Rolo Pretzel Turkeys

Not only do kids love to eat these tasty Rolo Pretzel Turkeys, they love to help make them too! These are so easy to put together, especially when you have an extra set of hands to help with assembly.

What You’ll Need

  • Mini pretzel twists (1 for each treat)
  • Candy corn (3 for each treat)
  • Rolo caramel candies, unwrapped (1 for each treat)
  • Small candy eyeballs (2 for each treat)
  • Red or orange M&M’s (1 for each treat)
  • Parchment paper

How to Make Rolo Pretzel Turkeys

Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Lay the pretzels on the baking sheet. Balance 3 candy corn candies on each pretzel.

Next, lay a Rolo candy on top of the candy corn on each pretzel.

Carefully place the baking sheet in the oven so that the candies stay in place. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes but keep a close eye on them.

You want to warm them just long enough to soften the Rolos but not melt them completely.

Remove the baking sheet from the oven and while the candies are still soft, press one candy-coated chocolate candy into each Rolo. As you press the candy into the Rolo, the chocolate and caramel will push through the pretzel to attach everything together.

Use orange to resemble the turkey’s beak or red to serve as the turkey’s wattle. Immediately press the candy eyeballs into place. A toothpick is the perfect tool for arranging and pressing the eyeballs without making a mess of the soft Rolo candy.

Allow candies to harden to their unmelted state before serving. To speed the process, you can place the baking sheet in the refrigerator or freezer.
