Easy Pretzel Kiss Candies with Hershey's Candy Cane Kisses

Easy Pretzel Kiss Candies with Hershey's Candy Cane Kisses and holiday M&Ms make for the perfect little holiday have-on-hand gift or snacking treat.  But be careful, they're addictive!

Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone ... and it's now time to turn full attention to Christmas!  And these little easy Pretzel Kiss Candies are one ... well ... easy  way to start gettin' our Christmas spirit on.  There are versions of these allllllllllllll over the Internet, I know.  But that's just because they're so good!  This particular version uses Hershey's Candy Cane Kisses topped with holiday M&Ms.  The stripes of the Candy Cane Kisses are so pretty {and so yummy, too}.

Now, my Mom did a really smart thing with these Pretzel Kiss Candies.  With just one simple trick, she turned these into have-on-hand little gifts ... for friends, neighbors, whoever ...
Check it out!

She piled a big handful of these little jewels in a small plastic cup, wrapped the cup with cello, and tied a festive ribbon:


Easy little gift to grab-and-go whenever you need one!  Great thinkin', Mom.  Great thinkin'.

Maybe this year I'll be smart like Mom and whip up a big batch of these easy Pretzel Kiss Candies and always have a gift on hand, too.


Or maybe I'll whip up a big batch of these and hoard them all to myself to nibble on.

Easy Pretzel Kiss Candies

  • Round pretzels*
  • Candy Cane Hershey's Kisses, unwrapped
  • Red and green M&Ms
  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Line pretzels up on baking sheet and place an unwrapped Kiss in the center of each pretzel. Bake for approximately 4 minutes until Kiss begins to soften. {NOTE: The Kisses may retain their shape and not appear to be melting. Touch the tip of a Kiss and gently press down to check. If the Kiss still feels hard to the touch, continue baking until soft.}
  3. Remove pan from the oven and, working quickly, immediately place an M&M on top of each Kiss. Let candies cool completely on the pan before removing.
*If you can't find round pretzels, square pretzel snaps or regular small twists work, as well.

  5. I recently started sharing recipes on The Jenny Evolution and thought it would be terrific to have a group on FB where we can share our recipes not just with other bloggers but with people who are searching out recipes. That said, I’m launching a Food Blogger group! If we work together we can make this a great outlet for all of us. If you’d like to join, visit me here
