Pretzel Turtles

Happy Holidays!

I swear after this post and one more, I'll lay off the sugary sweets for a bit and get back to regular programming {i.e. something a bit more savory}.  But with so many good holiday treats coming out of my kitchen, I just have to share!

These pretzel turtles are beyond fabulous and very easy to make.  I whipped them up during nap time yesterday in less than an hour.

You know me and 4 ingredients dishes or desserts - I'm all about them!  This probably doesn't even qualify as a "recipe" but I'll list out the directions anyway - I know many of you NEED directions {Mom, are you listening?}

Here we go.

What you will need:
Bag of circle or twisted pretzels
1 bag of wrapped caramels
48 pecan halves
1/2 pkg.chocolate almond bark

Cover a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper {spray with non-stick spray if using foil}. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  Lay pretzels on the foil and place a caramel on each.  Bake for 5 minutes or just until a bit soft {not melted}.  Remove from the oven and press a pecan halve into the caramel.  Melt the almond bark over low heat on the stove.  Once melted, take a spoonful of melted chocolate and pour onto the turtle.  Allow to cool, or place in the fridge to harden.  Keep in an airtight container and they will keep for up to a week.

But trust me, they will never last that long!

Oh my....these are heaven.  Sweet and salty.  The perfect tiny bite!

Now if I could just stop at ONE.  I'm taking a tray of these to our Christmas Eve gathering tonight.  Along with my hot reuben dip.  {I've been craving a good reuben for weeks}.

Merry Christmas!
