Pretzel Turtle Candies

It’s one week until Christmas! I know, it snuck up fast on me too! If you’ve been procrastinating on the holiday baking, or you need a fast gift for a neighbor, co-worker or mailman (perhaps all three)… don’t freak out. I’m sharing my favorite¬†homemade treat that takes almost zero effort and zero time to make. (Thank goodness¬†for Rolo and their genius recipe on the back of the bag!)

These Pretzel Turtle Candies are so simple and so festive. This year, I put them in a Christmas tin to share with my next door neighbors (and kept a few for myself!) Turtles are my absolute favorite candies, and the pretzel bite adds just the right amount of crunch to satisfy your salty-sweet cravings.

Ok, lets not waste any more time. You’ve got wrapping to do, I’ve got wrapping to do… and Santa waits for no man. Merry Christmas!
