They are ideal as a gift as well. They are hardy enough to fill a jar and perfect in a holiday tin.
I have no idea who to credit for this recipe, because I have seen these delightful little pretzels a few places. But regardless, the recipe is worth a share.
Bite Sized Chocolate Pretzels
1 bag Hershey's Kisses
1 bag bite sized pretzels (any variety)
1 bag M&M's (peanut butter flavor are an excellent twist)
Heat oven to 250.
Unwrap kisses. This is by far and away the most tedious part of the whole chocolate pretzel making process. A phenomenal job for little munchkins.
Place pretzels on baking sheet. Top each pretzel with a Hershey's Kiss.
Place in oven for approximately 3-5 minutes. You need to make certain the Kisses are soft enough to top with M&M.
Carefully top each Hershey's Kiss with M&M. Or two if you desire. I like to place the "M" face down so it is not visible. I'm all about appearances.
Let chocolate set before attempting any packaging. I place mine in fridge to quicken the process.
I would suggest making these this weekend. They are sure to please the football viewing crowd. They are sure to please any crowd.
Mommyhood Footnote: Don't forget to make these when the holidays roll around. Make a few hundred and buy decorative tins or jars. They are an ideal hostess or teacher gift.
