Rolo Pretzel Bites

This is a quick, easy and tasty holiday treat, great for gift giving.  No particular culinary skills required.  I think this recipe came from my friend Jennifer Harmon.  Give em a try but make a lot if you want to have any left to give away!

1 bag tiny twist pretzels

1 bag Rolos, unwrapped

Pampered Chef Sweet Caramel Sprinkles (optional)

Preheat oven to 250.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  (Don’t freak out about the parchment paper, you can now buy it in the grocery store.  It is in the same aisle as aluminum foil and plastic wrap.)  Place as many unbroken pretzels on the cookie sheet as you like.  Top each pretzel with an unwrapped Rolo candy.  Place in oven 2 – 5 minutes.  Remove from oven.   Rolos will be melted so just use the back of a spoon to smush (technical baking term) them down onto the pretzel.  I topped mine with PC Sweet Caramel Sprinkles but you could leave them as is or sprinkle with red and/or green sprinkles or whatever you like.  You can let them sit on the counter until the candy is set or you can put the cookie sheet in the fridge for a quicker set.  As the Barefoot Contessa would say, “How easy is that?”.
