We hosted the Ph.D. Christmas party tonight and asked everyone to bring either an appetizer or dessert. As I suspected, we ended up with way more desserts than appetizers, and then with much food left over. My co-workers will be happy since they’ll reap the benefits tomorrow.
One of the desserts I made is this snack I initially saw on Culinary in the Desert. The foodie, Joe, includes these in his annual Christmas baskets. They are so easy and after my busy week I just knew this had to be on my list of food to make for the party.
Coincidentally, someone brought a similar snack in to work today. They were identical except instead of the Kissables, she topped hers with pecans. They are delicious either way.
Pretzel Rolo Bites
- square pretzels
- Rolo candy
- Hershey’s Kissables or sliced pecans
Spread out square pretzels (or any flat-shaped pretzels) onto a cookie sheet. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Place a Rolo on each pretzel then heat in the oven for 3 minutes. Take the pretzels/rolos out of the oven and gently press a Kissable (mini Hershey kisses) or a pecan on top of each Rolo. Let cool and store in airtight container.
