Pretzel Treats

This is a great project for kids.  They can help unwrap the Hershey Kisses and sort the colors of the M&M’s.  I used the yellow and orange ones for the fall season but the colors and flavors of both Hershey Kisses and M&M’s are endless and this treat is versatile for many holidays.  Here is another great thing about this treat – gluten free pretzels can be used.

  1. Small Pretzels (To make Gluten Free - use a gluten-free pretzel) If you can find them in a circle - great but any small pretzel shape will work.
  2. M&M's
  3. Hershey Kisses, unwrapped
  1. Unwrap Hershey Kisses
  2. Sort M&M’s by color, optional
  3. Line a Cookie Sheet with a piece of parchment paper
  4. Place the pretzels on the cookie sheet. They can touch each other.
  5. Heat oven to 225 degrees
  6. Place a Hershey Kiss in the middle of each pretzel.
  7. When all pretzels have a Kiss in them, place cookie sheet into oven for 3-4 minutes, just until chocolate is pliable. Every oven is different but this is not the time to multitask – stay close to the oven.
  8. Remove cookie sheet from oven.
  9. Let cool for a few minutes and then while chocolate is still warm, place M&M in the center of the chocolate.
  10. Let cool on the counter or if you need a little quicker set pan in refrigerator or freezer.

  1. How cool! I’m making my grocery list right now so I’m going to add this stuff so I can make them to take to our family next weekend!

    • Lisa – when I was getting this post ready – I thought “Hmmm? I wonder if Lisa’s kids will be unwrapping some kisses soon. Have fun!!!

  2. These are such a fun idea, Debbie. Have you ever heard of UnReal candy? They make an M & M type candy without artificial colors. The colors are a little different but they taste great. My daughter likes the purple. I think the colors might be fun to use for a Halloween party. Thanks so much for sharing this with our Let’s Get Real readers. I always look forward to seeing what you bring to the party.

    • Hi Christina,
      I haven’t heard of those candies but will definitely look into them. Thanks for sharing.
