Nothing bad about this recipe!! Except it becomes addictive!! Did some with rolos and did some with kisses. Thanks :)
I made a variation of these for goodie bags for friends and family. I used Rollos instead of Kisses and topped them off with another snap pretzel...they were a big hit!!
We make these at Xmas most of the time, and use the red and green xmas M&M's. Also, these work best with those square, grid-shaped pretzels called Snaps. These are very quick and easy and a nice blend of sweet and salty. You can mix it up by using different flavors of Hershey Kisses; there are many varieties now. Thanx for posting!
As a reply to the problems rippacurloahu had on December 20, 2013.<br/><br/>Chocolate is very cranky about being melted if your oven is over 250 degrees the kisses will only harden and under they will not soften enough either way the M&M will be difficult to insert. Yours might have been off, for cheap insurance we use a oven thermometer to keep a check on the oven temperature when baking.<br/><br/>I make these every Christmas with the kids and bring a large batch into the office. Someone this year said it wouldn't be Christmas without them. I have talked about using candy hearts on Valentines day or marshmallows and another pretzel to make mini "smores", but nothing beats the salty sweet taste of these.
what a waste! the hersey kisses turned into brittle and could not hold the M&M's. if i could upload a photo, it will show the kisses falling apart and not melting. i just wasted 20minutes and 210 pieces of treats.
This was a perfect recipe to do with my 5 and 7 year old. It was so easy, but also amazingly delicious..and very cute. We also made some with peanut butter M&Ms. YUM! Such a great combo of sweet&salty, crunchy&smooth.
Fun - easy %u2013 fast! I used dark chocolate kisses and peppermint candy corn for my first time %u2018playing%u2019 with this. Got the candy corn idea from Jennibear%u2019s photo - simply fun %u2013 thanks, looking forward to more. The idea of Rollos topped off with another pretzel - thanks Deborah23. What a fun time to be in the kitchen.
Just finished making these with my 5 year-old grandson. A great little "baking" project for tiny chefs -- and very yummy every step of the way!
These worked for Halloween, too! Love them - thank you!
Great and easy recipe.
