12 Days of Christmas: Pretzel Rolo Turtles

Hey everyone! Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas baking extravaganza. For the first twelve days of December, there will be a new recipe posted — most of which will be specific to the holidays. December is one of my favorite months and I wish it lasted more than 31 days! Let’s start simple. Everybody loves pretzel Rolo turtles — and they are ridiculously EASY to make.

Pretzel Rolo Turtles
Print Recipe

1 bag square pretzels
1 bag Rolos
Pecans, M&Ms, or whatever type of candy you would like to use

1. Line a cookie sheet with tin foil and preheat oven to 300F.
2. Arrange the pretzels on the cookie sheet, fit as many on the sheet as you’d like. Place an unwrapped Rolo on top of each pretzel. Bake for 4 minutes or until the Rolo begins to soften (do NOT let it melt entirely!)
3. Remove from oven; top with M&M or pecans. Eat them warm or let them cool – your call!

  • I am having a girls get together this weekend and fully plan on whipping these together beforehand. Thanks for the wonderful reminder of such a delicious, addicting, and simple dessert! :)

  • I don’t know why I have never seen these Rolo candies before. A friend gave me some for Christmas so I went looking for a formal recipe tonight and I found you. I blog on wordpress and would like to follow you, but don’t quite see how. Please e mail me.

  • Thanks for the cool recipe. One of the ladies made these for a church event and used Christmas tree pretzel and Rolos and added red, white, and green sprinkles! They looked awesome! Anyone have an idea how to add the sprinkles?

    • I’m assuming you’d just add the sprinkles when the candy melts were still “wet.” Thanks for the comment — and I’m glad you like the recipe!
