tortoise and the hare


Ok, so I’m technically sharing with you how to make chocolate turtles, but I figured the title was fitting seeing as how fast and easy it is to make these scrumptious treats!

I learned the basic recipe from one of my girlfriends during our weekend away (see here) and then made a batch for the birthday of my dear friend Emanuel of the amzingamazingamazing blog Scratch (see here and here). The recipe is super easy and even more delicious. Go ahead, try your hand at these delicious chocolate turtles:

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 5 minutes



– 1 large bag of Rolos candies

– Pretzel snaps

– Almonds



Preheat oven to 100 degrees Fahrenheit. On a large cookie pan, lay flat a bed of pretzel snaps. Place one Rolo candy on top of each pretzel snap. Put the tray in the oven and remove once the candies are soft. Gently push an almond into each Rolo. Let cool and enjoy!
