Quick Christmas Treats

If you need a quick snack for your child's holiday party or just something for the upcoming holiday, try these delicious little treats!

Quick treats using pretzels, Hershey kisses and M & Ms

Originally found at House on Hilltop these were inexpensive and tasted great. For less than $10 I got everything I needed to make a batch of 80 and had enough supplies left over to make another batch.  I probably could have made them for even less had I planned ahead and found some coupons or went to a less expensive grocer.  

I followed the original Pinner's instructions by preheating the oven to 225 degrees, laying all my pretzels out in one layer on a cookie sheet, unwrapping Hershey Kisses and placing them on the top of each pretzel.  I put them in the oven for about 4 minutes.  When I took them out, the chocolate was soft enough that you could push an M & M into each one.  I put them in the fridge to help them cool, packed them up in little holiday bags and sent them off to school for my 3 year old's holiday party.  Everyone, including the teachers, enjoyed them.  Best part about took less than a half hour from start to finish AND I had my little guy helping me!

One thing to note, the original Pinner used round pretzels.  I couldn't find them anywhere so I just used the square ones.  They worked just as well.  You could also use any color M & M's depending on the holiday or occasion. 

Overall this pin gets a big PIN from me!  I recommend you try them and make extras because you'll probably be sneaking a few!
