5 Minute Salty & Sweet Treat!

Try some variations by using other chocolate candies like Milky Ways and adding your favorite nut on top of the chocolate instead of a second pretzel!


  • Bag of bite size pretzels (I used Butter Snaps but you can use regular pretzels)
  • Bag of Rolos


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Lay pretzels on cookie sheet
  3. Top each pretzel with a Rolo
  4. Bake for 4 minutes
  5. Remove from oven and lay another pretzel on top of each Rolo - pressing down to form a "sandwich"
  6. Let cool
  7. Enjoy these sweet and salty treats!

Having teens who love getting creative in the kitchen is a very good thing.

So when my fabulous daughter wrote in her cute scrawl on my grocery list:

* Rolos

* Buttersnap Pretzels

I had to pick them up so she could whip up her creation.

  1. Love idea of these, they look so yummmmmy, can hardly wait to make them. I love Rolo’s, one of favorites.
    Sure glad you shared this recipe. Happy New Year

  2. I make these often but top with a pecan (instead of a pretzel) or, at Halloween, a candy corn. Delicious!
