A Take on one of My Favorite Candy Bars

These candies are very similar in taste to one of my favorite candy bars, Take 5.  I love the mixture of the sweet, salt, and caramel; you just can't get any better than that.  I'm always looking for different combinations of sweet and salty and I will try almost anything at least once. 

The first time I had these candies Spencer and I were at our friends engagement party, I tried one and I was hooked.  I had a couple and then started trying to figure out what all it took to make these.  Spencer told me it was just pretzels, Rolos, and pecans; I thought that was too easy and there had to be more to it.  When we finally started talking to the host he told us that it was just pretzels, Rolos and pecans; I couldn't believe it.  That was almost too easy to make these tastey candies; there's not much to them at all.

I wanted to make these so bad after I tried them at the party but I really didn't have a good excuse.  I didn't want to make a batch just have sitting at the house since it made so many and they are so addicting.  Finally when Christmas came around Spencer's mom asked me to bring some snacks and appetizers over so we could have them to nibble on until the meal was ready.  Since the opportunity presented itself to make these I took it!  I'm so glad I made them, they were such a hit with everyone there.  The best thing is they are so easy!!!

Pretzel Candies


Chocolate Pretzel Candy


Pretzel Candies

1 Bag small pretzels (I used pretzel waffles because the store was out of regular pretzels

1 Package Rolos candy

1 Package of pecan halves



Preheat oven to 200 F.

Line a baking sheet with foil and place pretzels in single rows on foil.  Unwrap the Rolo candies and place 1 Rolo on each pretzel.  Once all the pretzels are covered place in oven for 2-3 minutes, just until the candies are softened.  

Remove from oven and place pretzels on top of Rolos and press down.  Repeat process until all pretzels are topped.
