St. Patrick's Day - Pretzel Bites

I'm sure you've seen variations on this theme posted on Pinterest lately but I couldn't find one that included just the right amount of chew-ey, salty, chocolate-ey, caramel-ey I made one up.  Most of the recipes that I found used Hershey's kisses or chocolate disks.  I used Rolo's - YUM!

Shopping List:

     Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a cookie sheet or baking tray with parchment paper or foil and cover with pretzels.  Top each pretzel with a Rolo and place in oven.  Heating time will vary according to your oven but this should only take a few minutes.  You are just softening the chocolate and caramel not melting it...that would make a mess and take away most of the fun!  Immediately after removing tray from the oven, place an m&m in the center of each Rolo and press gently.  You will need to work fairly quickly before the chocolate begins to cool.  Let cool completely.  This can take a few hours so if you're in a hurry you could pop them in the fridge.  I just covered mine and left them the office so I didn't keep snitching them.  When cool, place them in a cellophane bag or other container. 

Mouthwatering morsels of pure deliciousness.  YUM!

I folded down the top edge of my cellophane bag and attached a bag topper.
