Day 5: Pretzel Turtles

Day 5: Pretzel Turtles

Welcome to Day 5 of 12 days of Christmas!

First of all I don’t usually make pretzel treats, but when I saw these I knew these were for my husband as his favorite chocolate are turtles. I knew this was meant to be. I know it’s not really a cookie for my 12 days of cookies but it’s close enough, it’s a sweet treat, therefore it qualifies.

Recently I’ve come to a conclusion. I love dark chocolate more than milk chocolate which is not a bad thing because dark chocolate is healthier for you, so for these pretzel turtles I used dark chocolate only but if you like milk chocolate feel free to use that, or a mix of the two. Anyway let me tell you about these turtles. This is such a simple treat to make and they are so good. They will be popular with everyone, from kid to adult, everyone will love you and look at you like a God…uh Goddess, pardon me.
