Rolos, Pretzels, Reeses: The Ultimate Stoner Cookies

Tis the reason for the season.
Just like it sounds, the ultimate stoner cookies. They're so easy, it should be illegal. And yes, even a stoner can do it. There's really not any cooking involved. More like assembling and melting and a little more assembling. So get ready and turn your oven onto 350 degrees. When it's preheated, you're ready to go.
Step 1: Assemble your pretzels on a baking sheet. I like to use the little round ones that have the criss cross pattern throughout. They provide the best stable base for the cookie when you get to step two.
Step 2: Place a single rolo on top of each pretzel. 
Step 3: Place the baking sheet into the oven for five minutes, just enough so that the Rolos get a little melty and soft.
Step 4: Take the baking sheet out of the oven, and lightly press a single Reeses piece onto each rolo, just enough to squish it a little bit. You are done.
These cookies are salty, crunchy, sweet, kissed with the strangely addictive Reeses peanut butter somethin' somethin'. In other words, they're perfect. Every single time I pass by them in the kitchen, I must pop one. And then another on the way back. Before you know it, you're out of cookies, Santa is pissed at you, and you're off to the store in a frenzy to buy more Rolos. But now the entire world has caught onto the craze, and there's a rolo shortage, so you find yourself driving to another store down the way only to discover the same scenario. Now you're out of gas, and haven't paid AAA in months because all you can think about are these damn cookies. And so on, and so forth. 
So before this plays out, make these cookies. They're a huge hit.
