Rolo Pretzel Recipe - Turtle Candy Recipe

I shared this recipe with a friend years ago when she told me that she couldn't come to my annual cookie exchange because she didn't have time to bake. This Rolo Pretzel Recipe for Turtle Candy can be made in less than 10 minutes, and it's easy enough for a child to make if you help them with the oven. Her 9 year old daughter proudly made this Rolo Pretzel Recipe and the turtle candy was a hit!
