Eat Drink and Be Merry

Eat, Drink and be Merry – Christmas Treat and Cocktail

Getting a text from one of your friends at 9:30 pm to help taste test a martini recipe and help make some cookies for a cookie exchange she has the next day isn’t something you pass up.  Especially if you know my cute and very fun friend Michele, and knowing a blog opportunity was possible, I HAD to go “help” taste test.

She took these off Pinterest, and so neither of these are her or my recipes.  If she knew the links she got them from I would totally share them here.  And when I did a search, there are so many with no original source to be found.  So I can’t give credit where credit is due, but I will say both recipes are super easy and are VERY yummy!

We used rum, and again, it was so good!  (we also didn’t measure anything)

For the cookies, it’s 3 ingredients, and so simple that this is now going to be a staple cookie in our family Christmas cooking making day.

Christmas Rolo Pretzel Bites

Christmas Rolo Pretzel Treats

Ingredients

  • 1 bag Pretzels, the smaller the better
  • Rolo pieces - as many as you'd like to make
  • M&M's - as many as you'd like to make, and for this the holiday bag work best for red and green

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F
  2. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper
  3. Lay out pretzels on the pan
  4. Put a Rolo on top of each pretzel. They won't fit perfect but will melt inside the pretzel.
  5. Place Rolo/Pretzel combo in the oven for 5-10 minutes. The Rolo will not be completely melted, just enough where you can squish an M&M on top. Do this immediately for you want the Rolos to be soft.

The perfect mixture of salty, chocolately carmel crunch is addicting.  I warned you!Christmas Rolo Pretzel Treat

As a taste tester, my mouth was very satisfied.  Two very perfect holiday treats!

  1. They both look very yummy! I cannot wait to try that drink mix. Might invite one of my girlfriends over and make both of those treats! Sounds like a lot of fun.
