Poorman's Turtles- Not for Cibele or Sarah
Oh my goodness, these are almost as good as the real thing. These are called Poor man's Turtles.
I found the recipe on some one's blog a few weeks ago and HAD, just HAD to try them. Really wish I had included the name on the recipe that I copied, but I didn't, so I can't give credit.
The base is one of those little square pretzels. You lay them on the cookie sheet, hire a kid to unwrap all the Rollo's (Find one that doesn't like chocolate). bake on the cookie sheet in a 325 degree oven for 5 minutes, as soon as they come out of the oven place a pecan on top and smoosh (not too hard just very lightly). If you hold the pecan at the two ends rather than in the middle you get less chocolate under your fingernails.
Try not to eat them all in one sitting.
Oh yeah, in case you are wondering about the Cibele and Sarah reference - they are always getting on me about showing food shots as they are on perpetual diets. I could take a page from their books, but what fun is that?
Thanks for tuning in.
