I love pretzels so when I found this super easy recipe for homemade turtles with pretzels I had to try it. I tried two different kinds of caramels. I liked the softer Milk Chocolate Caramel melts from Superstore the best, my husband liked the Riesen caramels — each to his own! If you have a favourite chocolate covered caramel use it in this recipe!Turtle1

Start by lining a cookie sheet with parchment paper and placing the pretzels on it. I cut each of the caramels crosswise in half as they were quite large. I did try one as a whole but I found it to be just a bit to big.

Place the caramel on top of a pretzel and bake in the oven at 300 for 4 minutes. You want the caramel to soften so you can push a pecan into it immediately after you remove them from the oven. They must cool completely on the cookie sheet before you move them. I ended up putting my cookie sheet outside to speed up the cooling process as it was a cold day and I was not willing to wait to try them!Turtle5
