I have seen many recipes for these this year. We have made a version in the past where we did not dip them in chocolate. They are EXCELLENT! We used mini rolos and also cut Kraft caramels in half. I used mini pretzels for these.
Caramel/Rolo Pretzel Bites
adapted from many recipes on the web
caramels(cut in half)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
Layer all pretzels on the sheet. Beth used the mini pretzels and mini rolos.
Place half of caramel squares or rolos on each pretzel.
Bake in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes. The caramel will be melty but not completely filing the holes of pretzels. It will spread as it cools.
Cool pretzels completely before dipping in chocolate.
When cool, dip pretzels in chocolate (cover whole pretzels or dip halves)
