Pretzel Kisses Make the Best Holiday Snacks
This recipe is not only simple to make, but it only takes three ingredients as well.
Plus, this is such a family-friendly recipe that all can help with. Each person can have their own step to do and then everyone can watch as it comes together in just a few moments of time.
While we love to make and keep this at home, we also like to make and take it with us when we’re on the go or traveling for the holidays. I’m not a huge fan of stopping along the way to our destination so these snacks make it possible for us to stay on the road traveling as well.
All you need to do is gather up the short list of needed ingredients below.
Ingredients needed for Pretzel Kisses
Utz Butter Waffles & Classic Wheels Pretzel Variety 4- PackHERSHEY’S KISSES Holiday Candy Cane Christmas Chocolate Mint Candy with Peppermint Stripes, 33 oz. BagM&M’s Holiday Chocolate Mints Candy 9.2 Ounce Bag (Pack of 6)
We always have a lot of fun making these delicious holiday treats. While we make up a big batch of these and keep them at our house, we also make up plenty of extras to share with all our family and friends.
One of the best parts of making these Pretzel Kisses is pushing that M&M down on top of the Hershey Kiss. It’s such a fun feeling and it just looks really cool. (the kids love doing this as well so they’ll likely take over this job!)
The more that you press down, the more that the kiss spreads down on the surface of the pretzel. It’s so much fun and depending on how many people are making these, you’ll be able to tell a pattern or who is making them how just by looking at them.
Just head to the store and buy a fun festive holiday tin to put them in or decorate a fun bag as well. Once you hand-deliver them to all the recipients, it’s certain to make their day!
If you find that you have any leftover, just make certain that you store them in an airtight container. Leaving them out will cause the pretzels to get stale and nobody wants that!
Don’t forget to print off the recipe below and share it with your family and friends! This is also a super simple recipe to make for a holiday party, a class party or for a fun weekend at home.
