Ingredient Notes

  • Pretzels: For this recipe pretzel snaps, also known as the square shaped ones, will work the best. I would not recommend using the twist shaped pretzels as they will become messy when the chocolate is melted.
Pretzels, rolos and nuts.

Variations and Substitutions

  • Caramel Chocolate Candies – Swap the Rolo’s for your favorite chocolate covered caramel candies. Or use a square of a chocolate bar and a mini soft caramel candy.
  • Chocolate Peanut Cups – Use mini Reese’s peanut butter cups in place of Rolo candies.
  • Air Fryer – For quicker preheat time, you can opt for using an air fryer, although you might need to split into 2 batches depending on how big your air fryer is.

Start by preheating the oven to 325 degrees f. Prepare your pan by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper.

STEP 2: ARRANGE PRETZELS ANS CANDIES

Then, arrange the pretzels in a single layer on the baking sheet. On top of each pretzel square you will want to place one Rolo candy on top of each one.

Add to the preheated oven, flash bake for 2 minutes, just enough to melt the rolo candies. Remove from oven and immediately press a pecan half on top the of the melted candy, press down slightly.

Place in the fridge for at least 15 minutes to get the chocolate to set.
