Turtle Doves

Pin It!

Has anyone else been watching The Bachelor? Is anyone else as irritated as I am by Courtney? It's been frustrating watching Ben completely fall for every one of her calculated, seductive moves. I want to yell "think with your big head Benny!" Brandon refuses to watch this show with me, which I think is highly unfair since I'll watch almost anything he wants to. In fact, mid-show, he peeked out of our bedroom to ask me to turn the volume down tell me he loved me, and I begged him to come sit with me on the couch {I might have even tried some of Courtney's seductive moves} His reponse? He turned around, pulled his pants down and mooned me. Rude.

Anyway, the whole reason for this post was to share this scrumptious dessert that one of my co-workers shared a few weeks ago. I've seen something similar on pinterest so I couldn't wait to try them.
I went to the store directly after work so that I could make them. Brandon fell in love and now we'll be eating them anytime we have a sweet tooth.  One of the best parts is that they take about 5 minutes to make. 

Turtle Doves
You'll need:
Walnuts (or pecans)

1. Place a bunch of pretzels on parchment paper on a cookie tray.
2. Place one rolo on each.
3. Put the tray in the oven at 250 degrees for about 4 minutes.
4. Take it out of the oven and press one of the walnuts into the top.
{the rolos keep their shape, but will easily melt when you press into them}
5. I put mine in the fridge to cool for about 20 minutes.
6. Devour.
The caramel from the rolos, plus the crunch from the pretzels and the salt from the nuts makes this the most delicious combination.

HAHAHA I love Brandon's response to your request to watch the show with you! Too funny!


Erin said...

Yum! Love the combo of sweet and salty. Despite how silly it is, I love watching the Bachelor, and he won't admit it, but my husband watches with me!

Jane {In the Pink and Green} said...

Ooh these look great! I love anything salty and sweet. And I agree, Courtney is the husband usually refuses to watch the Bachelor with me, but somehow I convinced him last week! :)

Jane said...

Courtney is driving me up a wall! I really think she is going to be the one at the end he proposes to but she is so calculating and manipulative.

Those look super amazing!! I hate that I really need to wait until Daniel gets home to make things like that or I will sit down and eat them ALL... in one sitting. haha But, that is going on my list of things to make as soon as he gets home!

Makaila said...

These look AMAZING! And easy! Double score. And as for the Bachelor, mygawd, how much more predictable can a man be!? It's ridunkulous.

Basil. said...

Courtney drives me nuts!!!
Next week the confrontation happens, though!

So exciting!

And thankfully my
Husband likes it too, but he just cares about the last ten minutes :(

Those look so simple even IIIII could do it! ;-) Scrumptious! Thanks for sharing this, Amira! I'm a total novice in the kitchen and could totally use the help. Seriously!

Samantha said...

I can not staaand Courtney from the Bachelor! She is so manipulative and uses her "sex appeal" (I don't think she's THAT cute) to reel Ben in! Oh boys... I am praying he doesn't pick her. My vote goes to Kacie B!

V.V. Gonz said...

Yumm Im going to have to try!

Kristen said...

Haha that is hilarious that he mooned you! I absolutely agree with you about Courtney, what is Ben thinking?? My husband refuses to watch it with me also :(

Natalie said...

Those look so yummy!
And courtney needs to go home. She is awful. I get so frustrated watching it whenever she talks

Ruthie Hart said...

I am proud to say I am not watching the bachelor!! I have given up on that show haha. I am laughing thinking about your hubby mooning you!!!!! those turtle doves look AMAZING. pinning them now :-)

{[Jessica.]} said...

haha that is too funny about your hubby & the bachelor.. mine is the opposite. He thinks it is so funny to watch all the girls react the way they do & Ben being so stupid. We did some investigation on the internet of the show.. lemme say NO GOOD NEWS CAME FROM IT... i have a spoiler alter tomorrow on it!!!

your turtle doves look amazing yummy!!! I shall have to give it a try

Now here is a recipe your non-cooking best friend can try! Cannot wait. I was going to text you and ask if you watched The River last night? Holy scaredy cat it was good and suspenseful. Thinking it might be the new Lost. Anyway hop on the bandwagon it is from the people who made Paranormal Activity! I was home alone and called Dan twice bc I was freaked out. Love you!

Recently Roached said...

I know!! Oh my word. She drives me nuts. Hello, lady! There are children around... put your bikini top on! :)

She makes the show interesting at least ;)

Ugh! I got SO mad after last week's episode that I went to Reality Steve's website and read all the spoilers.

Now, I watch The Voice instead of that stupid show. Ben is an idiot.

Melissa Gritter said...

Those look sooo good!

Danielle said...

If Courtney wins I will have lost all hope in male brains!!! Hahaha!! Also, I think you should make these Turtle Doves (which look AMAZING, btw) and only allow your husband to snack on them while sitting beside you when the Bachelor is on hahahah! A little bribery never hurt anyone! ;)

Jenn said...

Oh my goodness, why is that the most amazing-looking dessert? And so simple! Get it : )


Elle said...

I have been mooned many a time by the hubsters. They just never grow up huh?
I usually LOVE the bachelor but had to quit watching it this season because I was getting so worked up and irritated about Courtney. Guys can be so dumb sometimes...

p.s loving the turtle doves recipe

These are so good!!! I make them at Christmas with little red and green M-n-M's on top instead of the nuts. They are delicious!!!
