15-Minute Crunchy Pretzel Squares Recipe With Caramel & Chocolate Is Salty & Sweet

If you love the flavor combination of sweet, salty and nutty, then this caramel pretzel squares recipe is for you. Crunchy pretzel squares topped with Rolo candies make this a no-brainer. Top with whole pecans, walnuts or almonds. Sometimes I'll add dried fruit. Just make sure whatever you use, to press firmly, then drizzle each with a bit of melted chocolate for a beautiful garnish. These make great food gifts!

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: Makes 2 dozen 


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F degrees. Line a baking sheet with a nonstick baking liner or parchment paper. Place the pretzel squares on the baking sheet and top each with a Rolo. Bake for about 2 minutes.
  2. Remove from oven and gently press a pecan half on top of each one, pressing into the Rolo candy slightly. Place the whole pan in the refrigerator for a quick cool down for about 5 minutes.
  3. Optional: While the candies are chilling, melt chocolate chips or caramel candies in a small bowl. Using the prongs of a fork, dunk into the warm, chocolate or caramel and drizzle over top of the pecans for a finished look. Allow to set before packaging. Keep airtight at room temperature.
