Day 69: Rolo Pretzel Bites

Rolo Pretzel Bites are the perfect combination of salty and sweet. It is one of those snacks that you should always keep the 3 ingredients on hand because they can be made in a snap. And you can make exactly the amount you want to feed only yourself or the whole family, so you aren't left with leftovers sitting around to tempt you.

This is a slight variation from the original version. The 3 ingredients are pretzel twists, rolos and pretzel M&M's. The original version uses a pecan half in place of the pretzel M&M, giving it more of a turtle taste. I had a bag of Pretzel M&M's in my baking cabinet so I decided to use them instead. Also, I like to use a waffle shaped pretzel instead of the traditional twist.

Preheat oven to 300 deg.  Place a sheet of foil on a baking sheet. Set desired number of pretzels on the foil then top the pretzel with a Rolo. Place in the oven for about 3-4 minutes or until Rolo is soft. Remove from the oven and push a pretzel M&M onto the Rolo. Place in the fridge for about 15 minutes or until set.

The perfect little snack when you don't know whether you want salty or sweet and only 43 calories per bite!
