Easy Snack

"This is a fun, easy recipe and it's very addictive. It's fun to change the colors of the M&M's with the holidays! I got this recipe from a friend of mine and I believe that she got it out of Taste of Home magazine possibly?? The quantity that you'll get will depend on the number of pretzels that are in the particular bag that you're buying. Be sure to allow for broken pretzels in the bag as that's just inevitable. I have only been able to find the "square" pretzels at Walmart."

Ready In:


  • 1 (15 ounce) bag square waffle pretzels
  • 2 (13 ounce) bags Hershey chocolate kisses
  • 1 (14 ounce) bag peanut butter M&M's


  • Turn oven onto warm (approximately 170 degrees).
  • Line a cookie sheet with the pretzels.
  • I used a cookie sheet with sides so that they would not slide off.
  • Unwrap a Hershey Kiss and place it in the center of each pretzel and continue doing that until every pretzel has a Hershey Kiss sitting on top of it.
  • Place cookie sheet in oven.
  • Check them every few minutes until the Hershey Kiss gets glossy.
  • This takes about 5 minutes.
  • In the meantime put the M&M's in a bowl.
  • When the Hershey Kiss is sufficently melted (it will still look like a kiss, but will be shiny) take the cookie sheet out of the oven.
  • Take one M&M and place it on top of the Hershey Kiss and give it a little"squish".
  • This pushes the chocolate into the pretzel and adheres all three pieces together.
  • I used all of the colorful M&M's and ate the brown ones!
  • Do this until each pretzel/kiss is topped with a M&M.
  • I placed the whole cookie sheet in the refrigerator until they firmed up.
  • I've also used the Hershey Hugs instead of the Hershey Kisses.
  • The Hershey Hugs will melt FASTER than the Hershey Kisses, so watch carefully!
  • I've also used plain M&M's instead of the peanut butter ones as well.

    this is an awesome recipe! so easy to make that kids can help also. they look great and taste yummy. 5 stars all the way! our family's preference is for Rollos (heated at 250 degrees for 3-4 minutes) and peanut M&Ms.

    These are addictive! Also try putting a rolo candy instead of hershey kiss and a walnut instead of the m&m, super good this way too!

    Loved the combination of pretzel and chocolate. A little time consuming to make, but easy.

    My niece and I made these and had a lot of fun. Loved the sweet/salty combination and they are super easy to make.

    I used milk chocolate M&M's, rather than peanut butter.

    These are fun to make and cute! I used regular M&Ms in holiday colors, and instead of Kisses, I used chocolate stars - they fit the pretzels perfectly and I didn't have to unwrap them! I got a lot of comments about how cute these were when I put them in gift baskets and also when I brought them to work. We used to make chocolate dipped pretzels every Christmas, but now we will make these instead. Thank you!
