The holidays can be busy, and sometimes you just want an easy, tasty treat to take to your party or family gathering. That’s where these Rolo pretzel bites come in.

They’re SO easy to make and taste amazing!

You only need a few simple ingredients to make these Rolo pretzel turtles. The recipe really doesn’t require any baking. It’s more of “assembling” — which makes it a great activity to do with kids. (Even the littlest ones can help out by placing the M&M in the center of each pretzel.)

Trust me — the hardest part of this recipe is unwrapping the Rolos. Otherwise, they come together in minutes. You can even make them in the microwave!

These are just a great sweet and salty treat. You’ve got crunchy pretzels, rich and sweet Rolos, and a crunchy, brightly colored M&M on top. No wonder they disappear quickly at every party!
These Rolo Pretzel Bites are fun salty treat to make with your kids and great for an easy Christmas cookie exchange. All you need for these easy treats are pretzels, rolo candy, and pecans or M&Ms.
