Look at these Rolo Pretzels…I mean just look at these!
Yes, I know! They are perfection.
Recently, the kids and I made a couple batches of these cuties, and I just had to share them with you.
They made for such a fun little treat, and I’m thinking about adding them to the holiday treat boxes we put together for our neighbors this season.
If you haven’t made them before, Rolo pretzels are essentially just a Rolo candy (chocolate + caramel) sandwiched between two pretzel halves.
The whole thing then gets baked until the chocolate is melted and bubbly.
Rolo Pretzels Recipe
This simple recipe is quick and easy to make and was fun to do as a family activity. Everyone had a job and we became a Rolo pretzel-making assembly line.
One kiddo was in charge of unwrapping the Rolos® (Yes, we used an entire bag full. ha!) – while another kid laid pretzels out on a foil-covered baking sheet.
We topped each pretzel with an unwrapped Rolo. Then we popped our baking sheets in a 250°F oven for five minutes.
After just those few minutes, the melty goodness was ready to come out of the oven.
Next, we topped each partially melted Rolo with another pretzel and then let these little treats cool for just a minute or two.
After a bit of cooling time, they were ready to devour. They were SO GOOD. These little cuties are just the perfect combo of sweet and salty.
Rolo Treat Variations
The recipe on the back of the bag (You didn’t think this was original with me, did you?) says to top each Rolo with a pecan to make a Rolo Turtle Pretzel.
I didn’t have any pecans on hand, but I did try a few with cashews. The other flavors seemed to overpower the taste of the cashew, but maybe it’s different with pecans?
Have you tried either one of these ideas?
Several of my Instagram friends mentioned making these at Christmas time and topping them with red and green M&M’s.
So since trying this recipe the first time, we gave the M & M’s a try!
You might just see me talking about these again soon!
I think I might have stumbled on to the perfect party food for the holidays – If sweet and salty together is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.
Here are a few more Rolo treat ideas you might want to try:
- Add a mini marshmallow to the top of the melted Rolo for a twist on smores.
- Top a Rice Krispy Treat with a melted Rolo for a chocolate caramel kick that’s hard to rests.
- Top the melted Rolo with a piped holly leaf and berries for a holiday twist.
There you have it – a few fun, quick and easy recipe Rolo pretzel ideas. I hope you’ll give them a try!
If you liked this idea, you might just want to try dipping your potato chips in chocolate. This has become another sweet and salty favorite in our house.
