WHAT TO SERVE WITH PRETZEL BITES
I love to serve these rolo pretzel bites on a dessert table for the holidays alongside these Air Fryer Eggnog Cookies or these Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies. But, no matter what you serve them with this simple recipe is always a crowd pleaser.
Here are a few tips to make sure that your pretzel bites turn out perfectly every time that you make them.
- If you want to transport your Rolo pretzel bites, make sure that they are completely cool before stacking or packaging them up. Otherwise, the melted candy will stick together and cause a mess!
- You can also melt different types of chocolate instead of Rolos. Such as peanut butter cups, Hershey Kisses, or your favorite chocolate candy.
- Make sure that you watch the pretzel bites carefully while they bake as they can burn quickly.
- If you are a fan of white chocolate, you can switch up the chocolate candies and use white chocolate rolos on top of each pretzel.
- Use pecans if you want rolo pretzel turtles, or M&M’s for a festive holiday season treat.
HOW TO STORE
These no-bake bites can be stored in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks. Make sure that the Rolo pretzel bites have cooled completely before storing. If you need to stack these, I recommend placing a layer of parchment paper in between the stacks.
