Turtles by Iris for the Chocolate and Nut Lovers

My friend Iris made me these cute little rolo turtles.  Remember the old roles of rolos that were such a treat when we were kids? Take a mini pretzel and lay a rolo on it.  Place a whole pecan on top.  Place on a cookie tray with parchment paper on it. Put in preheated oven at 200 degrees.  Watch the turtles until you can barely press the pecan in the rolo.... about 5-10 min. You don't want the rolo too soft or it will melt, but just soft enough to gently press the pecan in a bit. Let cool on parchment paper.  Don't try to remove these when warm or you'll be cussin'. Who knew that a pretzel could play so many roles in Christmas treats?
