I first saw these treats when my mom made them for Christmas. She was able to use the kind of pretzels that have little criss-crosses all across and look like window screens. You know the ones I mean?
You'll also need a bag of Hershey's kisses and plain or peanut M&Ms.
Preheat your oven to 250*.
Lay the pretzels out on a cookie tray. You may want to line it with tin foil (especially if you're using the twists) in case some chocolate slips though.
Set a chocolate kiss on each pretzel.
Bake the pretzels+kisses for only 2-3 minutes at 250*.
When they come out, the kisses will be melty enough that you can press an M&M on top of the kiss's point!
If you have room in your freezer or fridge, stick the tray in there while they cool. If not, you can leave them out at room temperature and the chocolate will eventually harden again.
That's it! Super easy, right? And so cute! Especially for holidays or themes with colors--the red and green ones we did for Christmas looked great! I also might try different variations (peanuts instead of M&ms or different kinds of kisses) in the future.
According to my MyFitnessPal calculations, each treat is about 33 calories, so they aren't a diet killer as long as you don't overindulge.
Happy nomming! :)
