Frequently Asked Questions

What can I use instead of Rolo candies?

If you cannot find Rolo candies, any other soft caramels will work as a substitute. You can also try using Rolos’ chocolate-covered caramel cousins, such as mini Milky Ways or Snickers bars.  

Can I use regular-sized pretzels instead of snaps?

Yes, you can use regular-sized pretzels instead of snaps. However, the cooking time may need to be adjusted as regular-sized pretzels may take longer to bake than snaps.

Do I have to use parchment paper?

Parchment paper is recommended for easy cleanup and to prevent the candies from sticking to the baking sheet. However, you can also use a silicone baking mat or grease the baking sheet with cooking spray as an alternative.
