The only reason I added the word "Cookie" to the title of this recipe was because I took them to a cookie exchange. I guess, legitimately, they're a snack. Picky! Picky! Just consider them "GOOD"! Most of the "prep" time is unwrapping the Rolos.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 96 miniature pretzels
  • 48 Rolo chocolates


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place unbroken mini knotted pretzels in one layer onto a cookie sheet.
  3. Unwrap the "Rolos" and place one on top of each pretzel.
  4. Slide the cookie sheet into the oven for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes (until Rolos get shiny, but still hold their shape.
  5. Take cookie sheet out of oven.
  6. Place another unbroken pretzel on top of each Rolo and press down.
  7. Place cookie sheet in freezer for @ 10 minutes for chocolate to re-set.
  8. Scrape pretzels off of cookie sheet with spatula.
  9. NOTE: Do not try to slide Rolo Pretzels off of cookie sheet if chocolate isn't set - the chocolate will smear all over the place. If you don't want to do the "freeze" method, wait about 1/2 an hour and then "pick up" each Rolo Pretzel and set it somewhere to cool completely (It's going to take a while).
  10. I usually get 48 "cookies" on one cookie sheet.

I can't believe I forgot to review this; I have made this several times now. I use the checkerboard pretzels and these are so cute and taste so good. Love how easy they are as well. I use the freezer method for hardening and have not had any problems at all. When I made these to take to a potluck, I put 2 "cookies" each into decorated paper liners for mini muffins, then placed them on a large tray. The looked so festive and everyone loved them!
