Sweets for your Sweetheart

We're beginning to think Valentine's Day around here, and this plate full of tempting desserts was the top tier of the three tiered tray for SereniTEA Wednesday last week. It included miniature carrot cake muffins with cream cheese frosting and tiny red candy hearts. There was also a petite cheesecake topped with fresh raspberries and berry glaze. In the center were Easy Caramel Turtles. The recipe for these quick little morsels was shared by Suzanne at Pink Roses last week.

Easy Caramel Turtles

Mini Pretzel Twists
Rolo Candies
Pecan Halves
Place pretzels on a cookie sheet. Top with unwrapped Rolo candy. Heat about 2 to 3 minutes in a 250 degree oven, until chocolate softens. Remove from oven, press pecan half on top of chocolate. Allow to cook before removing from tray. Store in tightly covered tin. Share with family and friends if you must.
