How To Make These Rolo Pretzel Turtles – Step By Step

Preheat your oven to 350F.

Unwrap your Rolos – try not to eat all of them. Place pretzels on the baking sheet in one layer. Top each pretzel with a Rolo. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes, until the chocolate just begins to melt.

The Rolo candy should be soft but not completely melted. Remove from oven, carefully use a spatula to lift the pretzels on cooling rack and immediately squish the Rolo candy with a nut. ooohlala! Watch the caramel ooze out!

An Easy Holiday Treat

Can You Freeze Rolo Pretzel Turtles?

You really don’t need to freeze pretzels covered in chocolate. They have a pretty long shelf life. Just keep them in an airtight container, a cookie tin, a glass jar, etc. Even pretzels with the Rollo and pecan melted on top should stay fresh for a couple of months if they are stored well.

Top Tips For Rolo Pretzel Turtles

  • If you’d like the chocolate to set, you can pop the turtles in the fridge.
  • Use parchment paper to avoid the chocolate sticking to the baking tray.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature (preferably in a single layer – the chocolate softens up just a little at room temperature).
  • You can top with nuts or get creative and use a piece of candy, sprinkles etc. – have fun!
