Easy Turtle Candies aka Poor Man's Turtles

I got this recipe from a friend on a message board a few years back. It is soooo easy to make and super yummy. My sister has a recipe called Poor Man's Eclairs and I joked with her saying these are Poor Man's Turtles.

Poor Man's Turtles


  • 30 rolo candies, removed from wrapper
  • 30 pecan halves, toasted (the original recipe didn't say to toast them, but I think they taste better)
  • 30 butter snap pretzels (they are square)

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. 
  2. Place pretzels on a baking sheet and place one rolo on each pretzel. 
  3. Place in oven and bake for about 4 minutes or until chocolate becomes shiny. 
  4. Remove from oven. Using a pecan half, press down on the rolo to smash it out to cover the pretzel. 
  5. Cool completely.

Yes, I remember the turtles. They sure are yummy!

Another one I thought of - the Oreo truffles.

Oh, I am stealing this recipe, definitely. I LOVE turtles, and I even made them one year, but they were such a pain!
