3 Ingredient Turtle Treats

. at . 6 comments

Need a “cookie” that can be assembled and baked in 7 minutes? Need one that has only a few ingredients? How about 3? This treat is typically known as Rolo Pretzel Turtles.


  • Miniature Pretzels: I used Synder’s Snaps. I liked the grid shape of the pretzel.
  • Rolos Candy, unwrapped
  • Pecan or Walnut Halves: I used walnuts because they were much cheaper and I like them better.
The bag of candy I bought had 48 individual Rolos. Therefore, I also needed 48 pretzels and 48 nuts.
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Place pretzels on the cookie sheet making sure to leave space between each one.
  4. Top each pretzel with an unwrapped Rolo.
  5. Bake 3 minutes at 350°. You do not want the candy to completely melt or burn.
  6. Take the cookie sheet out of the oven being careful to not let the treats slide into one another.
  7. Place a walnut/pecan half on top of each pretzel and gently press down. You do not want to push so hard that the candy flows out the bottom of the pretzel or gobs onto a neighbouring cookie. If they cool in this position, they will look messy and they will stick to each other.
  8. Cool on the cookie sheet or carefully transfer them to a rack.
  9. It will take at least 15 minutes for the treats to cool and harden. It will take 5 minutes if you put them in the freezer.
  1. Caramellos are not a good substitute for the Rolos. They do not melt well and the nut will not adhere to the candy.
  2. Unless you get the ingredients on sale, this is an expensive treat to make. But they are tasty, novel, and quick to make.

    Wow! Those look fabulous!

    An easy fall recipe we love is to make pumpkin pie filling as usual, put a vanilla wafer cookie in the bottom of a muffin cup, spoon the pie filling on top of the cookie and bake. Serve at room temperature with a dollop of whipped cream.

    Sounds yummy and so delish. I will have to make this. Because of having it at your home, Denise, I have made pumpkin pie filling and baked it without a crust. Do you know that this is one of Chip’s favourite things to eat! He begs me for it! I have pumpkin in the house and need to get busy baking!


  • YUM [and drool] : )

      I made the tutrles for two events I went to last week. I didn’t know that chocolate week was coming up! I will have to look at recipes to make something just for chocolate week, Nikki.
