Sharing these super easy and cute chocolate pretzel Kisses
They are bite-size and easy (ish) to portion control. I made my first batch over the holidays and have them in my holiday rotation. The pastel M&M’s are perfect for spring treats and maybe a small gathering.
They are the perfect salty-sweet combo. The hardest part is waiting for the M&M’s to “set” on top of a slightly melted Hershey Kiss.
Can you stand it?
CHOCOLATE PRETZEL KISSES
It takes longer to unwrap the Hershey Kisses than to bake and top them off with a spring mix of M&M’s. It’s also a challenge to unwrap without sneaking a few from the bowl. Guilty!
You are only limited by the M&M seasonal candy coating offerings.
In more amazing news I did not screw these up. They are Laura fail-proof. If you have followed my blog for more than five days you know I have a history of recipe misunderstandings.
For this spring mix, I made a batch and froze the M&M kisses. They may not look as smooth and pretty when they defrost but I am not picky when I just need a little chocolate mid-day snack. The frozen Kisses make it more challenging to binge. #wink
The second best part of this 3 ingredient dessert is they look pretty when served. Most days, my recipes go sideways and many times it is the photo opp that fails. But these are too cute on camera not to share.
I usually serve them in a small bowl and they would be a great addition to a charcuterie board.
