Holiday Pretzel Kiss Candy Recipe


  • Small, waffle-shaped pretzels
  • Hershey’s Kisses (plain old chocolate are good, but my favorite are the Candy Cane Kisses–any variety of Kisses or Hugs will work)
  • Red & green M&M’s
  • Cookie sheet and parchment paper

1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or wax paper). Spread out pretzels.

2. Put a Hershey’s Kiss or Hug in the center of each pretzel.

3. Heat oven to 170°. Place baking sheet in oven for 6 minutes. Kisses will just begin to melt and look shiny, but will not lose their shape.

4. Gently top each Kiss with an M&M, with the “m” side down. It should immediately push the Kiss’ point down, but if you have to press it into the Kiss, you may need to heat them a little longer.

Place in the freezer until the Kiss is hard again. Package them in a cello bag, add a bow and a tag, and you’re good to go!
