Rolo Pretzel Bites {Easy and Delicious!}

Rolo Pretzel Bites - Incredibly easy and delicious!

I’m a big fan of fancy desserts.

BUT… there are times when you just need something quick, easy and still delicious!

That’s the kind of recipe I have for you today.

In fact, I have a hard time even calling it a “recipe”, when it only has three ingredients…

Rolo (store bought chocolate/caramel candies), pretzels and pecan halves.

Bottom line, if you just threw those three things in a bowl it would be pretty yummy!

Rolo Pretzel Bites - Incredibly easy and delicious!

For these tasty treats, all you have to do is lay the pretzels on a baking sheet (I used these cute square ones, but the mini twists would work too).  Top each pretzel with an unwrapped Rolo candy.

Rolo Pretzel Bites - Incredibly easy and delicious!

Bake in the oven at 250*F for 4-5 minutes (no longer).

When you remove them from the oven, the Rolo will still be in the same shape as when it went in the oven. Place a pecan half on top of the Rolo and press down a bit.

Top each of the Rolo with one pecan half.

Place the entire baking sheet in the freezer for about 5-7 minutes to allow the Rolo to cool.

Remove from freezer and enjoy! Or place in a container to enjoy later.  These will last several days- probably more, but they’ve never lasted that long in our house!

These are so delicious!  A great sweet-salty combo.

Enjoy!

Recipe source-  I recently discovered these when a friend made some for Scrapbooking night, but I think it’s an old recipe.  I imagine it’s from Rolo  =)

    I've been making these turtles for years. A helpful hint is to buy the Rolos at the checkout rather than the bag… then you don't have to spend half an hour unwrapping!

    This is a fun recipe. Rolos arent sold in Finland, but I think I can find something similar.

    These look yummy! I think too many rolos would make it to my mouth before making it onto the pretzels!

    Great idea! I love it. My daughter has a severe nut allergy so I don't even keep them in the house much. Do you think another preztel on top would work?

    Plan B

    LOVE THESE! I have seen ones before with M&Ms; squished on top instead of pecans. My son is also allergic to nuts, so I use sixlets candy :)

    Can also use a hershey's Kiss (in place of a Rolo) and an m&m; in place of the pecan…these look fabulous.

    Making them right now (they are cooling) as the rain pours down and my 3 year old son who has been up since 5am (could not convince him that day light savings ment he needed to go back to bed) is running races in our small hallway :)

    Anonymous- I do like to give credit where it is due for recipes, but this recipe is much older than the Best Bites version. I got the reicpe from a friend, who found it in a family cookbook that is several years old.

    My daughter and her friends don't care for pecans so I use peanut M&Ms; for the tops.

    I make sort of the same thing with a Hershey kiss and holiday colored M&Ms.; My preschool class loves them! This seems like a more grown up version!

    I found this idea originally on PInterest, then made them up with great results. I looked up a blog on google to link back to in my own blog. Your blog and recipe were the best choice. Good Job! Thanks, Kathy

    BUT… can you freeze them for a later date? Need to know asap! Thanks.
    OH! The directions on the pkg of Rolos says to ‘cook’ pretzel/rolos in oven at 350, not 250. Doubt it makes any difference, just so they don’ t melt tooooo much!

    Jenny — October 12, 2012 at 12:21 am

    These sound delicious! My family are allergic to nuts so we put another pretzel on top of the chocolate and made it a sandwich! Feel free to take my daughters’ idea and use it for yourself or your families!

    Do you know if these can be frozen.

    • Glory replied: — November 20th, 2012 @ 7:19 am

      I’m not sure about freezing them, I’ve never tried it. They only take 10 minutes or so to make from start to finish, and will last several days (in a sealed container), so I’m not sure if there is any great need to stock up on them ahead of time.

    This time of year you can find round pretzels, which are perfect for this. :)
    Also try Hershey hugs for this with an m&m!!

    Has anyone tried these with toasted pecans? Not sure whether to use salted ones either .

    Did I miss whether or not these are salted pecans or raw? They do not look roasted and salted in the picture.

    We made these in the fall with football pretzels…we sandwiched the candy between the pretzels then dipped them in team colored sugars…biggest hit at the bake sale =)

    Try placing the pecans on the same cookie sheet with the pretzel/rolos. The pecans are even better toasted.
