Turtle Candy

Do you like turtle candy?  My mom told me about this recipe.  It is so crazy easy, Ester and Mabel made a batch together and then Mabel asked to make her own!

And for those of you who like just 3 ingredients (you know who you are *wink*) this is right up your alley!

Turtle Candy

(They taste just like a turtle candy.  Warning:  Very addictive!)


1 bag of round pretzels
1 bag of rollo candies
1 (2 cup bag) of pecans  *(we used halved pecans but I think they would be prettier with whole pecans)


1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease a cookie sheet.  *(We used round pie pans with parchment paper cut to fit.  Easier to cool off in the freezer or outside in the cold for a bit!)

2.  Place your pretzels on the pan.  Place one rollo, fat side down, on each pretzel.  Warm in oven for 4-5 minutes.

3.  Remove from oven and immediately press one pecan down into each melted rollo.  Cool either outside in the cold air for a few minutes or in the freezer.  *(We made sure ours were good and hard before layering into the cookie containers.)

You can also find this recipe on the back of the holiday rollo candy bags.  

We thought these would make a fun addition to the Christmas cookie plates we will be preparing this coming week.

P.S. ~  I am starting a new page at the top of my blog.  I am in the process of placing all of my recipes in one place and categorizing them.  Easier for you all to look up any that peeked your interest.  Right now, I'm constructing the Holiday section.  

Advent blessings!

  4. Stop already with all the yummies! I gain weight just reading your post! We made your Italian cookies and gave them away to CCD teachers, etc... I put half of them in the freezer with the intention of pulling them out on Christmas Eve. Well, guess what? They are gone!!!! Everyone just loves them. I am going to make another batch today and put them under lock and key! Merry, Merry, Jingle, Jingle.
