I make these every once in a while when I need a salt/sweet fix. I also make them when I have left over pretzels, M&M's or chocolate. At specific holiday's I use appropriate colored M&M's and chocolate. I use different colored chocolate disks from my candy and cake shop. I know that Hobby Lobby and Michaels both carry the colored disk from Wilton. I think the disk melt up so smooth. My 4 year old son likes to help put the M&M's on. It does go much quicker with someone putting the M&M's on. I'm only giving basic amounts, you will probably have left overs of one or the other. I usually run out of the colored chocolate.
