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!

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.

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.

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  =)

  5. i really do love these little treats they`re easy fun and a stress relief.

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

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

  8. 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 =)

  9. I’m going to put these in cute little jars and hand them out to my bar patrons for Holiday gifts!

  11. Made these for my kids, at least that was the intention. They were so good, I ate half of them. Love rolos!

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

  14. Can these be frozen? If so, any guidelines to follow? If not, how long do they last sitting on the counter?

    • 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.

  15. These came out great! Thank you!

  16. I just made this and did a little experimenting. Not much difference in taste between toasting the pecans before putting them on the rolos and not toasting them. BUT, if you roll the pecans in melted butter and then brown sugar, and then toast them before putting them on the rolos, they are so sweet and yummy!!!

  17. I make these with the square pretzels that are butter flavored…YUMMY!!!!!!!

  18. I microwave a plate of these on high for 20 seconds….so much faster and just as good!!

  19. I live in a humid climate–Florida. The treats still were not set after an hour and a half. Right now I have them in tins layered between wax paper circles, sitting in the fridge with the lids ajar. Even though I do live in a humid climate, we have air conditioning, so you wouldn’t think that would matter. I followed the directions to the letter.

  20. I put the pecan on top of the Rolo before I put them in the oven. It gives it a slightly roasted taste that is delicious. These are always a crowd pleaser.

  21. Can they be made ahead and put in the freezer?

  22. Could you use piñon ( pine nuts) instead of pecans? 

  23. Loved these, so easy they are a non-recipe!  Couldn’t find Rollos so made them with Werther’s creamy toffee and a square of milk chocolate. Everyone loved them!

  24. Made this before Christmas. Very easy! Spooned melted chocolate over each – the best!
