Say "Hello" to one of the easiest treats ever. And delicious to boot!
I was introduced to these by my neighbor Jenny, who invited us over for our kids to make these together a few days before Christmas. The kids LOVED making them and eating them....so when my sister was visiting, she asked if we could make a batch ourselves. So we did. The hardest part about it is unwrapping all those hugs and kisses. I take that back....the hardest part is keeping the kids from eating all of the hugs and kisses before they even make it onto the pretzels.
Definitely fun and festive and a wonderful way to put those little hands in your house to work in the kitchen.
Bag of small pretzels - I like Snyder's Snaps (Note: not all will be used)
Bag of Hershey's Hugs or Kisses, unwrapped
Bag of M&Ms (not all will be used)
Preheat oven to 275°.
On an ungreased baking sheet, lay pretzels out. They can be very close together.
Top each pretzel with an unwrapped chocolate kiss/hug.
Put in oven for 3-4 minutes, or until chocolate is softened but not completely melted.
Place an M&M on top of each chocolate piece, pressing lightly.
Refrigerate until firm if desired, or just let them sit at room temperature (which will take longer).
They don't need to be refrigerated.
