We love making these yummy salty sweet treats all through out the year. Most of the time we just sandwich them between two pretzels, but for holidays we leave off the top pretzel and decorate the Rolo into something festive!
It’s so simple, quick and easy. Which I just love! You can make these gluten free, egg free, peanut free and tree nut free. We use Glutino brand for the pretzels, which are top 8 free. The Rolo’s contain milk and soy.
To decorate the reindeer, you just grab some Betty Crocker red decorating candies, Wilton decorating eyes, and then break some extra pretzels for the reindeer antlers. Then save the recipe for all through the year, and make them as described above, 2 pretzels with a Rolo sandwiched between!
Rolo Pretzel Reindeer
- Glutino or other allergy friendly pretzel twists
- “Red Hot” decorating candies
- Candy decorating “eyes”
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and preheat your oven to 350. Place as many pretzels as you’d like to make reindeer. Place an unwrapped Rolo on top of each pretzel twist. Place in oven for about 3-5 minutes, long enough for Rolo to be very soft and melty, but still have it’s form. Remove, and quickly decorate with red candy as nose, eyes, and broken pretzel pieces as antlers. Let sit about 30 minutes or briefly set in fridge to help set quicker.
Alternately, if you want to make these year round, just skip the nose and eyes, and when you remove from the oven place a full pretzel twist on top of each Rolo, and gently press down making a sandwich.
