I don't know what these are called...

I got this recipe off of I love how the recipes have a rating system and a place to leave comments about how it really tastes. It cracks me up how some people change like 9 out of the 10 ingredients and then rate it 5 stars.

We'll just call these...

Candy Pretzels
Mini square or round pretzels (I believe Snyder's calls them snaps. They're square, though I read in some places you can find round ones.)
Hershey Kisses
Pecan halves

There are many variations to this little treat. We tried two. Place as many pretzels as you can fit onto a cookie sheet. Top each one with a Hershey Kiss. Place them in a 350° oven for about 2 minutes. You really have to watch them. Once the kisses are shiny, they are usually ready. Remove them from the oven and gently push the kiss down with a single M&M. Let them cool and then chill. This doesn't take long at all and kids are good helpers.
We also made them with a Rolo candy in place of the kiss and topped those with pecan halves. They were both good but I am partial to the Rolo ones. Yum!
I read about using Hugs or caramel Kisses. These would be a super easy and cute addition to your Christmas goodies plate for your neighbors this year if you use red and green M&M's. Or pink and red for Valentines Day...

(I put ours in the freezer to speed up the chilling process so they look a little frosty in the picture.)

I always make these at Christmas time. They're yummy and easy for children to help make. You can even just use regular mini pretzels and just balance the kiss on the criss-cross of the pretzel.

Someone made the rolo version for me for Christmas last year. They were yummy! They taste kind of like a turtle. (The chocolate kind!)

I make these pretzels too...they are amazing with the hershey kiss and a peanutbutter m&m instead of plain Yummy!
Cute blog!
