Chocolate Caramel Pretzels with Pecans: “Snapping Turtles”

You can make a fabulous candy treat I call “Snapping Turtles” in jig time.

"Snapping Turtles"
Snyder's brand Butter Snap pretzels
Rollo chocolate caramel candies
Pecan halves

Top a Snyder’s brand Butter Snap (a square pretzel that resembles a small grid) with an unwrapped Rollo chocolate caramel candy. Top the Rollo with a pecan half. Place on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet and cook in a 300° oven for 3 minutes or just until chocolate begins to look shiny. Immediately remove pan from oven and gently press pecan down to squish the Rollo. Chill in freezer until firm. Sweet, salty, and caramel-y. Nothing better.
