Chocolate Pretzel Treats {#7}

Chocolate Pretzel Treats 
Salty pretzels combine with sweet chocolate for these fun treats

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

1. Heat the oven to 350º. 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.

2. Bake for 2-4 minutes (the white chocolate will melt more quickly), until the chocolates looks shiny or feel soft when touched with a wooden spoon. Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and quickly press an M&M's candy into the center of each Kiss.

Use a straw to press the M&M into the Kiss. It keeps your fingers out of the chocolate and helps to give them all a neat and uniform look.

Allow the treats to cool. You could place them in the refrigerator to set for about 10 minutes. Place handfuls of the candies in clear plastic bags and tie on colorful ribbons.

These look so good and so pretty! My daughter has made them but I never have. After seeing your post, I think I will try to squeeze that in my busy holiday schedule. Thanks for sharing!
