  • 56 pretzel snaps
  • 56 Rolo candies, unwrapped
  • 56 Christmas M&M's or whole pecans, toasted


  • Preheat oven to 200°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Arrange the pretzels on the baking sheets and top each pretzel with an unwrapped Rolo candy.
  • Bake for 3-5 minutes until the chocolate is shiny and soft enough that you can press an M&M or pecan into it. Let sit until cooled and the chocolate has hardened again.


  • Storage: Keep the Rolo pretzels in an airtight container on the counter at room temperature for 1-2 weeks.
  • Toasting pecans: If you are planning to top your Rolo pretzels with pecans, I highly recommend toasting them first to bring out their flavor. The easiest way is to just scatter your pretzels on a baking sheet and pop them in a 350°F oven to 8-10 minutes until they smell toasty.
  • Variation: You can use mini Reese's peanut butter cups or Hershey's Kisses or Hugs in place of the Rolos if you prefer.
  • Serving size: I consider 4 Rolo pretzels to be a serving size since they are small.
