The simplest Christmas baking you can find...

I love baking with my little guy, but as we've already established, I am not the most patient person. So I'm always looking for simple, kid friendly recipes, and man did I hit the mother load when I stumbled on this one!

Start with 1 bag of circle pretzels, 1 bag rolos candy (1 bag makes what you see in the pic), and 1 bag m&m's.

Preheat your oven to 325 and line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Fill sheet with pretzels and place one rolo in center of each pretzel (see pic)

Then stick them in the oven for 4 minutes, and when you pull them out press an m&m into the top of each one. Then let them cool and enjoy the yummy deliciousness (is that a word?) No mess, no mixing, and once you throw away the wax paper....NO DISHES!!!!!!!!!! Amazing right?!?!

Seriously, buy more than one bag...I think half of this cookie sheet was gone before this post got published....


  1. Them look awesome, and pretty yummy too. I think my kids would like helping make these too. Thanks for the idea. I will have to try it out and let you know how it goes :)

  2. We used to make these (but with Hershey's Kisses) when I was little. You're right - it's a perfect baking project for kids and impatient adults! Try putting a pecan on top of the Rolos instead of the m and's kinda decadent.

  3. These look really yummy! I need to try this one out. Thanks for sharing it.

  4. That looks great, I think I would love to make that for family this Christmas and I do not even have little ones around!

    Thanks for this post

  5. Ooh...this looks interesting...and not too time consuming to make either! :) I'll have to try these!

  6. I've seen this snack on several blogs. Looks yummy.
