Another Easy Treat

This is pretty similar to what Allison recently posted, but my kids and I make these each Christmas. They are super easy and the kids (ages 4 & 2) can practically do it themselves!


*Bite-size, waffle-shaped pretzels (such as Snyder’s Snaps)
*Hershey’s Kiss or Hershey’s Hug
*M&M’s candy

1. Heat the oven to 170ยบ. Set a number of bite-size, waffle-shaped pretzels (one for each treat) in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, then top each pretzel with an unwrapped Hershey's Kiss or Hershey's Hug.

2. Bake for 4 to 6 minutes (the white chocolate will melt more quickly), until the chocolates feel soft when touched with a wooden spoon (or your finger!). Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and quickly press an M&M's candy into the center of each Kiss.

3. Allow the treats to cool for a few minutes, then place them in the refrigerator to set, about 10 minutes.

We've used several different flavors of kisses and M&Ms. The candy cane kisses are yummy! Make a big batch so you'll have plenty to snack on and still give some to your neighbors! Merry Christmas!
