A Super Simple Treat

Hey guys! I'm probably a little more excited than I should be that I get to share this with you but I link up to other people's recipes so often and I very rarely post any originals. This one is from my friend Kim. She just told me about it less than a week ago but I knew I wanted to try it right away so I made them yesterday. It's the easiest thing ever, and even though you probably don't need it, I'm going to post my very first tutorial on how to make these little treats. I don't know a name for them, maybe you can think of one?

First, get your oven going. It doesn't really matter what temp. I put it at 350 but if you have something else cooking in there anyway that temp will be fine too.
Ok, here's what you'll need
You're only limited in how many of these you can make by the smallest bag of something you have. I don't know why I bought such a chintzy bag of pecans, that's what I ran out of first.

Lay out your pretzels on a baking sheet. Unwrap the Rolos and set one up on top of each pretzel. Keep in mind that if you enlist the help of your husband in unwrapping the Rolos, about half of them are going to go missing before they make it on their pretzel. Pop those in the oven for just about 5 minutes. You'll be able to see the chocolate getting soft but you don't want to let them get fully melty.
While they're still hot press a pecan half into the Rolo like a thumbprint and it'll squish out a little over the pretzel. This picture is really just so you can see my pretty diamond.

Then all you have to do is let them cool on your counter for an hour or two or faster in the fridge. Wait till the chocolate hardens up again before you take them off the baking sheet. It's less messy that way. We've been just snacking on them but I think they would go really well in a cookie sampler tin come Christmas. Salty, sweet, nutty, chewy, crispy, you're going to love them!!
