Look at these Rolo Pretzels…I mean just look at these!
Yes, I know! They are perfection.
This past week, 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.
Rolo Pretzels: How we made them!
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 – and then popped our baking sheets in a 250°F oven for five minutes.
After they came out of the oven, we topped each partially melted Rolo with another pretzel, let them cool for just a minute or two, and then started popping them in our mouths like candy.
Well, I guess they kind of ARE candy.
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. 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. I’m in! 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.
If you liked this idea, you might just want to try dipping your potato chips in chocolate.
