The Best Turtle Pretzels Recipe

This turtle pretzel recipe is so fun to make that my kids jumped in to help out this year.  I love recipes that have simple ingredients and can be made with the littles.

Too busy to make these right away? Pin this for later! Pin this post to your favorite recipe board on Pinterest and it will be waiting there when you’re ready.

These turtle pretzels are so easy to create and are so much fun for kids of all ages to make. We also love these Halloween Chocolate Covered Pretzels and Reeses Chocolate Dipped Pretzels too!

Tip: pretzel rods, large pretzels, pretzel twists, pretzel sticks or square pretzels can be used instead of mini ones.

Turtle Pretzels Recipe

Directions:

  1. Simply cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place pretzels on the sheet.  
  2. Top each pretzel with an unwrapped Rolo candy.  
  3. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 3-5 minutes.  Tip: watch them carefully!  You need the Rolo to be just starting to melt.  
  4. Upon removing from the oven immediately press a pecan into the top of the melting Rolo. 
  5. Allow them to cool down and voila!  Delicious sweet and salty turtle pretzels!

TIPS FOR MAKING THESE EASY PRETZEL TREATS:

  • Lay the chocolate covered treat on a parchment lined baking sheet for easy moving and transporting before the chocolate has hardened.
  • Place the chocolate in the fridge or freezer to completely cool before serving.
  • Store these yummy treats in a large freezer bag or airtight container for up to one month at room temperature. They can also be stored in the fridge to prevent the chocolate from melting or in the freezer for months.
