Shamrock Pretzel Pops Recipe

Shamrock Pretzel Pops for St. Patrick's Day
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 36 pretzel twists
  • 12 green M&M's
  • 12 Rolos, unwrapped
Other Items Needed:
  • baking sheet
  • lollipop sticks
  • parchment paper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Assemble pretzels into a shamrock shape as shown in the photos.
  2. Carefully place a Rolo candy in the center of each of the shamrocks. Very gently place the baking sheet into oven. Bake for about 3 minutes, or until the Rolo candy has begun to melt.
  3. Carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven and gently insert a lollipop stick in through the bottom of the Rolo candy. Place a green M&M candy on top of the Rolo and gently press down. Repeat until finished.
  4. Allow them to cool before removing from the baking sheet. Carefully peel them off of the parchment paper and serve.
Notes
It’s important to add the lollipop stick and green M&M while the Rolos candy are still warm, as they will harden quickly once they cool down.

So easy, right? I love how quick and easy it is to make these sweet & salty treats for St. Patrick’s Day!

How to Make Shamrock Pretzel Pops

To create the shamrock look, arrange 3 pretzel twists on a parchment-lined baking sheet with the bottoms of the pretzel twists facing towards the center like the photo below. Place a Rolo candy on top in the middle of where the 3 pretzels come together.

Remove from oven and push a lollipop stick through the melted Rolo candy and top with a green M&M. Carefully press the M&M down into the Rolo candy making sure to not touch the chocolate with your fingers since it will be hot.
