It’s that time of year! But the truth is, these are a HIT year round! Time to start making goodies galore, passing out gifts, meeting with friends and enjoying the season of Joy! Who doesn’t love it all? I always want it to last even longer! Lights, hot drinks, games, laughs, love and time well spent with loved ones. What’s not to love?
For my family’s Annual Christmas Cookie Exchange, I decided to go with something super quick, yummy and easy on the wallet. I am a huge fan of sweet and salty together, it is a magical combination! I knew I could not go wrong with these. Next time though, for Christmas, I must only use Red and Green M&M’s!
Here is what you need, pretzels, Hershey Kisses, and M&M’s, note I do prefer the square pretzels (they look cuter) from Snyders but they were all sold out:
Preheat your over to 350. I covered my cookie sheet in parchment paper so I could just slide it off when I need to reload the pan. Worked great! Layout the pretzels, then place 1 unwrapped Hershey’s Kiss on each one.
Pop in the oven for 1 to 2 mins, they should look glossy when soft and ready. Once hot, start putting the M&M’s on top of the Kisses, they should push right down, nice and easy. Slide off of pan to cool. I put in the freezer for 10 mins also.
These are so easy & delicious. I like this kind of treat. Especially in this season of younger kids, a busy schedule, and lots of gifts to give, these are perfect for any occasion, gift or snack!
They went fast at the cookie exchange, next year I am going to make 2x the amount. Everyone loves these. I also made a batch for all the neighbors and my children’s teachers. 🙂
