Ridiculously Good Treats

So I have lots of blogs that I read every morning. Some people I know quite well, some that I've met a few times, and some that I've never met, but found here in cyberspace.

The Cruson Crew is a blog by a friend of a friend. We've met several times, she's sweet as the candy I'm about to tell you about. I read her blog because she's really, really funny and most days I need good laugh.

A few days ago, she posted the following recipe. It sounded so good that I had to try it. Before we get started, let me just add that she puts a little pecan on top, but Biggie B is allergic to nuts and Preston would rather go hungry than eat a nut, so we don't put them in anything.

Rolo-Marshmallow-Pretzel Bites (I made up this name...I'm sure it's actually called something much more cleaver)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Gather the following:

Butter Snap Pretzels

Line up the pretzels on a baking sheet.

Put a Rolo on top of each pretzel. Put a marshmallow on top of each Rolo.

Place in the oven for about 3 minutes.

Once you pull them out, you can take a pecan and smush them down, or if you are not using nuts, take a knife lightly sprayed with Pam and smush them down a bit.

If you can wait until they cool down, you are a stronger woman than me. These little jewels are the perfect mix of salty/sweet/chewy.

Try not to eat them all at once. Yeah, good luck.

Happy Thursday!
