Chocolate Pretzel Bites

I don’t know about you, but I love a snack with a salty-sweet combination! These Chocolate Pretzel Bites are one of my favorite snacks to bring to parties and other functions…..and I never have any to bring back home with me because everyone devours them!

Someone brought these to a playgroup cookie swap that I attended 3-4 years ago and I have been making them ever since then. They are super easy to make too!

You just need small pretzels (either round or square), Hershey kisses, and M&M’s. These are the pretzels that I use:

Preheat your oven to 170 degrees F.

Place pretzels on a baking sheet and put 1 Hershey kiss on each pretzel:

I put mine in the oven for about 7 minutes, but cooking times may vary from oven to oven.

Next, place 1 M&M on each Hershey kiss and push it down into the chocolate. If you find that the Hershey kiss isn’t melted all the way when you put the M&M on it, just put them in the oven for a little longer and then try again.

This is what it will look like:

I usually wait until the pan has cooled and then stick the whole thing in the fridge to set the chocolate because I am not patient enough! Ha!
These treats are very versatile too! Last year, I made some with Rolo’s and pecan halves to make a chocolate turtle candy. Yum!

In the past, I have used specific colors of M&M’s for baby showers and birthday parties as well as team colors for a super bowl party!

One of my friends used Sponge Bob graham crackers (because they are small), kisses, and marshmallows for a S’mores bite! So fun!

Use a ROLO instead of a kiss and a pecan halve instead of the M&M and they will taste like a turtle. Soooooo good!
