Make EASY Rolo Pretzels (Rolo Turtles) with a Twist

The last couple of days my toddlers have been sick and keeping locked up at home while I tend to the ill. As a result, this morning I work up with a major bout of cabin fever which caused me to head straight to the kitchen and get out the sprinkles.

Sprinkles are a sure-fire mood booster. Trust me. I pretty much have a PhD in colorful sugary things.
