I have gotten this complicated recipe about 10 years ago when I helped my girlfriend Sue prepare for her massive Christmas Party. Sue’s boyfriend was a chef at one of the premier restaurants in Chicago so their annual Christmas Party was never ordinary, entertaining over the course of the evening massive amounts of people. I don’t know the number but I bet it was over 300. In any case we made a lot of these treats and I took some home, where my family made them disappear in 3 seconds. Since that day I make them every year for Christmas and I love them just the same. Thank You Sue. I would most likely make them more often but I am not sure if my waist line will let me.
This is such a simple treat to make that I would not be lying if I told you that my 3 year old did most of the work.
All you need is a bag of Snap shaped pretzels (square ones), 2 bags of Rolos, 6 oz of pecans and a lot of strong will. This will make about 100 pieces.
Give or take a couple, since Rolos are so good. In case you never had them they are chocolate covered caramels and they make the best additions to any dessert.
Use your kids to unwrap the rolos, hopefully not eating them all, while you preheat the oven to 350 deg.
Nothing beats a sugar high first thing in the am.
On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, place the rolo candy pieces on top of the pretzels
When the army against skinny waist is ready
place them in the oven and cook for about 5 minutes until they look slightly glossy
In the meantime prepare the rest or give your daughter scattered pretzel pieces and watch as the neurotic in her places them in a perfect line. I wonder who she got that trade from?
Remove treats from the oven and place a pecan on top pushing it into the chocolate.
Wait till they cool off and the chocolate hardens before digging in. To speed up the process you can place them in a fridge for a few minutes.
Dig in, Enjoy, Share. They really are great tasting easy to make and highly addictive. Who can say no to the salty, sweet, gooey, crunchy and nutty flavor.
