Parchment Paper

Shamrock Pretzel Pop Steps - Shamrock Pretzel Pops - Pretzels, Rolo Candy & a Green M&M. SO pretty and festive for a St. Patrick's Day Party!
Step 1: Assemble all your supplies. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a
 cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Step 2: Arrange 3 mini pretzels into the shape of a shamrock, with the bottoms
 grouped together. Repeat this step until your cookie sheet is full of pretzel
Step 3: Place an unwrapped Rolo candy into the center of each pretzel
 shamrock so that the Rolo is touching all three pretzels.
Step 4: Carefully place cookie sheet in oven and bake for 3-5 minute
s or until the caramel gets soft. Remove from oven.
Step 5: Immediately after you remove from oven, do 2 things at once:
 1) Place an M&M on the top of the Rolo and 2) insert pop stick into the
 bottom of the Rolo. Press gently down on the Rolo candy,
 adjusting the pretzels so that they are still grouped close.
Step 6: Let pops cool completely. You can stick them in the 
freezer for a few minutes to speed this process up.
Step 7: Tie a pretty ribbon bow around the pop stick.
*For work or classroom parties: You can wrap the top with a
 clear plastic bag first before tying the ribbon around the stick for freshness.
