Homemade Gluten-Free Turtles (Rolo Turtles)

You are sure to be the most popular person at the party when you show up with these Homemade Gluten-Free Turtles or as we like to call them Rolo Turtles! Bonus: You can make them in 5 minutes!



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Grease lightly or spray the foil with non-stick spray.
  2. Place pretzels on the cookie sheet about an inch or more apart.
  3. Top each pretzel with an unwrapped Rolo.
  4. Place in oven for no longer than 2 minutes.
  5. Remove and immediately press a pecan half down firmly in the center of the Rolo.
  6. Set cookie sheet aside for turtle treats to cool (about 30 minutes). Then serve to anyone you love!


Again, do not use Mini Rolos for these treats. They are not listed as gluten free on Hershey's website. Regular-sized Rolos are. Hershey lists the following under "U.S. Gluten-Free Products":  "Rolo® Caramels in Milk Chocolate Candies – All Except Rolo® Minis.
