Favorite Christmas Treat

My favorite Christmas treat is turtles and pecan rolls. My husbands sister sends us the turtles and his mother sends us 2 pecan rolls and I usually eat one of them by myself. Well I am lazy and so I don't make candy except fudge, I have a recipe that is so good, another one of my favorite treats. When I was a stay at home Mom occasionally I would make a small batch of fudge and eat the whole pan by myself before the school bus came.Just needed a chocolate fix but oh, not something that I can do now but it was good. Well I tasted these pretzel turtles and love them so I searched the web and found a recipe that I am going to share. Enjoy, eat all of them if you want but sharing is more fun.
