Another "ready in seconds" recipe for a quick snack or food gift. Honestly, unwrapping the Rolos takes longer than any other part, except cooling!

My favorite cooking blogger, Christy Jordan, puts the pretzels & Rolos in an oven for a few minutes, but 20-30 seconds in a microwave works just as well. (My microwave takes 24 seconds, so try a few at first to figure out yours.)

One more thing... a 12 oz. bag of Rolos has ~56 candies in it, so you could just scoop out ~56 pecans halves, if you want & your market has bulk shelled pecans. You'll just use a fraction of a bag of pretzels. =^..^=
