Pretzel Turtles

This recipe is so simple that it takes less time to make these fun turtles than to write the recipe. This recipe is long due in my space, since I have made these for my son's 8 Birthday Party ( last year) as it matches with his Ninja Turtles Theme! I have witnessed this recipe almost 10 years ago from my wonderful colleague ( at E&Y) and friend then, but now Macaroon's Epxert in the town Chef Andrea Meyer. I have fallen in love with these cute turtle shapes, but after coming to know how easy it is to make, these kept happening in my kitchen. Here is the recipe, witness yourself how easy this recipe is, Njoy!

Pretzel Turtles

Square Pretzels - 20
Rolo Candy - 20
Whole Pecans - 20


  1. Pre-Heat the Oven to 325 F. First line the baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. Arrange the Square Pretzels with some distance a part. Place the Rolo Candy on top of each pretzel.
  3. Place the Baking Sheet in the Oven and leave it for 5 min ( keep the oven lid open) the Rolo Candy has to be just about to melt. 
  4. Take the Baking Sheet out and gently press the Pecan on each Rolo Candy. Let it cool for about 5 min , then the Candy sets along with Pecan on top which now looks like Cute Little Turtle. 
  5. Remove these from baking sheet and arrange them in a wide plate to show-off at the party or you can store them in air tight container for up to 7 days. 


  • if you notice they are about to melt before 5 min in the oven, then don't wait take them out quickly, you don't want them to melt and the caramel run over. That would be messy.
  • The hardest thing int his recipe to have the staple of SQUARE Pretzel, the regular shape pretzels are easy to find them in the store. But these SQUARE ones are always in limited quantity and hidden on the shelves, so you have to look real CLOSE. ( i got mine at Target)
  • You can compromise with regular pretzels as well, but the shape looks more like turtle only with Square Pretzel as base. ( more over i have learnt this recipe from Miss Perfectionist so no compromise there).
  • Should I use any other Candy? we are using the Rolo for one specific reason, that is the caramel in the middle of the candy. When you heat it, it becomes like icky sticky that holds the Pecan while the surrounding chocolate embraces the pecan and gives nice shape for this turtle. So you can use any candy that has caramel in the middle.
Doesn't it look like the Turtle Parade! :-)

will be back with another fun recipe,
take care until then!
