These Rolo pretzel bites combine Rolos and pretzels, treats amazing in their own right, into a dessert that is somehow more than the sum of its parts.
You can decorate this however you like, even making artisanal looking pretzel sandwiches that look like they come from a French confectioner.
Rolo Pretzel Bites
Rolo pretzel bites combine salty crunchiness with a sweet, chewy elasticity to make an incredibly delicious party snack. For the less social among us, they also make for a great movie snack when eaten by the handful.
You can either make a simple layered option with a mini pretzel and a rolo, or you can top it however you like. Different colored M&Ms, melting candy to turn the whole thing into a solid candy, or even nuts like pecans to add a toastier, crunchy flavor to the mix.
Definitely make sure you turn these into pretzel sandwiches as well!

How to Make These Rolo Pretzel Bites Your Own
The best part about this recipe is the sheer amount of customizability it offers. You can make a basic layered pretzel bite that is incredibly delicious all on its own, or you can make a pretzel sandwich with an extra pretzel, top it with nuts and dip it in melting candy or chocolate.
Let your imagination run wild here – sprinkles, little candy stars, or even broken up pieces of Oreos – whatever you think looks good and helps make these delicious is what you should do.
How to Store Your Rolo Pretzel Bites
If you happen to possess the self-control that most of us lack, you might be left with some Rolo pretzel bites leftover, so how should you store them?
As always, an airtight container is your friend here, especially one with a tightly sealing lid. To help preserve the crunch and crisp snap of the chocolate of the Rolo, you can easily keep these in the freezer.
Whenever you feel like a sweet, crunchy snack, eat them straight of the freezer, or you can let them defrost at room temperature.
