Can’t afford designer chocolates? (And who can at this time of year?) No time for time-consuming candy-making extravaganzas? Then, here’s a deal for you. THREE ingredients. Less than 30 minutes. No mixing. And everyone loves these bite-sized gooey chocolate treats with just the right crunch.
Poor Man’s Millionaires
Bag of mini-pretzels (knots)
Bag of Rolo candies
Pecan halves (one per treat)
Line cookie sheet w/ waxed paper. Spread pretzels on cookie sheet (not touching). Unwrap Rolo candies. Place one atop each pretzel. Bake at 250 degrees for 4 minutes (only until candy is slightly soft). Removed and press pecan half into top of each candy smooshing it down a bit. Let cool completely before removing from waxed paper. I sometimes put them in the freezer for a few minutes to speed the cooling.
Store in airtight container. That's it! Hint: Plan ahead and get enough stuff for two batches because these disappear fast.
You might want to leave a plate for poor Santa. He'll be grateful, I'm sure.
Peace and Joy to all . . .
