Pretzel Kiss Candies *12 Days of Christmas Snacktivities-Day 5*

My husband just challenged me to a race… who can finish their job quicker- my job is writing this post. His is doing the dishes. GO!

For day 5 of my 12 Days of Christmas Snacktivities, I am going to show you how to make something you have probably seen kicking around on Pinterest! Nice and easy, deliciously satisfying Pretzel Kiss Candies.

So grab your favorite child, and get ready.

IMG_7225 Such a cute lil helper ❤

IMG_7226ALLL you need to make these are some small pretzels (I have tried to find the circle or waffle-squareish ones for years and I just don’t think they make em in Canada- but if you can find those- use them- they look better.), some assorted Hershey’s Kisses (I used original and peppermint), and finally, some Christmassy-colored M&M’s! That’s it! Let’s go!

IMG_7227Step 1: Line a lightly greased cookie sheet or two with pretzels and unwrap your kisses (Keep the wrappers- I’ll show ya why in a second.)

IMG_7229Step 2: Place the kisses on top of the pretzels like so.

IMG_7232Step 3: Cook in a 250 degree oven until the kisses are JUST melty…max 4 minutes- Apparently the white chocolate ones melt faster… maybe put them on a separate sheet next time, Dot!

IMG_7233Step 4: As soon as they are out of the oven, squish an M&M into the kiss, and voila!

Step 5: Cute, huh? (Yes, saying ‘Cute, huh?” is part of the step.) Just stick em in the fridge for a few minutes to harden up again, and serve!

IMG_7249So lovely and delish. Such a good kid-helping snacktivity, as usual.

Now- back to the kiss wrappers!!! I was about to toss them, when I had an idea!

IMG_7228They are just so… SHINY. Too shiny to throw away! It is the season of shiny things, is it not?!?!

IMG_7235So we crumpled up all the wrappers…

IMG_7236Dropped em into a glass ornament…

IMG_7242And sealed it with a bow!

IMG_7709Well, that turned out pretty awesome for… garbage!

AND my daughter also came up with something to do with the little Hershey’s tags:

    You are the best! I am going to make these. And ruin my diet further. THANKS DOT

  3. Really LOVE this idea! Apart from the fact that we don’t have Hershey’s over here!!! (which is actually a good thing as Hersheys suck!) So I need to come up with a transferrable choco treat idea, But as we are the land of Cadburys, shouldn’t be a problem!! Yummmm though. thanks Dot, really enjoying these ideas! x

    • youd be better off with cadbury anyways! even in canada they have a pile of fair-trade stuff which is cool! do you have rolos???? those are amazingggggg with a pecan half on top!!! ❤
