Rolo Turtles & Princess Cookies

Today I'm sharing two great recipes with only a few ingredients each! So simple to make, so good. These are favorites in our home for the holidays.

Big shout-outs to my two good friends for sharing the recipes at a holiday cookie swap. These flew off the plates! 

First Recipe, Rolo Turtles..

I mentioned before, our youngest has an egg allergy, it can be difficult finding easy treats that don't contain egg. A lot of the egg-free recipes out there are time consuming with a lot of ingredients. It's nice to have easy, go-to recipes that don't compromise on taste. These are addictive. 

Rolo Turtle Recipe

  • Bag of Pretzels Squares or Rounds (You can use reg snaps, round or square pretzels. Butter and round were all I could find at our store that day, they were great)
  • Bag of Rolos- approx 56 rolos  in  12 oz. bag
  • Bag of Pecan Halves
Preheat oven to 250*F
Line the pretzels on cookie sheet, place a Rolo on top of each pretzel. Bake 4-5 mins, just long enough for the Rolo to get soft, DO NOT OVER BAKE.  Pull from oven, take a pecan half and lightly press down on top of rolo. Cool. Eat. Yum.

If you have a nut allergy in the house, instead of using a pecan, just place another pretzel on top. They also can be made in the microwave.


Next Recipe, Princess Cookies - This recipe was shared by another good friend, Stacey. These Princess Cookies are my little one's favorite, all my friends' and family favorite too. Sweet and salty perfection!


Princess Cookies Recipe 

Print Recipe 
  • 1 box of Wheat Thins
  • Creamy peanut butter
  • White or milk chocolate
  • Sprinkles
Make peanut butter sandwiches with the Wheat Thins. Next dip them in white or milk chocolate, place on wax paper, add some sprinkles, allow chocolate to're done. Enjoy!

Both recipes will go fast, you might want to make extra to stash away for yourself!  They truly are that good.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Those sound fun! On the Princess Cookies, it would be interesting to try other nut butters including some chocolate ones. You could also sub an M&M or 1/2 a candied cherry for those with nut allergies.
