Here's a variation on yesterday's Minty Candies (still waiting for someone to come up with a name for those!).
This one is my all-time favorite! I don't know why I only make these around Christmas time ... nothing about them particularly screams "Holidays!". I'll make it a point to make some in February. And March.
You'll pretty much follow the same protocol as yesterday's project - heat the oven to 250°, line a baking sheet with foil or parchment, blah, blah, blah.
This time, however, instead of Kisses and M&Ms, you'll need Rolos and Pecan halves.
You *can* used Hershey's Caramel Kisses, but they don't melt nearly as nicely as the Rolos do.
Line 'em up on their pretzel like good little toy soldiers
... and put 'em in the oven. Set your timer for 3 minutes, and bring 'em out when they're just getting melty and shiny.
Now place a lovely Pecan half right on top of each Rolo. Squish it down pretty good - you want a little caramel oozing out through the chocolate.
DANG, they're soooo good!
