You know how there’s that one recipe that is made on repeat, every year when the holidays roll around?
Christmas Pretzels is one of those recipes!
Last night we had a friend visit our home for the first time, and with it being the Christmas season, I wanted to send her home with a Christmas plate laden with home-baked treats.
Ideally, this would mean a plate filled with my easy Sugar Cookies, Coconut Snowballs, or even several 3 ingredient Christmas Oreo Cookie Balls and 3 ingredient shortbread cookies.
But when she called fifteen minutes before setting foot into our home, I knew I needed to find something quick and easy to make.
Cue the choral music in the background.
3 ingredient Pretzel Christmas Treats!
Some people even call these Pretzel Christmas Cookies.
What you need to make Christmas Pretzel Treats
All you need are:
- Pretzels (Mini Twists or Squares)
- Rolos or Hershey’s kisses, and
- Christmas color M&Ms (Red and Green M&Ms).
How to make these easy Christmas Pretzel Treats
Start by lining a baking tray with parchment paper.
When done, preheat the oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit.
While this happens, arrange the pretzels on the parchment paper.
Place a Rolo (or Hershey’s Kiss) in the center of the pretzel.
Once you have a Rolo on each pretzel, place the tray in the oven for 3-5 minutes, nothing more.
Ensure you have your M&Ms ready to use as soon as you pull your tray from the oven.
Now carefully place an M&M on each softened Rolo top and press it to slightly “smush” the Rolo.
Set the tray aside to cool.
This sweet treat is this easy to make, and everyone loves it!
Easy 3 ingredient Christmas Treats recipe
- 20 pretzel twists, squares. Try and find pretty, if possible, Christmas themed, pretzels
- 20 Caramel Rolos OR Hershey's Kisses (I love doing the Almond ones or even the Candy Cane ones)
- 20 Christmas M&Ms Red and Green colored M&Ms
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit
Arrange the pretzels on a baking tray lined with parchment paper
Place a Rolo/Hershey's Kiss in the center, on top of each pretzel
Once done, pop the tray in the oven for 3-5 minutes (As soon as you see the Rolos/Kisses beginning to melt, pull the tray out of the oven)
Remove and quickly but gently place a red/green M&M on each softened Rolo/Hershey's Kiss
Set aside to cool
And voila, your Christmas Pretzel Treats are ready!

What’s the easiest Christmas sweet You make?
I’d love to hear from you. Hop over to chat with me on Facebook and/or Twitter
Those little treats are so easy to make, I am going to have to try this! I usually just bake a ton of cookies during the holidays, I need to switch it up a little!
Oh I love these! I hope my sister is making them again for Christmas.
My kids would love these. What a cute treat!
Love the salty-sweet combo. These are tasty and festive!!
These turned out really cute! Don’t feel bad about doing something quick, I bet she loved them!
Those look so good. And also super easy. That will be a perfect Christmas treat to take to my familys get together. Thanks for the info.
These are a favorite! We just have a problem sharing them. 😉 It’s almost as if they are made and really don’t last 24 hours in our house.
This is such a great treat to make when you’re running low on time because it’s so simple!
I love that these are so quick to whip up! I need to make more cookies. I keep making treats and then eating them (with help, of course) instead of giving them away!
Oh my…These are calling me. I hear my name….They look absolutely delicious! 🙂 Will have to try!
I can’t believe this is only 3 ingredients! They look so yummy.
We make these and they are super tasty! My favorite is chocolate peppermint bark because it only has two ingredients! 🙂
LOL – My son just looked at my screen and said that we have to make these NOW! 🙂
I just might make these this week to take to my mom’s house. They look so good, and I’m going with Rolos!
Yum, I make these with pecans, i cant wait to try them with M&M’s
These are always a big hit in my house. I could devour a plate in a day without even meaning it.
I made some of these the other day, half with M&Ms, and half with walnut pieces on top since my husband loves nuts. My quickest Christmas treat is probably my Rocky Road Squares – like 5 minutes to make, then they just have to cool.
AWESOME!! You had me at 3 ingredients!!! YUM!
i keep seeing this! why haven’t i made it yet?!?!
Looks yummy! Thank you for the recipe
I have made these and they are always a big hit. They can also be changed up for different holidays by changing the colors on the M & M’s.
My granddaughter loves these,
Who doesn’t have a shortage of time right around now? The quickest treat I make are slice and bake cookies. But these pretzels treats are just as easy, homemade, and probably much better. Great idea, and thanks for sharing.
