Not sure if these qualify as cookies or candy, but they're super simple.

Poor Man's Turtles

Small bite-sized pretzels w/salt
Chocolate covered caramels (Rolos work fine)
Pecan halfs (or nut of your choice)

Preheat oven to 275

Place pretzels on greased cookie sheet or use parchment paper
Place one candy on each pretzel.
Bake for exactly 3 minutes.
Press one pecan half (or nut of choice) into the softened chocolate and let reharden. (Using the parchment make this so much easier as you can slide it onto a cool cookie sheet and then put them in the fridge for 10 minutes or so to harden up)
