Holiday Pretzel Treats

These are so addicting! A co-worker brings them in for parties, so I searched the recipe and made them for my cousin’s baby shower. They were a big hit, and so easy to make!

Bite-size, waffle-shaped pretzels
Hershey’s Kiss or Hershey’s Hug chocolates
M&M’s candy

1. Preheat the oven to 170degrees F.
2. Set a number of bite-size, waffle-shaped pretzels (one for each treat) in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, then top each pretzel with an unwrapped Hershey’s Kiss or Hershey’s Hug.
3. Bake for 4-6minutes (the white chocolate will melt more quickly), until the chocolates feel soft when touched with a wooden spoon.
4. Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and quickly press an M&M’s candy into the center of each Kiss.
5. Allow the treats to cool for a few minutes, then place them in the refrigerator to set, about 10minutes.

I made a large bag of kisses and a small bag of hugs, it took 4 full cookie sheets. I put them outside to cool (it was just above freezing out). I recommend not transferring them from the cookie sheet until they are cooled. Also, the lowest setting on my oven is 200degrees F, which worked just fine. I was still even on the longer end of the 4-6minutes for the kisses (hugs were definitely quicker!). Don’t be discouraged if they’re too melty when you place the M&M on, once cooled they came off the trays no problem and were just as tasty! (I used my Martha Stewart Silpat mats instead of parchment paper.)
