Sweet and Salty: Bite Sized Chocolate Pretzels

These little pretzels are bite sized perfection.  They are sweet yet salty, easy to make and stay fresh for days.

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.


  1. Using Rolos instead of Hershey Kisses is also a nice treat.

  2. These are so fun to make with kids! I use the square waffle pretzels instead and trying different varieties of kisses...peanut good as well! Also using holiday m&ms is fun! I saw a recipe this morning making them with the striped kisses and adding a piece of candy corn instead of a m&m for a cute Halloween treat!!! ~Amanda
