Pretzel Turtles

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • Two 4.5-ounce bags about 40 soft caramels (I used Werther's Originals)
  • One 10-ounce bag pretzel nuggets
  • 12 ounces chocolate such as three 3.5 ounce Lindt Excellence chocolate bars I used the Intense Orange flavor
  • 2 cups finely chopped nuts I used Honey Bourbon Sweetened Pecans but plain works too


Unwrap the caramels and use a rolling pin to roll out each one into a 1/8-inch thick oval. Wrap the caramel around each pretzel nugget, sealing the ends.

Roughly chop the chocolate bars and place in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds then stir. Microwave for another 30 seconds and stir. The chocolate should be melted but if needed, microwave in 15 second bursts until melted. If using flavored chocolate bars the chocolate may have chunks in it.

Place the chopped nuts in a shallow bowl. Line a baking sheet, cooling rack or cutting board with parchment paper. Dip a caramel-covered pretzel nugget in the chocolate and toss to coat. Transfer to the chopped nuts and use a small fork or spoon to cover with the nuts. Place the coated pretzels on the parchment paper. Repeat with the remaining pretzels. Allow to set and chocolate to harden, about 3 hours.
