  • Pretzels – I love the square pretzels, but regular ones will work too
  • Rolos – You can use a Hershey Kiss instead
  • M&Ms – You can try it with pecans, chocolate chips, or dry fruit. Options are endless.

You only need a few simple ingredients to make these amazing treats! Everyone will go crazy over pretzel rolo treats.

How to make Rolo Pretzels:

  • First, lay out the pretzels in a single layer on a baking sheet with parchment paper. The waxed paper will make for easy clean up.
  • Remove all the wrappers from the Rolo candy. Place one unwrapped Rolos on top of each pretzel. Easy!

  • Bake for 3 minutes in a preheat oven of 350 degrees F and then remove them from oven.
  • You want to press an M&M on each Rolo pretzel as soon as it comes out of the oven.

  • Let each rolo pretzel bite harden with the M&M on top. You can put them in the fridge to help speed this along.

How do you melt Rolos?

Once you have placed the rolos on your pretzels, simply just put the cookie sheet in the oven for about 3 minutes and your Rolo’s will melt.

You don’t want to leave them in too long, as you want them to be melted just enough to put your M&M on top.

How to store:

You can store the treats in an air tight container so they stay fresh. Just make sure they have cooled completely before doing so.

Otherwise, they will stick together and make a mess.

Rolo and Pretzels taste amazing!

Rolo pretzels make a quick and easy treat and these pretzel bites are sure to impress.

Each chocolate covered caramel bite only takes a few minutes until rolo is melted and ready to enjoy. The hardest part about this recipe is letting them cool completely once you remove from oven.

Everyone is so eager to enjoy these snacks that it is hard to wait. They don’t last long around here because we all gobble them up quickly.

It is one of our all time favorite recipes and every single person loves them! That is for sure something because we rarely all like the same thing.
