With Valentine’s Day coming up I decided to try out this recipe that came to my attention over the Christmas holidays, but I never got around to making it. It is a very easy candy treat that you can make up so quickly it takes hardly any time at all. Give them as gifts, or keep for yourself. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like the sweetness of chocolate and caramel combined with the saltiness of pretzels. Sooo good!
For these I used pretzels that look like the shape of a heart as the base, but you could use round pretzels, or lattice pretzels, just not long straight ones. You also need some kind of chocolate covered caramel candy, such as Rolo or similar, and pecan halves. ( Walnut halves would be ok, too). These chewy little treats are a lot like turtle candies.
Here’s how to make them….
CHOCOLATE CARAMEL PRETZEL DELIGHTS
Yield: Make as many as you want.
1. Heat oven to 350*F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil.
2. Place one pretzel for each treat desired on the prepared sheet. Top each pretzel with one chocolate caramel candy.
3. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes or until candy piece begins to soften, but not melt.
Remove from the oven. Top each with a pecan half and press down lightly.
Cool completely before serving or packaging.
