Yes how sad is that I do not even know what the official name for these are… we just call them Granny’s Pecan Rolo Pretzel Christmas Treats.  Because Granny makes them every Christmas and we look  forward to this delightful treat!  I have to admit that most Holiday goodies I can easily eat one and walk away with no temptation to over eat…… BUT these, well they are my weakness, and no joke I am pretty sure I could eat the WHOLE PAN.

The kids love to help make these, and it goes a lot faster with all their little fingers unwrapping the rolos.

To make these you need

  • about 50 small pretzels
  •  50 unwrapped rolos (one bag)
  • 50 pecan halves
  • large pan
  • preheated oven at 300 degrees

Place pretzel down first, then the rolo, place pecan on top.  Place in a 300 degree oven for 1-2 minutes  NO LONGER as soon as the rolos start to look shinny take them out.  You do not want to melt them, just warm them up.  Once you take them out of the oven push the pecan down to “smoosh it all together”.  Let them cool and enjoy (or you can try one while they are still warm… but watch out you may end up eating the whole pan).

just got some of these today from my husbands work.. they are good! we had never heard of them until today... !


You can do something similar with round small pretzels and Hershey's kisses. Put each kiss on a pretzel, put in 300 degree oven for just a few moments till slightly melted. Once out of the oven put an M&M in center of each one. Delicious.


These are awesome! I make these every year at the holidays. They are quick and easy and they taste just like Turtles. Yummmm!


I have been trying to think of a simple treat to bring to my family's Christmas party and I think I have found it. Thanks so much!!!!!!


Oh YUM!!! Thanks for sharing your granny's recipe.
