Rolo Pecan Caramel Candies
(Mary Ann Ross, 2004)
Extremely easy to make and good to eat!
I make these when there is a funeral at our
church with a meal to follow the service.
They are always a big hit and different from
what the other volunteers donate. These can be
made several days to a week ahead.
1 package Mini Pretzels
(you'll need 63 and there will be plenty left in the bag)
1 13-oz. package Rolo Candies
(there are exactly 63 pieces in the bag)
1 package Pecan Halves
(you'll need 63 halves and there will be about 25 to 30 left)
That is ALL of the ingredients needed!
Preheat oven to 250 Degrees
Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and place
pretzels individually to form one layer only.
Place one Rolo Candy on top of each pretzel.
Bake at 250 degrees for 4 minutes or until the candies are soften.
Immediately remove from the oven and quickly place a
pecan half on top of a candy and push down to squish the chocolate
into the pretzel and flatten out.
Refer to top half of the above photo.
Cool for 15 to 20 minutes, then place in refrigerator
(uncovered) until the chocolate candy is firm, usually
10 to 20 minutes. No harm is done if these are left
in the refrigerator longer.
Transfer to plate or container.
Makes 63 candies
