The holidays are hectic.

Cookie exchanges, gift-giving, fitting everyone in, it’s exhausting.

These salty pretzel bites offer the sweet and salty flavors we all love,

These m&m pretzel bites are one of our family favorites as a favorite holiday tradition.

These Holiday Pretzel Bites don’t require anything fancy, not even a measuring cup!

No tempering chocolate or measuring anything!


They are that simple.

They taste just like your classic chocolate-covered pretzels.

The best part, each one is the perfect bite.

The hardest part is unwrapping the rolos (but you can buy a bag of them already unwrapped!).

Three ingredients are all you need to make these M&M Pretzel bites.

Rolosor Hershey’s Kisses or Hershey’s Hugs

Caramel enveloped in chocolate. Look for the package that is unwrapped for easy, quick candy-making.

You can skip the caramel and use Hershey’s kisses or Hershey’s hugs instead.


We prefer square pretzels or waffle pretzels. They fit the Rolo candy perfectly and are bite-size, but mini and round pretzels also work well.

m&m candy

We use the traditional red m&m and green m&m, but mix and match flavors and colors.


For a delicious substitute, use pecan halves instead of M&Ms.

Try Hershey Kisses or hershey hugs in place of the rolos.

Switch to Reese’s Pieces for a peanut butter flair.

How Easy Are These to Make?

The process is as simple as the ingredients.
