Low-Point Pecan Turtle Candies

Who doesn't love turtle candies; wonderful milk chocolate and gooey caramel with pecans? But with approximately 2 points for one turtle, it is difficult to enjoy very many of these without feeling a little bit of guilt. Instead, try these easy-to-make turtles that are less than 1 point for each delicious candy!


Low-Point Pecan Turtle Candies
Ingredients:
- Bag of mini pretzels
- Bag of Hershey's Rolo Caramel in Milk Chocolate candy
- Pecan Halves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Arrange mini pretzels on parchment paper and set one Rolo candy on top of each pretzel. Place in oven and bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until Rolo candy begins to soften but not melt. Remove and gently press one pecan half on top of Rolo. Let cool and enjoy! Refrigerate any leftovers (if you have any). If you'd like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here.
