Valentine's Day Caramel Pretzel Bites
Valentine's Day Caramel Pretzel Bites are the perfect festive treat with pretzels, Rolo candy, pink and red m&m's, and heart shaped pretzels.
Servings 60 pretzel bites
- 60 Pretzel Snaps the square shaped pretzels
- 60 Rolo candies unwrapped
- Valentine's Mix M&M's pink, red, and white m&m's
- heart shaped OR Valentine's Day colored sprinkles
Heat oven to 250°. Line a cookie sheet with parchemnt paper, silpat liner, or tin foil.
Lay the pretzels on the cookie sheet. Place an unwrapped Rolo on the center of each pretzel square.
Bake for 4-5 minutes. You just want the chocolate to look glossy. The Rolo should not be broken, it should still look like the Rolo shape.
Immediately place a m&m on the top of each Rolo and gently press down. Sprinkle the warm chocolate with sprinkles. * I work one row at a time when I do this. Place the m&m's onto one row of pretzels and then go back and sprinkle some sprinkles on each one. I then repeat with the remaining rows.
Let cool down at room temperature (so the chocolate can firm back up) for about 2 hours. To speed up the cooling process place the cookie sheet in the fridge for 20-30 minutes.
Store leftovers, covered, at room temperature.
Nutrition Facts : Each pretzel bite is equal to 41 calories and the nutrition information listed.
Pretzels : I prefer the square shaped pretzels for this recipe, labeled as Snaps on the bag, but if you can't find them then go ahead and use regular shaped pretzel twists.
Serving Size : You don't have to make 60 of these pretzel bites. Make as little or as much as you want. The cook time and directions will not change if you increase the amount of pretzel bites or decrease it.
