These Rolo pretzel sandwiches are so easy to make and so delicious too! Perfect for holiday snacking or gifting!
I can’t believe there’s only one week left until Christmas! I’ve been busy this last week finishing up my shopping and making lots of treats to share with friends and family. This will be our first Christmas at home in Portland, and I’ve been pretty bummed that I won’t be able to spend the holidays with my family. To cheer myself up, I’ve been filling my days with Christmas activities and traditions, both new and old. One of my favorite Christmas traditions that I’ve established during the last few years is setting aside a day to dip all the yummy things in chocolate!
We’ve dipped lots of different treats over the years, and they’ve all turned out delicious. This year, I decided to dip chocolate toffee shortbread cookies (recipe coming soon!), cinnamon bears, Oreo cookies, and these fun and delicious Rolo pretzel sandwiches. I’m hardly reinventing the wheel here, and these have been around forever, but they’re too tasty not to share! They’re the perfect balance of textures and flavors – crunchy and chewy, salty and sweet. They’re so addicting that I would eat an embarrassing amount of them if left to my own devices, so the only solution is to make them and give them away as soon as possible.
I dipped half of mine in white chocolate and half in milk chocolate, then sprinkled half of each group with holiday sprinkles, and drizzled the other half with the contrasting color of chocolate. It made for a pretty and festive combination of treats!
You can definitely dip them all of the way in the chocolate if you prefer, but I like dipping them halfway so you can see all of the components.
These Rolo pretzel sandwiches are the perfect way to brighten up a tray of holiday treats, or to package up for friends and neighbors for a quick holiday gift. You don’t even have to tell everyone how easy they are to make!
Be sure to come back on Wednesday, when I’ll be sharing my chocolate toffee shortbread cookies, and how I packaged up all the treats I made so I could send them to family far away!
Rolo Pretzel SandwichesPrint Recipe
- 36 Rolo candies
- 72 small pretzels
- 8 ounces almond bark or candy melts
- sprinkles or contrasting colored candy melts if desired
- Preheat the oven to 325. Line a baking sheet with parchment or silicone. Place half of the pretzels on the baking sheet, and top each with a Rolo candy. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven for three minutes, until the Rolo candies are softened but not melted. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and top each Rolo with another pretzel, pressing down lightly to make a sandwich. Let cool completely.
- Melt the almond bark according to the package directions. Dip the pretzel sandwiches into the almond bark (I like to dip only halfway) and let cool. Drizzle with a contrasting color of almond bark or candy melts, if desired, or add sprinkles before the almond bark hardens. Store in an airtight container.
