Pretzel Rolo Candies

How adorable are these Pretzel Rolo Candies?  I used Christmas colored peanut M&Ms and pretzel wheels this time.  In the past I have used square pretzels as well as topping with pecans to make pretzel turtles.  I left a plate of these Pretzel Rolo Candies and Christmas Bark for my dog walker today too.  These would make a great homemade holiday gift if you package them up in cute bags or containers. 

Pretzel Rolo Candies

1 package of mini pretzels
1 package of rolo candy
1 package of peanut M&Ms


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Place pretzels in a single layer on baking sheet.  (You may also line the baking sheet with foil but it’s not necessary.)

Unwrap a rolo and place on top of a pretzel.  Repeat.

Bake for 3 minutes, until rolo candies are softened but not melted.  

Remove from oven and lightly press an M&M on top of each rolo.

Allow to cool before storing in an air-tight container.  You can store them in the refrigerator as well.

*Note: I was able to make exactly 54 candies since I had 54 rolo candies in the package.

Buddy was waiting in the kitchen while I was making these pretzel rolo candies...he was hoping I was making doggie treats!
