Here’s what you’ll need to make rolo pretzel bites:
This recipe uses only four ingredients, they can be picked up at your local grocery store or you can order the ingredients online and have them shipped to your home! You can’t be the convenience of that!
You will need snaps pretzels. This is important because we’re making little sandwiches and it doesn’t work so well with the bigger holes on regular mini pretzels. You will also need some Rolo candies, white baking chips to melt, and holiday sprinkles!
I used the Christmas tree and lights sprinkle mix from Walmart, you can use whatever holiday themed sprinkles you have access to or have on hand.
How to make pretzel candy bites with rolos:
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Unwrap Rolo candy
Place Snaps pretzels on a baking sheet, about ½ inch apart.
Place a Rolo candy on top of each, and bake in the oven for 3 minutes.
Remove from the oven, and top each Rolo pretzel with another pretzel, pushing down lightly.
Place the pan in the refrigerator until the chocolate is firm.
Once chocolate is firm, fill a pot with 1 inch of water.
Place white chocolate in a heat safe glass bowl, and place on top of the pot, making sure that the bowl doesn’t touch the water.
Heat on medium/low heat, stirring often, until chocolate is melted.
Remove the pretzels from the refrigerator and start dipping them into the melted white chocolate, covereding about half the pretzel.
Place on a parchment sheet, and top the visible white chocolate with sprinkles.
Allow white chocolate to set before eating.
Note: if you have kids making this recipe you can always have them melt the chocolate in the microwave. They can put the chips in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 10-15 seconds at a time, stirring in between until all are melted!
