Kisses, currently on sale 4/$10, with a $5 rebate. Use the recent $1.50/3 coupon and then get the Walgreen's gift card so you end up paying about $3 for all 4 bags! Enjoy!!!

We made these today with the caramel-filled Kisses and they were perfect!!!! I let my 8-year-old make one batch by herself (48 to 49 per bag of Kisses). As they came out of the oven, we sprinkled them with colored holiday sugars and then popped on the pecan - soooo good and super-super easy!
