  • 1 pound (1 bag) of mini round pretzels
  • 14 ounces (1 bag) of Hershey's Kisses or Hugs
  • 17 3/5 ounces (1 bag) of M&M candies
Container: cookie sheet
5 mins
5 mins
10 mins
  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment or waxed paper.
  • Place as many pretzels on the cookie sheet as will fit.
  • Top each with a Hershey's Kiss or Hug. The Hugs chocolates melt faster than Kisses.
  • Place in oven and remove when candy begins to soften just enough to press an M&M candy or decoration into softened candy.
  • Top each with a holiday M&M or decorative candy of choice.
  • Allow to cool completely and then place in freezer for 15 minutes to firm up chocolate.
  • Remove from freezer, place pretzel candies in airtight container and store in freezer until ready to use.
*Any small shaped pretzel can be used, such as square, waffle-shaped or round.

*Serve for any holiday or event by changing the color of the M&M candies to colors consistent with the celebration.

"When I make these, the kisses become cloudy after they harden? Any ideas on how to prevent this?"

"I make these every year for Christmas. The kids love them. I can usually find the round pretzels around Christmas time but have used the mini twist pretzels too. I make half using kisses and half using Rolo candy."

"Rold Gold makes a small round, buttery waffle pretzel perfect for these. I'm trying candy cane (red & white) kisses too this year! Simple, quick and easy and yummy!"
