  • Bag of Rollo candy
  • Bag of small pretzel twists
  • Pecan halves


Place pretzels on a microwave safe plate. Place a Rollo on each pretzel. Put into microwave for a few seconds, then check to see if the Rollos have softened. If not, put them back into the microwave for a few more seconds. You'll have to play with the time since all microwaves are different. (You may be forced to eat your mistakes.)

When they are a bit soft, push a pecan half down on the Rollo. Allow to cool and for the Rollo to get firm again.

These make a thoughtful gift when placed in a pretty tin. They'll think you are the Candy Queen. You can reveal the secret or just smile and say it's a closely guarded secret.

This is a simple candy to make:



Place miniature pretzels on a cookie sheet. Place a Rolo candy (individual piece) on the center of each pretzel. Place the cookie sheet of prepared pretzels in a 200 degree F oven for almost 2 minutes until the candy starts to "cave in" while melting. Remove from oven and push a pecan half into each Rolo.
