Hershey’s Kisses rock.
M&Ms are fabulous.
Put all three together and you have a trifecta of crunchy, salty, chocolate-y goodness.
Check out my video on how to make Chocolate Kiss Pretzels. Great for holiday pretzel treats or for those gifts you need for teachers or your mailman.
If you don’t want to watch the How To Video, then follow these simple steps:
Take a bag of Hershey’s Kisses. Any kind really, but let’s go with the basic chocolate kind. Unwrap them all. (This is the only time consuming part and the kids can help.)
Then place a round pretzel on a cookie sheet. Put one Hershey’s Kiss on top. Place the cookie sheet in the oven at 200˚ just until the hershey kisses get slightly soft. Don’t let them get melty. Then you will have a real mess.
Once you have the chocolate softer, then take out of the oven and place one M&M on the top. You can use the regular M&Ms or the holiday versions. Red and green for Christmas or the pastels for the spring. Or get a variety of specific colors for graduation in the school colors, or a baby shower/bridal shower theme.
After placing one M&M on the top, place the cookie sheet in the fridge or freezer to firm up the chocolate again. Maybe 10 minutes or so. Once firm, then eat! Or place in containers to give as gifts, etc.
So easy, so yummy. A fun alternative is to take the square pretzels, and place a caramel Hershey’s kiss on top. Melt using the same methods above. Then, instead of placing an M&M on top, place another square pretzel on top to make a mini pretzel/caramel sandwich! To die for!
