holiday pretzel kisses {last mintute christmas treats}

These little treats are simple to make a huge hit at Christmas! I made up a batch for neighbor gifts this weekend.

Holiday Pretzel Kiss Candies Recipe

*Small, waffle-shaped pretzels
*Hershey's Kisses (plain old chocolate are good, but my favorite are the Candy Cane Kisses--any variety of Kisses or Hugs will work)
*Red & green M&M's
*Cookie sheet and parchment paper

1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or wax paper). Spread out pretzels.

2. Put a Hershey's Kiss or Hug in the center of each pretzel.

3. Heat oven to 170°. Place baking sheet in oven for 6 minutes. Kisses will just begin to melt and look shiny, but will not lose their shape.

4. Gently top each Kiss with an M&M, with the "m" side down. It should immediately push the Kiss' point down, but if you have to press it into the Kiss, you may need to heat them a little longer.

Place in the freezer until the Kiss is hard again (i put my whole cookie sheet in my big freezer, but you could wait for them to cool and put them on a smaller plate if you don't have that much room in your freezer). Package them in a cello bag, add a bow and a tag, and you're good to go!
