Super Simple 2-Ingredient Turtles

2 Ingredient TurtlesYou guuuuyyyyyysssss. These turtles. I can’t even.

Most recipes on the interwebs feature three or four-ingredient turtles, and that’s totally cool. But if you’re like me, you kinda sorta get a little pissy whenever you have to rinse out a sticky caramel pot or when you have to pry hardened chocolate off of a spoon. Like seriously, I would love to have a live-in permanent dishwasher. It would be AWESOME, and I would pay them entirely in treats.

But since I haven’t made it yet (at least to the caliber of hiring staff), I’ll have to settle with cutting out the middle man by using Rolo candies instead of your traditional caramel squares and melting chocolate. Rolos take the guess-work and fuss out of making homemade candy since you simply upwrap them and melt them for a delightful treat! No sticky bowls, no frustrated dishwashers. Easy-peasy, yo.

(Oh, and if you’re lookin’ for work, I *do* have a sink full of dishes at the moment soo… inquire within) 🙂

Super Simple 2-Ingredient Turtles
Recipe type: Candy
Prep time: 
Total time: 
These two-ingredient turtles are the EASIEST candies you'll ever make! Roll the melted chocolate edges in sprinkles for a festive touch that looks great any time of year.
  • Rolos, unwrapped
  • Pecan Halves (I like using Diamond of California Shelled Pecans)
  • Sprinkles, if desired
  1. Line a baking sheet with foil and preheat your oven to 300 degrees F. Place a pecan half down on the prepared baking sheet and very gently top it with an unwrapped Rolo candy. The pecan halves can be a little teeter-tottery, but try to balance them or choose flatter pecans as best as you can. There's no right or wrong way!
  2. Once the pecans have been topped with the Rolos, very carefully place the pan in the oven for about 2-3 minutes or until the Rolo candies are shiny but not melted. Remove from the oven and gently press another pecan half on top of each Rolo, sandwiching them slightly. Allow the turtles to cool for about 10 minutes before rolling the sides in sprinkles if you'd like. Otherwise, allow the turtles to set completely before serving or packaging. This recipe can make as many or as few turtles as you'd like.

DSC_0139AI love the spirited touch of the Christmas-colored sprinkles rolled around each candy; it makes them look more special and like you spent all day making these fabulous turtle candies! No one will guess they are just two simple, everyday ingredients and these make fantastic gifts for friends and family!

Have a delicious day!!

xo, Hayley
