I love the holiday season if for nothing more than the limited appearance of culinary staples in festive form. Take the humble pretzel. For the last few Christmases, it has appeared in a stellar new guise… the star. Having popped up in two of the biggest UK supermarkets, I snatched up as many bags as I could carry and jumped on the salty-sweet bandwagon to present a new take on a Martha classic; Pretzel Turtles.
Hark back to Christmas 2010 and the first time I tried the Martha Stewart take on Turtles – my childhood favourite chocolate-covered caramel-pecan orgy. Well every year I crank these out to ooohs and aaahs and they never fail to satisfy the sweet tooth. But what about the salt tooth?
Well just sub the pecans with pretzel stars and Christmas just got salty in three easy ingredients…
So this recipe just got easier, cheaper, tastier and trendier. You’re welcome.
Follow the directions from the original Turtles from 2010 and watch them go faster than a shooting star!
