I have a few goodies I like to make every Christmas. One of these is “Poor Man’s Turtles” My friend Dee taught me how to make these and since she doesn’t blog, I’m sharing it with you. These are super quick to make and are always a hit at gatherings! This recipe is perfect for kids to help with!
You will need:
Pretzel minis or snaps (the pretzel squares pictured)
Caramel Hershey’s Kisses
Spread your pretzels on a cookie pan in a single layer.
Unwrap Caramel Hershey’s Kisses and place on top of the pretzels. (This is by far the most tedious part. You could let your kids help with this part if they are able to unwrap the candy.)
Place the pan in a preheated oven for less than a minute. (Mine was preheated to 400 degrees from dinner, so I only had to place my pan in for around 30 seconds.) Watch the chocolate closely. If it looks like it is starting to get soft take the pan out and test it.
Place the pecans onto the Hershey’s Kisses. Don’t push too hard–you don’t want the caramel to squeeze out and make a mess.
Let the turtles cool. Enjoy!
