I couldn't help but share one of my most favorite, SUPER EASY holiday snacks again on the blog, because they're just DELISH!
About 3 years ago my friend Susan brought these scrumptious, super simple pretzel, chocolate, caramel treats to Jen's infamous yearly cookie exchange party... and it changed my life.
Okay that's a bit dramatic, but they have definitely become one of my most favorite treats due to the fact they they have both the salty AND sweet factor goin' on.
They are pretty much the quickest, most shareable holiday snack to make too... so that's a definite bonus. The only part that takes a while is the unwrapping of the Rolos candies, so I usually put my kiddos to work doing that part, and they love it!
Once everything is unwrapped and ready to go, all you have to do is line up your pretzels on a baking sheet (I use parchment paper so I don't have to wash anything afterwards), top off each pretzel square with a Rolo and throw them in a 250 degree oven for 4-5 minutes.
You don't want the chocolate to melt completely, just enough that it's squishable (yup, that's a word). After you pull the pan out, you can top them however you please.
Pecan halves, M&M's or our favorite way... just with another pretzel top.
In our opinion the chocolate/caramel/pretzel "sandwich" is the ultimate best sweet to salty ratio
To cool these treats we just set the pan outside on the front porch for a little while, since it's usually so cold here, but obviously you could put them in the fridge too.
What's your favorite holiday treat!?
