Every year I make home made "Chocolate Turtles".
My friend Myra and I have been making them for over 10 years now.
This year we had a bit of trouble finding a day that worked for us, plus Myra wasn't feeling up to par.
So I told her not don't worry about it, we will try again next year :)
I have my own chocolate moulds and could have made them by myself, but I guess my heart just wasn't in it this year.
So I came up with a much easier idea.
I had pinned this recipe long ago, but when I saw that Lisa had made them, I just had to give them a go this year :)
These are so quick and easy.
Place a rolo on a pretzel…I used these fun square pretzels :)
After putting them in the oven for 3 minutes at 350, add a pecan to the centre and push slightly to squish the roll down.
Seriously, these taste as good as they look :)
I also put them in the freezer to solidify so I could package them up.
I know my dad and step-mom are going to be a bit disappointed that they aren't going to receive my turtles this year.
But that is how life works out sometimes.
Maybe I can trick them by putting the Rolo chocolates in these cute gingerbread boxes I bought from Dollarama, teehee.
I hope you all had a Creative Monday :)
