My girls and I make these M&M Pretzel Kisses every year at Christmas time. Super simple and a sweet treat everyone will love!
I know this recipe has been done a million times in seventy-five different ways and it’s really not from scratch, like AT ALL. But I don’t care. I’m posting it anyways. It’s total crack for us salty-sweet people. In case you forgot about these, I’m here to remind you.
These. Are. Awesome.
I prefer mine with the milk chocolate kisses. Don’t give me those Hershey Hugs, because I won’t have any of it… Oh and I’ll pass on the reg-o M&M’s… it’s peanut butter all the way baby.
Every Christmas Eve, ever since I discovered this little treat that is, I’ve made sure they make their way onto Santa’s cookie plate. I’m pretty positive that Mr. Claus appreciates the variety. I’d imagine the endless frosted sugar cookies and snicker doodles has to get old after the billionth home right? Anywho… do Santa a solid and make him these this year. Who knows he may just leave you that Kitchen Aid food processor you’ve been droolin over?! *fingers crossed*
To Make These Peanut Butter M&M Pretzel Kisses You Will Need:
m & m candies (use your favorite)
I feel like I should be apologizing for the scratch-less posts lately. But it’s been busy around here… but school is out, so I can finally breathe and put my kids to work while I sit back, shoot the pics and munch on some PB M&M’s.
It didn’t take much persuading to get their help making these. They are after all perfect for the job, and those little hands are just the right size for unwrapping 70 Hershey Kisses no? They’re also perfect for lining up 70 pretzels. 🙂
Like I’m totally sure you know how to make these, and you certainly don’t need me to show you how with a step-by-step. But if I didn’t you wouldn’t get to look at these cute little fingers… fingers that obviously need to stop trying to paint their nails with pink marker!!!!
Now they’re ready to be sent off into the 350 degree oven for 3 minutes. Not one or two… but THREE whole minutes.
They’ll come out all sweaty and glisten-y like.
Now remove that bowl of PB M&M’s (that you were snacking on while watching your cute-as-ever kids were assembling the treats) from your kung-fu grip.
Firmly press one M&M into one soft and sweaty Hershey Kiss.
Look! It’s like a rainbow of salty-sweet crack! Not that I know what crack is… I mean obviously I know what crack is… but, Ohhh never mind!! Once seventy peanut butter M&M’s are smashed into seventy warm Hershey Kisses that are resting on seventy pretzels, you can place the sheet pan into the fridge until the chocolate hardens and sets. Just wait until the pan has cooled a bit before doing so k?
