A hundred years or so ago, the neighbor boy always wanted to go to the grocery story with the golden child and I. I found out later it was because I always bought them Rolos. So much for thinking it was neighborly love. We’ve always liked Rolos in this family. We love our caramel.
This is a new recipe for me. Could it be any easier? I don’t think so. They end up tasting like a turtle candies. As usual, it takes longer to unwrap the Rolos than it does to put the candy together.
36 Pecan halves
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Unwrap the Rolos.
- Place the pretzels on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and top each one with an unwrapped Rolo candy.
- Bake in oven for 3 minutes, until the chocolate just begins to melt. The Rolo should be soft but not completely melted.
- Remove from oven, place on cooling rack and immediately squish the Rolo with a pecan. Watch the caramel ooze out.
* from the Recipe Box:
The original recipe I saw said to bake the Rolos for 3 to 5 minutes. Don’t do it! I baked mine for 4 minutes and that was too long. You want them soft, not melted, so go with 2 to 3 minutes.
Rold Gold are my favorite pretzels. However, next time I won’t use them. Snyder makes a square pretzel that would support the Rolo better. They look like a grid and the caramel won’t ooze through. I still like Rold Gold best flavor wise.
G also made a good point: a salty pretzel is best. It complements the sweetness of the Rolo better.
I know you’re thinking it’s a stupid candy for god’s sake, but you want everything to be the best it can be. True?
