Great Kid Activity Blog: The link for this blog came from my friend Min! Thanks! Check it out!

Kiddley is published almost daily and is brimming with bright ideas, fun projects, links to great web finds and quick tips for parents to take away and enjoy with their kids.

I can't wait to try the Pecan Pretzel Chocolates....very similar to the pretzel treats listed in an entry below, only you use ROLOS and PECANS.......YUM, YUM, YUM!

You will need:
Small square pretzels
Pecan halves
Rolos or a similar chocolate candy (something with caramel is extra good)

Heat your oven to 400°f (200°c) and have the kids stack the pretzels and then Rolos on a cookie sheet. This may take awhile, let them have fun with it. It’s the easy non-hot part.

Pop them in the hot oven for 3 minutes. Different candies take different times, but you want the candy soft enough to be squishy.

Take them out on the oven and transfer to a plate so the kids don’t burn themselves on the tray and have them push the pecan half on top of the chocolate, squishing it down. The chocolate will be hot, so supervise closely. I have never had any burns, but if one goes in the mouth, that would be a big ouch. (OK sounds like too much work to transfer them to a plate...I opt to just let the BIG KIDS do this part!).

Chill the candies in the fridge and when they are firm put into baggies, making decorative labels if you wish. Now give away as gifts (or keep!).
