Rolo Turtle Candies

These are incredibly easy and very addictive. I made them for a book club treat last night. To make them more turtle-ish you can press pecan halves onto the tops rather than m&ms, but I forgot to get m&ms it was.

Rolo Turtle Candies

a package of Rolo candies (around 50 Rolos or more if you want a larger batch)
a bag of square grid pretzels (I think they are called pretzel snaps)
m&ms, mini m&ms, or pecan halves for topping

Line up pretzels on a foil covered cookie sheet. Place one unwrapped Rolo in the middle of each pretzel. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 3 minutes or until Rolos are just beginning to get soft. Take out of oven and working quickly press m&ms or pecan halves in the top of each Rolo and push down a little. Let them cool on the cookie sheet for a while, if you need them to set up faster you can pop them in the fridge for a bit.
