Please forgive all the sweets this week. I’m trying to post plenty of holiday treat recipes in case you’re still looking for baking inspiration. Tomorrow, I’ll post an appetizer but then it will be back to a few more sweet treats.
You can’t go wrong with sweet-salty candy. I found these on Mommy’s Kitchen. Tina always has such yummy things on her blog. These candies are easy to make, and taste great. Tina also made some with pecan halves pressed in the top, which sounds great to me, but I decided to go with M&Ms to make the kids happy.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 bag of Rolo candy
- 1 bag of M&M’s or pecan halves
- 1 bag of pretzels (knots or squares)
Place the pretzels on a foil lined baking sheet. Unwrap the rolos and set one on top of each pretzel. Pop it into the oven at 250 degrees for about 4 minutes. The rolos will look about the same, but that’s long enough to make them soft and melty. Gently place and M&M or pecan on top of each rolo and press down a bit. Let them cool completely.
