Rolo Pretzel Turtles are the easiest Christmas and holiday treat around! They use just 3 ingredients and barely any prep or cook time. They last for weeks so are perfect to make in advance. Make a big bowl of these festive treats for your next holiday party. 


  • 10.6 ounce bag Rolo chocolate candy, About 50 pieces in a bag
  • 50 small pretzels
  • 50 pecan halves


Oven Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 250°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Place pretzels on prepared sheet in one layer. Top each pretzel with an unwrapped Rolo.
  3. Bake 3 to 5 minutes until the Rolo begins to soften, but is not melted. Remove from oven and top with pecan half.
  4. Allow to cool completely. I like to place in the fridge for 10-20 minutes to fully set.

Microwave Instructions

  1. Line microwave-safe plate with parchment paper.
  2. Place pretzels on the plate in a single layer and top each pretzel with one unwrapped Rolo.
  3. Microwave at 50% power for 30 seconds or until the rolo has softened slightly. If needed, microwave for an additional 10 seconds.
  4. Carefully slide parchment paper and pretzels onto counter top. Top with a pecan half. Allow to cool completely. I like to place in the fridge for 10-20 minutes to fully set.


Toasted Pecans - I prefer to toast the pecan halves, but you can use the pecans as-is for an easier prep.
