This is a new twist on the chocolate covered pretzel. One of the other mothers at school made them for a Christmas treat. The combination of nuts, chocolate and carmel is always a crowd pleaser. And they are easy enough the kids can help.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 24 small pretzels
  • 24 Rolo chocolates, unwrapped
  • 24 pecan halves


  1. Preheat oven to 250°F Place pretzels in a single layer on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  2. Put one rolo on each pretzel.
  3. Put the rolo/pretzels in the oven until the rolos soften and start to melt.
  4. Remove from the oven and push one pecan half down in the middle of each rolo.
  5. Let cool.
  6. Remove from the parchment and store in an air tight container.

I got this recipe from a supermarket flier this year. These are great! And addicting. I made, like, 3 batches of them and ate one whole batch by myself. Also, I melted the chocolate in the microwave instead of the oven, 30 seconds at a time, testing for how soft the chocolate was.

What an easy, quick and delicious addition to my christmas tray! I test made them tonight (made a dozen) and they were gone within minutes. I baked for three minutes and topped half with M&Ms (for my daughter) and the other half with Pecans. I can't wait to try these once I have made and frozen them. I love to find things I can freeze and pull out when I need them! Thank you so much.

I make these every Christmas and they are the FIRST thing to dissapear off the goody treats! To jazz them up a bit, I drizzle them with melted almond bark once I have put the nuts on the rolos, and then I put Christmas sprinkles on them. I put them in the freezer for about five minutes to set up the almond bark. They keep REALLY well in freezer too - I usually make a massive batch and then just take them out as I need them...yummy!!
