Rolo Pretzels with Pretzel M&M’s

Jump to Recipe

Rolo Pretzels with M&M's make a great holiday treat or any day treat!

Is there a twelve step program for Pretzel M&M addiction? If so, sign me up. I can’t get enough of these fun, colorful candies. I sent the Pretzel M&M cookies with Josh on his hiking trip. I was left with an empty, treat-less house. Sad! To cheer myslef up, I made a fun and easy treat, Rolo Pretzels with M&M’s.

I usually make Rolo pretzel turtles, everyone loves them. This time, I left out the pecans and used Pretzel M&M’s to smash down the Rolo candy. I love the burst of color the M&M’s add. The caramel will ooze, the chocolate will melt and make a mess of your fingers, and you will want to eat them all in one sitting. That is not a bad thing though:)

You can use your favorite M&M candy. Peanut, regular, peanut butter, crispy, or holiday M&M’s would be good too! Or you could do the traditional pecans, but we like the pop of color from the M&M’s!

Rolo Pretzels with Pretzel M&M’s are fun to make and eat. Kids and adults will go crazy for this sweet and salty treat. And if anyone needs Pretzel M&M addiction support, I am here for you!

  1. OK…I am not a chocolate fanatic but these look incredible. I could eat these for breakfast right now 😉 What a great treat

  2. I made similar treats for our christmas goodies!! I used Hershey Kisses and plain M&Ms for some and for others I did Rolos with a hazelnut on top. Please don’t hate me, but I just did not like the pretzel M&Ms. They weren’t pretzel-y enough for me. Tasted like a Whopper that wasn’t sweet or something…sorry 🙁 I LOVE chocolate and pretzel together usually tough. You treats look adorable too!!

  3. I’ve got a coupon for a big bag of these M&M’s. Also, I need a little cooking project for my boys and I. “You can roll a roll-o to your pal. It’s chocolate covered caramel. . . ” Thanks!

    1. The kitchen is coming along. It is a lot of work, but worth it already. I am loving the new open floor plan. The hardwood floors are next on the list!

  4. These are SO good, but I really like pecans with the Rolo’s. I also do peppermint Hershey Kisses (unfortunately a seasonal item) with dark chocolate M&M’s. YUM!!!

  5. What darling little cookies! I have just the place to take these little gems to this weekend. Thanks for the recipe 🙂

  6. I cannot even tell you just how addicted to these I am. I tossed them into a blondie recipe tonight with dark chocolate and am in love. Cannot wait to try these! Fabulous idea!

  7. Oh Maria. I’m kind of sorry I ever saw this post. I’m pretty good at saying no to sweets but I have a huge thing for Rolos. They were one of favorites as a kid and I still love the chocolate and caramel combo. What a perfect treat that is quick and easy. We are having a big party this weekend and there will be two fancy cakes. I’m thinking I will make these too just to balance. I’m guessing these will be the first things to go!

  8. I made these for our family reunion but left them home because I couldn’t stand the thought of sharing them with everyone. We tried them with both pretzel M & Ms and Peanut Butter M & Ms. They were both mighty tasty but I liked the peanut butter ones the most. Try it!

  9. Sign me up for the pretzel m&m addiction program!!! I love those things! I have made these before using peanut m&ms but I love the idea of the pretzel m&ms! I am putting this on my “must make” list 🙂

  10. thank you for the FABULOUS recipe! i’m in my third year of medical school and every 5 days we have call which means my team spends 30 hours straight in the hospital…everyone always brings snacks and so i brought these (substituting peanut butter m&ms for pretzel). they were a HUGE hit with everyone – thanks for the great, quick recipe!

  11. wpw – i stumbled upon your site today. love it! and i can’t wait to make the pretzel m & m cookies. and the rolo pretzels. and the rolo cookies. it is going to a busy and delicious weekend at the pieroni house. thank you!!

  12. I made these today for a tailgate for a concert we’re going to. My friends are going to love them!! I made them with orange and blue m&m’s for my favorite team, the Florida Gators, who will be playing while we are at the concert! 🙂 Thank you for this great idea for a fun and easy snack!!!

  13. I don’t think there’s a limit to how many M & M’s I could eat in one sitting. My favorite has always been peanut, but pretzel has officially tied it for 1st!!! Love this recipe and best of all, seems super simple, which is always a plus. Thanks!

  14. What a great idea! I just made these with regular M&Ms for my twin daughters preschool class. I found holiday pretzels at Sam’s Club – they are in the shapes of a star, a bell, and a tree. So cute! It was a simple treat to make and my four year olds were able to help with the whole process. They set out the pretzels, put the rolos on, and pushed the m&ms in! Now, they can say they made the snack for their class. I just found your site and I love it! Thank you for the great idea! 🙂

  15. Okay, now I’m straight up torturing myself. But if you weren’t so creative and inventive and being all “candy whisperer” on me, we wouldn’t have this problem, right?! 🙂 these bites are dang cute!

  16. Had these treats at my daughters house and immediately fell in love with these snacks. Bought all the ingredients and can’t wait to make them for myself (and my husband if he wants some)

  17. I just made these and they are SOOOOOOOOOO good!!!! i wanted to make them for the freezer for unexpected guest but they are so good i had to eat 3 of them – and i’m supposed to be on a diet to lose the 4 lbs i just put on!!!!!!!

  18. I love this recipe! Just FYI, 350 for 4 minutes was waaaaaaay too long for mine! Totally my fault, I should have watched them closer, but just wanted to share to try to keep someone else from making the same mistake. Mine turned out to be a melted mess…a delicious melted mess, but not quite pretty enough to give away like I had hoped!

  19. Yes, i too have enjoyed making -and devouring- these treats for years. I prefer the regular M&M’s. I have always softened the treats at 250’F for 10 mins, but will try higher temp next time.
    One hint: After applying the M&M/pecan half and giving each one a little smoosh into the melty rolo, i place the entire cookie sheet into the freezer for 10 mins or so, to help them speedily set up. Then i store in sealable plastic box, parchment or waxed paper between layers, placed in frig. Obviously, we are the fans of less-gooey-more-chewy treats. To eat, just take a few (or, in my case, a handful) out of the box and let them sit at room temp for 5 mins or as long as u can resist…

  20. Oops, i should have said 200’F for 5 mins, NOT 10, i must be having Holiday brain freeze!
    I am checking out all your other recipes. So glad to find this site!

  21. How long do you think these last stored in a bag or Tupperware? I wanna make them for a party but I don’t know how far in advance I can make them…

  22. This is one of our very favorite holiday treat- Easter we do pastels, Valentine’s Day red! But, I have not been able to find this size pretzel in the stores for about 3 years.
    Where might I find this- we live in St.Louis.

  23. I am making these for my sons french class they are having a marti gra party i got purple green and yellow m&ms that match the decorations they are very cute and easy to transport to school
