Those Pretzel Things


Last week, I posted a simple recipe for easy fabulous fudge. Who knew it would be such a hit? If there’s one thing I love it’s an easy recipe that everybody loves.

I already had this week’s Works For Me Wednesday post written when it dawned on me that indeed, I have one more culinary trick up my proverbial sleeve. So, I filed that post away and quickly threw this one together.

My really good friend, Becky who is a lot like a BFF, only she’s not (because she is TC’s BFF), hosts a highly competitive fun cookie exchange every year around the holidays. I had to miss out on the cookie exchange fun last year because I was invited to the White House had a prior commitment.

This year, I will once again compete for the cookie exchange crown because hello? Do you see the cute little princess up there?

I am a princess.

And that means, I clearly deserve the crown.

Now all I have to do is find the winning cookie.

This was not an official cookie exchange winner, but it’s a winner in my book because it fit my three criteria for any recipe – quick, easy, and easy.


50 Pretzel Squares

50 Rolo Candies (Unwrapped)

50 pieces of whole pecans

1. Preheat Oven to 250 Degrees.

2. Place pretzel pieces on baking sheet.

3. Top each pretzel with one rolo candy.

4. Place in a warm oven long enough to allow the rolo candy to slightly melt on top of the pretzel to hold it into place.

5. Remove from oven and place pecan piece on top.

6. Let cool and ENJOY!

    I also apologize for posting two comments on the contest page; I just reread it and realized there was a request for only one entry. So sorry! Delete the second one if you can.

    These candies are awesome! Just the right combination of sweet and salty. We’ve also made these with Hershey kisses and M&M’s. It’s fun to use the M&M’s with the holiday colors. I’ve also seen folks make them with school colors for a class reunion.

    I have to go to the store later today. Adding Rolo’s to the list…..

    MMMM… we make these every year for Christmas, except we top ours with a red or green M & M – it’s cheaper then pecans.
