Sara’s 3×3’s (Pretzel Turtle Recipe)

Hi, friends!

I picked up an old recipe book and sat down determined to share something with all of you today.  As I was flipping through the book, I discovered an old recipe (from Jr. High Home Economics Class in ’80!  EKK! )since I haven’t made it in a while, (probably since ’81. HA!)  I wouldn’t feel comfortable sharing it with you.  It’s a biscuit recipe that starts like this:  “Mix together in a blender…”  Yeah.  I’m a little afraid too.

However, the foodies fairies were lookin’ out for all of you and I ran across a recipe I modified from  I’ve used this pretzel turtle recipe as sweet treat to share at business meetings. They were such a hit, I had to Email the recipe to the meeting participants the very next day. They would be just as good for girl scouts, school birthday parties and to give away as gifts.  I call them 3 x 3’s because there are only three ingredients, you bake them at 300 degrees for three minutes.  I know.  This one is rough. I think you can handle it though. 🙂   So here you go… your sweet treat for Sunday!

Sara’s 3 by 3’s (Pretzel Turtles)  


30 butter snap pretzels

30 chocolate covered caramel candies (I used Rolo candy)

30 pecan halves


Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Place pretzel snaps on a parchment covered cookie sheet.  Place one caramel candy piece on top of each pretzel.

Bake for three minutes!  Take them out of the oven.  While they are still warm, press a pecan half on top of each candy piece.  It should smoosh nicely. (Do you like my complex and technical terms? ) Cool completely and store in an airtight container.  That is, if they last long enough for you to store them.  They are addictive!  Enjoy!
