Looking for a sweet and salty appetizer that will leave your taste buds dancing? Look no further than these delicious caramel apple pretzel bites! With a perfect balance of sweet and salty flavors, these treats are sure to be a hit at any gathering.

Caramel Apple Pretzel Bites


  • Pretzels (square-shaped pretzels work best)
  • Green Apples
  • ROLO® Caramels
  • Optional: 1T Lemon Juice


1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

2. Line a cooking sheet with parchment paper and rows of pretzels.

3. Place a single ROLO® caramel on the center of each pretzel.

4. Bake the pretzels and caramels for four minutes.

5. While the pretzels are baking, slice an apple into little bite-sized chunks.

6. Optional: Splash the apples with lemon juice. This will prevent the apples from browning as quickly.

7. Pull the pretzels out of the oven and top each ROLO® with a chunk of apple before the caramel cools.

8. Let the candies sit for 30 minutes at room temperature or cool in the fridge to enjoy them sooner. 

Macaroni KID Tip: These treats taste best at room temperature when the caramel is softened, so be sure to set them out on the counter a few minutes before eating them.
