Holiday M&M Pretzels

I love this 'recipe' because it's not only quick, easy and fun, but it's brightly colored, looks great on your holiday cookie platter and they taste so good! With only three ingredients you can either whip these up yourself or have your kids or grand kids join you in the kitchen.

This time of year it's easy to find round pretzels in most grocery stores. This week I did my grocery shopping at a Super Walmart which had them in two different area's, so if you can't find them in your local grocery store, check Walmart.

Holiday M&M Pretzels

1 bag round pretzels
1 bag Hershey's chocolate kisses (unwrap them)
1 bag M&M's

Place the pretzel rounds on a foil or parchment covered cookie sheet for easy lifting later. Place one unwrapped Kiss in the center of each. Bake at 275 degree's in the oven for about 5 minutes until the chocolate looks 'wet' and shiny. This means it's 'squishable' and melty. (Love my use of the English language!?) Remove from the oven and press one M&M into the center of each chocolate, pressing down just a bit. Let cool completely for the chocolate to harden again.

Delicious, fun and frugal!

Use squares or rounds or even regular pretzels:  over the years, we've used them all!
