Christmas-colored M&Ms

Hershey’s Kisses

Pretzels (I used Snyder’s of Hanover Snaps Pretzels)

  1. Preheat oven to 275°.
  2. Place the pretzels on a greased or parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  3. Place a Hershey’s Kiss in the center of each pretzel.
  4. Bake for 3-4 minutes until the chocolate is softened.
  5. Remove from the oven and, working quickly, press an M&M down softly on each softened Hershey’s Kiss.
  6. Refrigerate for 10 minutes until the chocolate is firm. Store at room temperature.

The beauty of this recipe is that you can customize it with your favorite flavors. This time I used the mint-flavored M&Ms with regular Hershey’s kisses. I have also done the combo of regular milk chocolate M&Ms with caramel Hershey’s kisses. YUM! And you can recreate these treats for any holiday – just change the colors! Enjoy!
