Pretzel Bites - A Sweet Treat

I was invited to a cookie exchange with a group of ladies.  I decided to make this recipe I came across last year on Pinterest.  They are super easy to make, and are so tiny that you can eat a few without feeling guilty.

Pretzel Bites

What you need: 
1 Bag of Mini Pretzel Twists
Hershey Kisses or Hugs (unwrapped)
Holiday M&M's or Holiday Smarties

Spread the pretzels onto the baking sheet (as many that will fit without being tilted)

Top each pretzel with a kiss or hug

Place baking sheet into a 250 degree oven; bake for 2-3 minutes (the kiss should JUST be starting to melt)

Remove sheet and immediately press a smartie or m&m into the melting kiss

Allow to cool for a few hours until the chocolate is set


  1. This is brilliant! So simple, so perfect. I'm SO doing these!!!!

  2. I made these (using melting chocolate in different colors) last year and it was such a hit at get togethers.. So easy to make too :) I used crushed candycane as a topping - was a nice mint chocolate mix

    1. ooh - sounds good....may also be good with a junior mint

  3. I love this recipe idea. My daughter would love to do this with me. She's so creative I'm sure she'd think up so many interesting topping ideas!

  4. I made this last year and they were a big hit. I used the square pretzel and the Hershey Kisses and are white/red. (Judy Cowan)

  5. Great idea - something I might even be able to do without burning them!
