In our opinion, the best part of celebrating any holiday is making the festive treats. St. Patrick’s Day is no exception! This week we made Shamrock Pretzel Bites. Aren’t they sweet? Wanna make your little leprechauns green with envy? Whip up a batch and you are sure to be their lucky charm! We hope you had a fun St. Patrick’s Day!
Shamrock Pretzel Bites
You Will Need:
1 bag Mini Pretzels
1 bag Plain M&Ms (sorted, get only the green ones)
1 bag Rolo candy
Step 1: Assemble all your supplies. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Step 2: Arrange 3 mini pretzels into the shape of a shamrock, with the bottoms grouped together. Repeat this step until your cookie sheet is full of pretzel shamrocks.
Step 3: Place an unwrapped Rolo candy into the center of each pretzel shamrock so that the Rolo is touching all three pretzels.
Step 4: Carefully place cookie sheet in oven and bake for 3-5 minutes at 350 degrees until the caramel gets soft. Remove from oven.
Step 5: Immediately after you remove from oven place an M&M on the top of the Rolo. Press gently down on the Rolo candy, adjusting the pretzels so that they are still grouped close.
Step 6: Let cool completely. You can stick them in the freezer for a few minutes to speed this process up.
Step 7: Share and enjoy!
