Rolo Pretzel Turtles-the name says it all and so easy to make!

It’s something we make every year. Usually several times a year. They take less than 10 minutes to make and in my house, they can disappear just as fast.

But I realized, maybe, one day. My kids will be grown, and they’ll have to look up the temperature for the oven. Or how long to bake them. Just because we make these every year. And have for as long as I can remember. It doesn’t mean they paid attention.

After all, we’re talking, eating a few Rolos along the way (come on, you can’t unwrap 24 Rolos and not eat a few.)  Creating memories. Who really thinks about the details? So for all those who just want to enjoy some time with the kids, here are the directions.
