These are easy pecan chocolate caramel pretzel candies! We make these around the holidays after my husband’s mother showed me how to make them. They are also great anytime of year and you can make lots of different variations. You can replace the Rolo’s in this recipe with just about anything. You can use Hershey Kisses or Hugs, mini-candy bars, you name it! You can also trade out the nut with your favorite – peanuts, cashews, almonds, walnuts…anything would be delicious.
For the basic recipe, here’s what you need:
a large bag of Rolo candies, unwrapped
a bag of small pretzel shapes
(coffee is optional 🙂 )
1. Arrange the pretzels in neat row on a tin foil lined baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Place one rolo on each pretzel.
2. Place the baking sheet in the oven, watch very carefully until the candies are slightly melty (not actually melted). They will look like they are starting to become looser, and more malleable.
3. Take the baking sheet out and place one pecan on each pretzel with still soft. Let the candies cool on the tray and then transfer to a airtight container. Enjoy the chewy deliciousness!
