these are called "poor man turtles," and i can't give credit to the creator because i have no idea who that is. there are dozens of variations of these, and dozens of different names for them. these are such a great fqst (was going to type quick instead of fast, but just realized my "Q" also does not work....oh i hope i get the keyboard tomorrow!)
i made a huge batch of these on monday. i took a few to dinner at our friends' house monday night and took the rest to my parent's house for a huge dinner they hosted last night. they are not the cutest dessert ever, but they are super easy and super tasty. they are even possible to make with a baby-toddler having a meltdown, so they may become a 2011 Christmas gift staple at our house.
place pretzels on cookie sheet, each with a rolo placed on top of it. bake at 350 for 3 minutes. remove and promptly put a pecan on each rolo and press down. allow to set until chocolate is cool.
like i said, these are great, but not all that cute. so i will leave you with something undoubtedly extremely cute:
