One of my favorite treats to make around the holidays is Rolo Pretzel Bites. They are just about the easiest things EVER to make–seriously 4 minutes, people!!!  I love to experiment with the same basic recipe, and I’ve tried quite a few different variations.  I first made them using Mint M&M’s during the Christmas holiday, and I fell in {love} with them.  I knew then that they would be perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!  Mint Pretzel Bites are my new favorite treat. :)

The combination of sweet and salty is irresistible, and the chewy caramel with the crunch of the mint M&Ms is perfection.  You might want to make these when you’re going to give some away, otherwise you will want to eat the whole batch.  You’ve been warned.  :)

I also really like all the different colors of green–it makes for a pretty presentation!  Wrap these up in a clear treat bag, tie with cute ribbon or baker’s twine along with a fun tag, and you’ve got the perfect treat to drop on a neighbor or friend’s porch or hang on their doorknob.   Having people over for dinner, or for a game night?  Put these out in a bowl and watch them disappear!

My kids LOVE helping to make these, and they are always in charge of unwrapping the Rolo candies.  The perks?  I don’t have to unwrap, and they get to sample the candy–match made in heaven!

  1. Just sent hubby to get some mint m & m’s going to do a test run on these before I take them to the office on St. Paddy’s Day! Thanks so much! :)

  2. Hi Kierste are the pretzels you use small rings? I find it very difficult to locat mini circle pretzels which are perfect for this treat. If they are would you care to share the brand so that I can begin the hunt for them?

    1. Victoria,

      They aren’t a perfect ring, with nothing in the middle–the are like a miniature soft pretzel shape, like the ones you buy at the mall to eat, lol. They have the criss-cross loop in the middle, which actually what you need, so you have something to set the Rolos on. I hope that makes sense!

  3. Made these last night for our church’s game night and they were a huge success! My husband accidentally bought dark chocolate M&Ms, but they worked fine. We came home with an empty container. I can’t wait until the holidays because these were super fast & easy to make and the holiday M&Ms will look so festive. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!!
