A Big Ol' Plate of Goodness

No time to get your holiday baking on? No biggie. Me neither. But these little suckers are easy and addicting to eat.
You need: mini pretzels, kisses, some M&Ms.
That's it.

I made three kinds using the peppermint, regular chocolate, and carmel kisses. I have to say the peppermint are my favorite, but my husband loves the carmel ones. We had already eaten one whole cookie pan full before I took this picture. Addicting.

Lay a layer of parchment paper or foil on one of your cookie sheets. Place the pretzels on the pan with one kiss in the middle of each. Bake in the oven at 200 degrees for 6 minutes. Pull them out and press the kiss flat with an M&M. Place the tray in the fridge to cool and the chocolate to harden up. Peel off the parchment paper and start poppin them. You won't be able to stop at 1 or 2 or 3....It's something about the salty crunch with the sweet. If I had been really "with-it" (I never am), I would have had the Christmas M&Ms in red and green. But I had a only a couple bags of regular so that's what I used. Then I ran out half way through and started pressing the carmel ones flat with leftover pretzel bits. That was pretty good too. Kinda tasted like those chocolate turtles. If you had some pecans, you could also press the carmel ones down with a nut. That would also be super tasty.

I transferred them into this casserole pan because it has a snap on lid and the ants this year have been really bad because of all the extra rain. We are constantly fighting them in our kitchen and house. Yeah, super classy, huh?

Enjoy. I know we are.


  1. I saw those online & thought about making them for a cookie exchange my cousin is having. Good to know they taste good! I might actually give it a go now.


  2. Thank you, Jenny. I do not bake, I don't even try, but this recipe looked too easy to pass up. Troy has eaten SO many, but I can not find the carmel kisses. ??? Where did you get them? Thanks for sharing. I heart you.
