Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pretzel Bites

Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pretzel Bites

It’s a been a busy week, and to cap it off, yesterday I had the pleasure of presenting a few light and tasty comfort foods on Austin’s KXAN news channel! It was the most thrilling 3 minutes of my week, I tell ya!

I’ll post the video as soon as I get my hands on it, but first things first! Today I’m sharing with you one of my favorite two-bite treats for holiday parties and selfish snacking… muahaha.

Chocolate Pecan Pretzel Bites

If you’re a little sweet, a little salty, and a bit nutty (for chocolate that is), then these are for you! Crunchy pretzel squares topped with Rolos soften up in a hot oven for just a few minutes. Top them with a pecan (or walnut, almonds or even some dried fruit), press down on ‘em, then drizzle each with a bit of melted chocolate.

… You sure you want to bring these to that party after all?

Turtle Bites

Take 10 minutes to try these simple, sinfully good treats for yourself… and mayyyybee other people too, if they’re lucky! I bet you could convince even the non-chocolate lover in your life to gobble up a couple!

Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pretzel Bites

Yield: Makes 24 bites

Ingredients:

24 small, square grid pretzels

3 packages Rolo candies (8 candies each)

24 pecan halves

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    I love these so hard. My kids and I make something similar with kisses, but I really need to try the rolo version!

    How could you NOT love these? They’ve got a little bit of everything. I’d love to mix them up by topping some with a white chocolate drizzle and some with dark. Thanks for the idea!

    I knew if I stopped by here today I would find something to inspire me and boy was I right! I love the simplicity of this Georgia. I also love the salty, chocolatey, caramel mix. My favorite! This would be a great recipe to make with little ones.

    I’ve made these. They’re super simple and SUPER FAST. (I don’t do the chocolate drizzle on top & they’re still great) I often do the walnut variation, since I prefer those to pecans.
    A useful hint: use the “roll” package of rolos (the ones at the checkout) and don’t get the bag. Since the bagged ones are individually wrapped, you’re going to spend 75% of your time unwrapping all those little foils.

    Any creative ideas on how to package these so I can use them for a gift exchange?

    I’d stack them in a resealable plastic bag, using wax or parchment paper between layers, and put them in a nice little box. They do run the risk of getting “melty” if left unrefrigerated for too long, though.
