These candies are fast and easy, but they look and taste like you did a lot of work. Make as many-or as few -as you want. They're great alongside other desserts for guests who want only a bite of something sweet. -Julie Wemhoff Angola, Indiana

  1. Line baking sheets with foil. Place pretzels on foil; top each pretzel with a candy.
  2. Bake at 250° for 4 minutes or until candies are softened (candies will retain their shape). Immediately place a pecan half on each candy and press down so candy fills pretzel. Cool slightly. Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until set. Yield: 63 candies (about 1-1/4 pounds).

"These are very you can't eat just one! Made them at Christmas and 5 year old nephew cried when I was taking them home. Needless to say they stayed with him to his mothers dismay! He got them again as a surprise on his birthday in March! Looks like this will be his gift every year! EVERYONE loves the combination of chocolate, salty, nutty and pretzel. Great recipe"

"These have all the elements needed for a go-to recipe--they're quick, easy, and delicious! These get raves whenever I take them to gatherings, and it's fun listening to others trying to decide what all the ingredients are! Either mini pretzel twists or the little square grids work equally well."

"They are so easy to make. I used Christmas (red & green) peanut M&Ms and they were a big hit."
