M&M Prezels taste just like Take 5 Candy Bars... Easy and Delicious

Every year for the past 15 years my kids and I have made different versions of M&M Pretzels. Originally started with just a Hershey's Kiss and a plain red or green M&M we later tried different versions and had some fun with different combinations. It's so easy and quick to make them it's wonderful for children to help Mom in the kitchen.

If you can, look for the round pretzels. Typically only available around the holidays they are worth looking for if you can find them. If you can't, use regular pretzels and make due.

Place a pretzel ring on a baking sheet. Top with a Hershey's Kiss. Place in a warm oven (325 degrees) for about 5 minutes until the chocolate is glossy and soft. Place an M&M into the center and press lightly.

What is wonderful to use is the new Hershey's Caramel Kisses and a Peanut M&M. The mixture tastes exactly like a Take 5 candybar. Let them cool completely or put them in the refrigerator to hurry the process.

Another fun idea is to take a pretzel and top with a Rollo candy or a caramel Kiss. Instead of an M&M top with a pecan. It makes an instant turtle candy!
