Rolo Pretzels

Rolo Pretzels are a simple chocolatey treat that are great for parties, get togethers, or a sweet and salty movie night snack.

These goodies literally take 3 ingredients, and they’re easy enough that the kids can help out! We love to make them for a family night snack whenever we have some M&M’s laying around. If not these, then we’ll make White Chocolate M&M Popcorn, or Giant M&M Cookies!

An Easy 3 Ingredient Treat!

A few weeks ago, we decided to make these tasty little Rolo Pretzels for Family Night since we had all the ingredients on hand (it only takes 3!).

The best part for the kids was being able to help put them together. The best part for me was that they took minutes to make and were super simple!! Not a surprise, but they were gone in minutes and were officially declared “delicious” by the family.

We opted to use regular M&Ms as well as White Chocolate M&Ms for a more Spring-y/Easter treat.

They were both loved, but I admit the White Chocolate Rolo Bites were my favorite!

Ready in MINUTES!

I’m not joking when I say it literally took MINUTES to make these rolo pretzels. A couple minutes to assemble, and 3-5 minutes in the oven. That’s it!!

PREP. Preheat even to 325. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

ASSEMBLE. Place pretzel snaps on your sheet. Place unwrapped rolos on each one.

BAKE. Bake for 3-5 minutes until just a tad melted and still in shape. Take out of oven, and while warm, place M&Ms on them. Let set.

Change it Up

These are beyond simple to customize! Here are a few ideas to change them up…

  • If it is around Christmas time you can use red and green M&Ms or even make the rolo pretzels look like reindeer
  • If M&Ms aren’t your favorite, you can top the rolo with pecans, white chocolate chips, reese pieces etc.
  • You can make rolo sandwiches: squishing a rolo between 2 pretzels. This way isn’t too pretty, but if you want a more salty crunch in each bite this is the way to do it.

Storing Leftover Rolo Pretzels

These are so quick to make, I don’t know that you would ever need to make these ahead of time, although you can make these 1-2 days before as long as they’re stored in an air-tight container.

I would suggest keeping them at room temperature because frozen caramel or even cold rolos are hard to eat. 

After you make them, these Rolo Pretzels should be able to last for up to a week when STORED in an airtight container.

      These were a fun, easy, no big mess in the kitchen, activity for me and the kids. These turned out so festive with holiday m&m’s!

    1. You could make them the day before or maybe even a couple days, if left in an air-tight container. Hope that help and hope you like them!

    I usually make these with a Hershey kiss and a peanut butter M&M on top. I really love this version with the Rollo as well.
