That's one salty turtle!

My kids have the best teachers, they really do. Our kids go to a daycare where the teachers really care about our kids. They teach them with patience which I don’t know if I could ever muster up. They grow excited as our kids learn and grow to reach new milestones. These ladies amaze me, on a daily basis. We wanted to do something special for them for Christmas. Usually, I make fudge for the teachers, but this year we did something a little different – Pretzel Rolo Turtles. While easy – these treats are awesome, just like our teachers. Having help in the kitchen is always a balance, but with this recipe – having help unwrapping all the Rolos – is great. Bronwyn is a pro at unwrapping. Andy thought it was awesome we had a bowl full of unwrapped Rolos at the ready for his eating pleasure. Um… not so much. Bronwyn is not a fan of chocolate so her unwrapping means she won’t sneak any.

The salty sweet combo – perfect. To add extra salt – toast the pecans with some salt and butter… oh that sounds delicious… perhaps next time.
