I have been MIA for a week now. Mainly because I wanted to spend down time with family. Our Christmas was a fun blur of family outings, Christmas lights and cooking. I hope you had a very merry one! I baked and pinned some awesome cookies for next year.
At the moment I’ve been thinking about not cooking. So this is my go to easy sweet treat recipe for any of those after Christmas parties and New Years get togethers. Rolo Pretzels are just what the name says. Rolos and pretzels. They’re super easy and super good. They also fall under that whole new wave of salted caramel pretzel awesomeness.
I also love that while they’re homemade the hardest part in making them is in opening the individual Rolos. I recommend if you have a child they help out by doing that task.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Lay down as many pretzels as will fit in a single layer or just as many as you want. I roughly make 50 at a time. Place the unwrapped Rolos in the center of each pretzel. Pop in the oven for 5-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and place another pretzel on top of the Rolo and squish down. Be careful that caramel can feel like hot glue. Oh and you’re done. Cool for 10-20 minutes.
These are really good. I first came upon them while I was teaching Kindergarten during teacher appreciation week. A parent dropped them off and I was in love. I prefer to use the square pretzels because they seem to keep more of the Rolo inside while squishing.
These are great if you feel like bringing something to an upcoming party and just don’t want to actually bake. Think New Years Eve party!
Christmas was amazing! Row got a wagon from Santa and decided to open her gifts while inside until half way through when she crashed.
