You can roll a Rolo to your pal...

I have been wanting to make these pretzel/Rolo/pecan candies for a while now. Today was the day. I found the recipe on The Country Doctor's Wife's Blog during Christmas break. This afternoon I went to Freddy's to buy the ingredients. Warning: this is not a cheap recipe. For 3 ingredients, my bill was almost $12. Rolos & pecans are pricey! My New Year's resolution was to not 'impulse buy' anymore & to use coupons whenever I can. But - I needed a dessert to take to my inlaws tonight, so I went ahead and justified the purchase.

Notice my well-used cookie sheet. Omid hates this cookie sheet but I love it! I think the darker & dented the cookie sheet, the better the cookie. I have a nice new cookie sheet, but the baked goods just don't seem to bake as well on it. I prefer my old one.

The recipe is so easy. Preheat the oven to 250*, unwrap the Rolos, place pretzels on a cookie sheet with a Rolo on top of each. Place the cookie sheet in the oven for 6 minutes. After the time is up, remove the cookie sheet and place a pecan on each Rolo. Cool and enjoy!
They are a little sweet and a little salty. Just perfect.
