Chef's Notes

  1. It says "chocolate covered caramel candies" and the only ones I could find were Hershey's with caramel centers. Perhaps that was the problem? After 4 minutes at 300 the chocolate was not soft enough to push a pecan into and have it stay. 2 more minutes then 2 more minutes. I finally tried turning up - Read more ...
  2. These were a bit too rich for me, but judging by how fast they vanished from the party I brought them to, everyone else must have disagreed with me. These got RAVE REVIEWS! I did take the advice of a few others and here's what you need to do to make these perfect... Use the - Read more ...
  3. These truly are delicious. I make mine in the microwave. I arrange a circle of 9 pretzels (topped with the Rolo) on wax paper on top of a small plastic cutting board. Microwave about 30 seconds remove from the microwave and squish a pecan half on top of each one. Then I just slide the - Read more ...
  4. Do yourself a favor and double the recipe. As long as you're going to make them, it doesn't really add much more time and expense, and these were a big hit! I couldn't find Rolos, but I did find Dove Chocolates w/Caramel. They worked perfectly and are very good (smoother/creamier than Rolos). I also used - Read more ...
  5. I can't wait to make these this way here is how I have done it.....use kisses instead of rolos and M&M's instead of pecans.....I bet the almonds will be delicious!
  6. I have been making these for years now and they are always a big hit. I do offer a couple suggestions. I use the round pretzels that are usually available around the holidays. The Rolo fits nicely inside it and makes for the perfect little treat. Also, after these are completely cooled, I melt a - Read more ...
  7. These have got to be the simplest treat ever to make and yet are SO VERY ADDICTIVE! Make sure that you make at least two batches... one to enjoy right away and another so that you'll have more for tomorrow or for that special event that they were originally intended for! I used the square - Read more ...
  8. One of my students brought these to a potluck. They are wonderful! I made them 3 times between Christmas and New Years and everyone loved them. They are very quick to make. Just allow time for them to set up afterward. I also toast the peacans in a pan on the stove before I put - Read more ...
  9. Awesome. I love making these as Christmas gifts. They're a huge hit. Rolos are the best to use as caramel Hershey Kisses get messy when you put the pecan on. Oh and using roasted/salted pecans makes it too salty. Delicious!
  10. I make about 15-20 different Xmas cookies every year. This year these cookies were the hit of them all. I used one bag of rollo candies and could have made another bag's worth easily. Everybody loved these. This will be one of the "regulars" of the cookie season.
