Whole nuts (pecans, walnuts, cashews, any would work)
M n M's
Any other candy you want to use
white chocolate for drizzling over top (optional)
I have a big jar of holiday pretzels (trees, stars, bells). They are so cute. So I decided to use some to make some pretzel turtles. Of course you don't have to have holiday pretzels to make these, the knot pretzels work just great.
To begin, you heat your oven to 350, then spread out pretzels on an ungreased baking sheet. Top each pretzel with an unwrapped rolo, and bake for 3 minutes. This will make them soft and gooey, but they'll still be holding their shape. Remove from oven, and top with candy of your choice.
I topped mine with cashews, M n M's, and cinnamon gummy Santas. I have drizzled these with white chocolate before, but didn't this time.
These are wayyyyy easy. And I am a fan of salty/sweet.
