Melting The Chocolate On The Prezals
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Line a baking sheet pan with parchment paper.
Lay all of the pretzels on the baking sheet in a single layer. Place an unwrapped chocolate covered caramel candy on top of each pretzel.
Place the pan in oven for 3-4 minutes. You want the chocolate to just begin to soften and melt. Watch carefully that they aren't in the oven too long, this part goes fast.
Remove pan from the oven. Quickly press a pecan half into each candy. Decoate further or allow the chocolates to compleltly cool before serving.
Microwave white chocolate chips in a microwave safe dish for 1-2 minutes. With a spoon, drizzle the white chocolate over top of each pecan. Quickly add sprinkles to the top of each chocolate before the melted chocolate cools. Allow the candies to completly cool before serving.
Rolo pretzel turtles will stay fresh in a sealed container for up to a week.
