Pretzel Kisses

Pretzel Kisses
Found this recipe on Pinterest and had to try it!  This tasty little treat did not disappoint!!  I also thought why wait until Christmas to make these, so as I was watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade I created this pretty little batch you see here.  They turned out so cute looking that I bagged some of them up and gave them to our friends when we showed up for Thanksgiving dinner.  They are festive, tasty and super easy to make.
My friend gave me the heads up that for 1 bag of pretzels get 2 bags of Hershey Kisses and 1 bag of Christmas colors green and red M&M's.  I sent my husband to the store to get the bags of goodies.  I was actually wanting the round pretzels with a hole in the center but our store only had the square shaped pretzels and those worked great too.
Here are the super easy directions:
Bag of pretzels (whatever your store has square or round)
2 bags of Hershey Kisses
1 bag of holiday red and green M&M's
Cookie sheet
Preheat oven to 225 degrees.
Spread the pretzels on the cookie sheet to lie flat.  Put an unwrapped Hershey Kiss on top of each pretzel.  Put in the oven for 3 to 4 minutes and do not walk away.  You just need to give it enough time to slightly melt at 4 minutes tops depending on your oven.  Take the cookie sheet out of the oven and place on a cooling rack and gently push an M&M down in the center of each Hershey Kiss so that the chocolate touches all the edges of the pretzels.  Let cool on the cookie sheet.  I put ours in the refrigerator to speed up the process after it cooled a bit on the cookie sheet.  Then I ate some, got them kid approved and then bagged them up for our friends to enjoy.
Easy, great and cute to add to your cookie tray this holiday season!  Thank you Pinterest for once again not failing me!!
