If you haven't made Rolo Pretzels, these are a must for any occasion. Rolo Pretzels are a simple and easy to make candy treat that is perfect for the holidays. Not only do they look impressive on a plate, but they taste great too. Salty, sweet, crunchy and gooey in every bite.
But let me tell you a few tips for the perfect bite of sweet and salty. Did you know that Rolo sells packages of Rolo's that are unwrapped? They do! You can find them in the Candy aisle by the other larger bags of Rolos. It's a game changer for this recipe. No one has time to unwrap this many Rolos. I promise.
Although these are done in Red and Green for the Holidays, they can easily be made in the colors of your favorite Sports Team, Pink or Blue for a Gender Reveal event, Pink and Red for Valentines Day, Purple and Green for Halloween and the list could go on. But you get the idea.
Finding an easy treat for the kids to help with is a great way to start (or continue) to get them into the kitchen. With this Rolo Pretzel recipe, the kids can help with every step beside the oven part (for obvious safety reasons).
If Rolo Pretzels are exactly what you’re looking for when it comes to easy to make candy treats, then I recommend checking out my Grinch Pretzel Bites too because they’re just as simple, easy, and delicious.

How to make Rolo Pretzel

How to Store Rolo Pretzels?
After your Rolo pretzels have cooled completely they are no longer at risk of making a huge mess. This makes them easy to store inside a Ziploc bag on the counter until use. You can also store them in a Tupperware style container if you choose.
How long does Rolo Pretzels Last?
Rolo pretzels can actually last up to a couple of weeks (technically even longer because of the shelf life of the individual ingredients). The only reason to put an actual shelf life on these Rolo pretzels is simply that the older they are, the staler the pretzels become. Eating them while fresh is the best way to enjoy them.
Can I make Rolo Pretzel in Microwave?
You could, but it wouldn’t go over well. It would honestly become a sloppy mess and while the mess would be tasty, it would definitely not look appealing.
Can I use regular M&M's or other colors for different Holidays?
Using any differently colored M&M is a great way to get the themes across at any party or holiday. Pastels for Easter or a baby shower, Rainbows or Green for Saint Patricks Day, etc. just to name a few examples.
