I saw this yummy little snack on Pinterest, and decided it had to be made! I loooove sweet and salty snacks. In fact, I can no longer eat plain Ruffles potato chips without a side of something chocolate (usually mini Kit-Kats, or Hershey's Kisses). If Ruffles made chocolate covered potato chips, I'd be in heaven...or trouble.
Anyway!! This is a simple snack that is great for the kiddos. If you've got school age kids, you can just toss some of these in a little baggie and throw them in your kids lunch. If you don't have school age children, that's ok. You can just keep them in the fridge and give your toddler a couple as a treat, then eat half the platter yourself while he's napping. (Which MAY have been what happened in my house) ;)~ You can also make these for holidays just by changing the colors of the M&M's...red and green for Christmas...yellow, orange and brown for Thanksgiving...pastel M&M's for Easter...you get the idea. Ok guys...I'm off to load the dishwasher and fold laundry (don't be jealous)...till next time!
'Sweet & Salty Pretzels'
1 bag of mini pretzels
1 bag of Hershey's Kisses (you can use any kind you like)
1 bag of M&M's
1. Heat oven to 275
2. Line up pretzels on a large baking sheet. Place one Hershey's Kiss on the center of each pretzel
3. Bake for 3 minutes...just enough to soften the kiss, but not melt it
4. Remove from oven and immediately press on M&M into the center of each kiss. Place in the fridge and allow to cool completely.
