Holiday favorite at my house, pretzels with Rolos (chocolate covered caramel) and pecans make a sort of up-side-down turtle candy. Or use colored candies for a themed goody, these were for tailgating!

Supplies. For this batch I was doing snacks for a tailgate party so I used appropriately colored candies on top. Normally for the holidays I do "turtles" with pecans on top instead.

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. While that is warming up, start arranging your pretzels on a cookie sheet.

Place a Rolo on each pretzel, this sheet took 9 rolls of Rolos. You could buy them in a bag but I'm not patient enough to unwrap every candy for a batch this size.

Place in oven for 7 minutes or so. Know your oven, if it tends to over-cook stuff pull them sooner. Immediately start placing your toppings & squishing them into the Rolos before they cool too much.

Ta da... I usually toss them in the fridge for a bit to set but you may not need to do this if you have time & your house is cool enough. They keep very well in ziplock bags in or out of the fridge.
