Salty ‘N Sweet

I’ve never been one to crave salty foods. I blame it on my massive sweet tooth. Most of my meals are rounded out with a sweet treat (Dove Dark’s and mini Butterfinger’s are my favorites!) rather than a bag of chips. However, the older I get, the more salt I crave. Salt bagels, soft pretzels, and pita chips are a few of my favorite foods that fulfill my cravings. Recently, I’ve had sweet and salty cravings at the same time. What’s a girl to do? Find a snack that caters to both, of course! At Christmas every year, one of my favorite desserts is Caramel Turtles. Reason being: it’s a sweet and salty treat, all in one. Salty pecans mixed with sweet caramels and milk chocolate, what‘s not to love? I’ll tell you what’s not to love: the time it takes to make them! So when my Aunt Martha told my Mom about an easy turtle recipe over Christmas, I wasted no time before trying them!

Easy Chocolate Turtles
One bag salted pretzel twists
One bag Rolos
One bag Pecans
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2) Line cookie sheet with parchment paper

3) Unwrap Rolo candies and set to the side in a bowl

4) Cover paper with pretzel twists
5) Place a Rolo on each pretzel
6) Place tray in oven for 2 minutes, or until Rolo’s have softened (don’t let them melt completely!)

7) Remove tray when softened, and press a pecan into each Rolo.

8 ) Place in fridge until hardened (approx. 30 minutes). Enjoy!

A salty, sweet, easy treat. Thanks, Auntie M!
