Ghetto Turtles

Posted by BPuhl on February 21, 2009

It’s the “turtles” candy snack thing-ey’s, but ghetto style. 

– Bag of pretzels
– Bag of Rolo’s candy
– Small bag of Pecan halves


Pre-heat the oven to 350
Line a cookie sheet with wax paper
Lay out individual pretzels with a little bit of space between them
Place one Rolo on top of each pretzel

Place the cookie sheet in the oven for 2-3 minutes, until the Rolo’s start to melt

Remove from the oven, and take one pecan halve, and press it firmly into the top of the Rolo, squishing it in with your finger

Serve warm

Last night when the cookie sheet came out, I had every intention of taking a picture to post alongside this blog…  but that would have required me stepping away from the turtles to get the camera, and there was no way that anyone else was going to wait on the chocolatey, caramely, salty, crunchy, nutty goodness that had appeared before them.  So maybe next time.  🙂

    Is it ghetto ’cause there’s a pretzel in it when there shouldn’t be? Why not just put the pecans on the cookie sheet and melt the rolos on to them?

    Clearly this bears further investigation.

    p.s. what’s with the french response form prompts? Either your blog is broken, or very, very advanced. ; )

      You know, leave it to you to ask complicated questions 🙂

      I thought it was ghetto because of the Rolo. The pretzel adds just enough crunch and salt to make them really, really tasty.

      No comprende on the francois… when I look at the page, it’s all in “American” 🙂

    Or maybe it’s just ghetto because that’s the way that Brian rolls.

    (“Rolls”, get it? Roll…Rolo’s…oh nevermind. :-D)
