Pretzel Rolo Blondie Bites

Have you ever heard candy talk?

Like, with words talk to you?

Well, it happens.  It’s a real thing.

Seriously, as I type this I can hear the leftover Halloween candy in my pantry talking to me.


If you listen closely you’ll hear things like, “Please, come free me, I’m suffocating in this wrapper”.  And really, who am I to let something suffocate?

I’m a healer.  A helper.  A candy pleaser.

You too?

See, that’s why we’re friends.  We all can hear the candy.  It’s a special gift.

I’m a candy whisperer.  Again, it’s a real thing.


So, in the vein of facilitating the candy’s life’s purpose I want to make sure it all gets eaten.  The present dilemma being the correct vehicle for the consumption of the candy.

Some candy, certainly, is best in it’s raw form.  However, some are even better when surrounded by a buttery, brown sugary cookie bite and topped with a pretzel.

We’re talking Rolos today…and it told me that’s what it wanted.

I make dreams happen.

Good talk.



First make your simple blondie batter.  Spray a mini muffin pan with non-stick spray and fill each cup with a rounded tablespoon of batter.

Press an unwrapped Rolo into each batter filled cup.

Don’t worry about covering the Rolo with batter…

Now bake them up.

As soon as they come out of the oven press a waffle-style pretzel on top of the Rolo.  Press just enough to stick to the chocolate of the Rolo.

See?  Easy!

Remove them from the pan and let them cool on a wire rack until you’re ready to eat them….which if you’re listening to your candy, like I am, then that means immediately!

Now, while we’re talking sweet and salty, pretzely and chocolatey hop over to Confessions of a Cookbook Queen and check out THESE Take 5 Brownie Bars!!

Phew, I thought I was the only one who heard candy speak. Right now I can hear it, calling me from the other room. Reeses, whoppers, twix. THEY ARE TALKING TO ME. Or I’m just going crazy, which may in fact be the case. Putting them IN a cookie WITH pretzels. My sweet and salty tooth are in major ‘like’ with these blondie bites!

What a beautiful combination – drippy caramel, pretzels and of course chocolate – why must I keep bookmarking your recipes! Too little time 🙂
But what a great addition this would make to my chocolate baking collection
Thank you 🙂

You’re like the fairy godmother we all need 🙂

Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga

I want the job of squishing the pretzels into the baked cupcakes when they are done. Something so satisfying about that I bet 🙂 And eating them! Want that job too!


So that’s what that sound coming from the pantry was… 🙂 Looks like I need to bake some of these up asap!


When candy talks, people should listen:) These brownie bites look so good! Simple too~the best!


I love rolos!! These look insane.
I heard the 30% off Halloween candy at Target talk to me yesterday, but my husband was with me and he doesn’t talk candy, so needless to say I’m going back tonight without him 🙂


you always have like the most delicious and imaginative recipes ever!


You are so insanely creative! Do you come up with this stuff on your own, or does the candy help you out?


Sweet and salty makes me very happy… I must make these!!!

Ashley @ Kitchen Meets Girl

Oh my. These look terrific. Now I’m wondering why I didn’t buy Rolos for Halloween! Must get some asap!!!

Grizz Robinson

Suggestion, based on the combination of caramel, chocolate, and Pretzel, have you considered simply using a big chunk of “Take Five” candy?


this is such a lovely idea! brilliant! i am curious about the sweet and salty part. yum!

Lauren at Keep It Sweet
