Christmas Rolo Pretzels with M&M’s Recipe


  • Mini pretzels (square or round)
  • Rolo candies (unwrapped)
  • Christmas-themed M&M’s


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 250°F (120°C).
  2. Prepare the Pretzels: Lay out the pretzels in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  3. Place Rolos on Pretzels: Place one unwrapped Rolo candy on top of each pretzel. Make sure the Rolo is centered on the pretzel.
  4. Bake: Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven for about 3-4 minutes or until the Rolos are soft but not completely melted. Keep an eye on them to avoid over-melting.
  5. Add M&M’s: As soon as you take the pretzels out of the oven, press one Christmas-themed M&M into the center of each Rolo. The heat from the Rolo will help the M&M adhere.
  6. Cool: Allow the pretzels to cool completely. You can speed up the process by placing them in the refrigerator for a short time.
  7. Serve: Once the chocolate has hardened, your Christmas Rolo Pretzels with M&M’s are ready to be served! Arrange them on a festive plate or package them in holiday bags for gift-giving.

These treats are not only delicious but also make for a cute and festive addition to your holiday celebrations. Feel free to get creative with the colors of M&M’s to match the holiday theme you prefer. Enjoy making and sharing these delightful Christmas treats!

Making Christmas Rolo Pretzels with M&M’s is a simple process, but here are some tips to ensure the best results:

  1. Use Fresh Ingredients: Make sure your Rolos and M&M’s are fresh and not expired. Fresh ingredients will result in better taste and texture.
  2. Quality Pretzels: Choose good-quality mini pretzels. The pretzels serve as the base for your treats, so selecting a tasty brand can enhance the overall flavor.
  3. Even Heating: When melting the Rolos in the oven, keep a close eye on them to ensure even heating. You want the Rolos to be soft but not completely melted. Overheating can cause the caramel to burn.
  4. Quick M&M Placement: As soon as you take the pretzels out of the oven, work quickly to press the M&M into the center of the Rolo. The residual heat will help the M&M adhere properly.
  5. Variety of M&M’s: Choose a variety of Christmas-themed M&M’s to add a festive touch. You can use red and green M&M’s or mix in other holiday colors to make the treats visually appealing.
  6. Cooling Time: Allow the pretzels to cool completely before serving or packaging. Cooling helps the chocolate and caramel set, ensuring a nice texture when you bite into the treats.
  7. Avoid Overcrowding: Give each pretzel enough space on the baking sheet to ensure even heating. Overcrowding can lead to uneven melting and a less attractive final product.
  8. Presentation: Arrange the finished pretzels on a festive plate or tray for serving. If you’re giving them as gifts, consider packaging them in holiday-themed bags or boxes for a delightful presentation.
  9. Store Properly: Store the Christmas Rolo Pretzels in an airtight container at room temperature. If needed, you can refrigerate them briefly to speed up the setting process, but bring them back to room temperature before serving.
  10. Get Creative: Feel free to get creative with the recipe. Add sprinkles, drizzle melted white chocolate over the top, or experiment with different types of M&M’s for a unique twist.

Remember to have fun with the process, and enjoy making and sharing these festive treats during the holiday season!
