These pretzels are one of my favorite holiday treats – and they are so easy to make. They taste just like chocolate covered pretzels, but are much less work! Plus, by using red and green M&M’s they can be festive as well as cute for the holidays. Of course, you can use different color M&M’s for a different look, as well as other types of Hershey kisses for a different flavor. These really cannot be easier to make, and are a great recipe to make with kids.
M&M Pretzel Treats
Hershey kisses or hugs
Preheat the oven to 170 degrees. Unwrap the kisses and place aside.
On a baking sheet, spread out the pretzel squares. Place an unwrapped Hershey kiss on each pretzel. Place in the warm oven for 4-6 minutes, until the kiss is softened, yet still holds its shape. (White chocolate will melt more quickly than milk chocolate).
Remove from the oven, and place an M&M on top of the kiss. (If you are anal-rententive like myself, make sure the M is down 😉 ).
Let cool for 10 minutes, than transfer to the refrigerator or freezer until the chocolate is set.
