Rolo Turtles + Bonus idea Cheesecake stuffed choc. dipped strawberries

This recipe is for the pecan topped candies on the right.

1 bag Rolos
1 bag butter flavor pretzels (Snyders Butter Snaps)
1 bag whole pecans
(you won't used all the pretzels or pecans)

Toast your whole pecans at 350 for a few minutes..they will start to brown, so just watch them. Spread the pretzels on a cookie sheet and top each with a Rolo. Put in oven at 350 for about 3 minutes, no longer or you'll have a chocolate mess. Remove from oven and press a pecan half onto each.

These are so hard to stop eating once you start. The perfect combination..sweet, salty, buttery..mmm.
Bonus recipe:
Cheesecake stuffed chocolate covered strawberries
Top and hollow out larger strawberries with a melon baller. Stuff with no bake cheesecake. I combined 1 blk cream cheese, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/2 cup whipping cream(whipped), and 1/3 cup sour cream, and 1 tsp vanilla. Pipe the filling into the strawberries and then dip them into 16 oz melted chocolate combined with 1 to 2 tbs shortening.
