It's the last minute before Christmas and you're heading to a friend's house but don't have time to cook but need something for a hostess gift, or you just need to make one more dessert for the relatives and you've run out of steam, or you're just plain lazy. Have no fear. Here's a recipe that will take you minutes and make you look like a culinary rock star.
Rachel, I got this recipe from Susan — she of fake cake fame, which kind of makes me see a pattern here — who brought a candy box of this to dinner on Saturday and it was literally all gone before Peter could even take one bite. I didn't even have time to take a picture so you're just going to have to use your imagination. Trust me. Make these and then try to just eat one.
Ridiculously Easy "Turtles"
bag of Rolos
bag of small pretzels (in holidays shapes, which make this candy look even more special)
bag of pecan halves
Heat the oven to 250 degrees. Place the pretzels on a cookie sheet and place one Rolo on top of each pretzel. Bake in the oven for 3 minutes. Take out, schmoosh a pecan onto the partially melted Rolo. Cool. Serve and prepare to become famous.
