Rolo Pretzel St. Patrick’s Day Treats

These Rolo Pretzel St. Patrick’s Day Treats are just for fun. They’re geared for kids and can be made BY kids too. They’re a little more tempting than corned beef and cabbage. Make them four-leaf clovers or shamrocks, your choice!

St. Patrick’s Day Treats My Family Can Enjoy

Also because we’re meat-free for Orthodox Lent, my family can eat them because we’re NOT having corned beef and cabbage. Don’t worry though, I buy a corned beef and save it to make for my husband because he misses it so much on St. Patrick’s Day.

Rolo Pretzel What?

These are everywhere these days. Basically it’s a salty pretzel with a Rolo caramel chocolate smooshed in it. Tada Rolo Pretzel treats!

Rolo Pretzel St. Patrick’s Day Treats

These are basically the same thing but made to look like edible shamrocks by pressing three pretzels around the Rolo. Do you need edible four-leaf clovers? Make them with four pretzels for some lucky treats!

These are fun and cute. And they can keep your hands busy as this long winter drags on. I mean it IS snowing right now. RIGHT NOW. And you’ve got to keep your hands busy!

Kids can help by unwrapping the Rolos and laying them on the baking sheet. They just go in an oven for a few minutes to gently warm the Rolo. Once the Rolos are shiny you take them out, put three pretzels around it, and they’re off to chill.

Once they’re chilled you gently melt white chocolate in a bowl over hot water, tint it green and dip the Rolo Pretzel treats. Add a green or yellow M-n-M and you’re done.

Make as Many Rolo Pretzel St. Patrick’s Day Treats as You Need

Rolo Pretzel St. Patrick's Day Treats

Make as many or as few as you need. Just adjust your ingredients. I wrote the recipe for sixteen but you can do as many as you like. Half a bag of white chocolate chips will make 16 if you need 32 you should be able to get at least that many out of a 10-ounce bag of chocolate chips.

  1. Those are ADORABLE! I’m bummed that I didn’t see these before I made the Rolo pretzels Delight! I having a St. Patrick’s Potluck Party tomorrow and my theme is shamrock heavy – this would’ve been so clever. Oh well, there’s always next year. Thanks for sharing – I love the idea❣️
