Pretty much the easiest dessert recipe ever- make these simple Rolo Pretzel Turtles. They are perfect for holiday treats!
I’m always looking for simple things to make for family and friends. This recipe only has 3 ingredients and are the perfect salty/sweet/crunchy combo. Yes they have been around for a million years and you might have already tried them.
How to make Rolo Pretzel Turtles
I found the recipe in an old cookbook and thought they’d be amazing. To make these treats, you only need three things:
- Pecan Halves
I don’t love chocolate (vanilla and caramel all the way) but I do love Take 5 bars and that’s what this recipe reminds me of. It’s got chocolate, crunch and nuts.
Gather the ingredients and unwrap the Rolos. Lay out some parchment paper on a baking sheet. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Place pretzels in lines on the parchment paper. Add Rolos on top of each one.
- Bake for 3-5 minutes and then remove from the oven. Lay pecan halves onto the warm Rolos.
- Let cool.
These yummy treats would be perfect for the holidays. I made a cute tag to go with them!

Thanks for posting these! They look easy and yummy, 2 of my favorite things! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
At Christmas I use red and green M and Ms instead of nuts. Halloween: Candy corn;’ July 4: red and blue M and Ms. You get the idea.mand I agree that the windowpane square pretzels,are best to use.
I’m like these other people. I have a bad left hip, a bad right knee, fibromyalgia and 3 herniated disks in my back. I can only stand for a few minutes at a time. Some really good, short recipes would be great for dinner. Thanks…you’re doing a great job.

Love to see short, easy recipes like this since I cannot stand long because of lots of back problems.
Pat Cool says
I need your easy and fast cook book. I have a bad back and cannot stand for long periods of time. This Pretzel rec. sounds great. going to try it as soon as i CAN GET THROUGH THE SNOW TO THE STORE..
I love all of these recipes. They are great and simple. Thanks and also affordable
I make them with milk duds, (i have done both) a little different but really good
What is the one other ingredient you would add to make them perfect?
Jeannette Hardy says

Our church FBC of Boaz is starting a Cowboy Church and we have snacks every Tuesday night. I always carry something finger sweet this Turtle Pretzels will be mine for this Tuesday night . Thanks so much. I would love to have several more recipes if possible.

These are yummy. I have made them before. If you use the square “waffle” pretzels, they are a lot less messy. Use the butter flavored ones for an even richer flavor. (If you can imagine that!) :-)
This sounds like a way to make them even MORE amazing! Have got to try them!!! Thanks!
Lydia Hairston says
