My friend told me about these pretzel rolo pecan bites. You know, like how awesome they were. Like so awesome she couldn’t stop eating them. And she’s not even a candy person. Wait, back up, how can I even have a friend that’s not a candy person? Well, it’s kinda perfect, you see, I get all the candy.

Except for these, she ate ’em all. Kidding, Danielle. (:

Seriously, though, she’s an awesome cook and I always take her advice when it comes to food. Always.

So, here they are.


And, it only takes three ingredients. Whaaat?


Rolos, pretzels and pecan halves, just like the name of the candy. Oh and don’t mind my Christmas colored Rolos, they were on sale. A 75% off sale. Boom.


Now’s the time to make your kids do some work. Sheesh, I made these two kids in my belly, so it’s only fair they help me make these to put back in my belly. Unwrapping 57 Rolos isn’t exactly fun.


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then lay down one pretzel for each Rolo. I had 57 Rolos, so I laid down 57 pretzels. See how I did math there. Place one Rolo on top of each pretzel. Then bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 3 minutes. Just enough to melt the caramel. Don’t be forgetting about these or you’ll have a melted chocolately caramel mess and you’ll hate yourself. Hate. Unwrapped Rolos aren’t easy to come by.


Now’s the time to seize the day, open the gates and… Wait, um. Now’s the time to squish one pecan half on top of each perfectly melted Rolo. Then let these perfect little devils cool completely. Completely, I said.



PS, you’ll probably want to make a double batch, because it’s amazing how fast these things disappear.

    I made 350 of these suckers for Christmas treats this year. I made my kids help unwrap too. 🙂 I make mine without the pecans though. Just a few minutes in the oven at 200* then smash the rolo with the back of a spoon. Delish!
    Oh and I saw what you did there with the Newsies reference. 😉
