It’s almost Valentine’s Day! YAY! Valentine’ Day is so much fun because it’s all about love, chocolate and flowers! And usually everything is PINK!
To get in the spirit of the next upcoming holiday I made these festive pretzel M&M bites with Valentine colored M&M’s. They are so delicious!! I found the recipe on Allrecipes.com. Check out the recipe here!
One thing I changed was adding Butter Pretzels instead of the plain variety. Believe me-it makes all the difference!!
First thing is first-you have to unwrap all the Hershey Kisses. This took me a while because the wrappers kept tarring and getting all over the place. So, if you are going to make these, be sure to set some time aside for this step!
The next step is to place the amount of butter pretzels on the baking sheet. It doesn’t matter if they are close together. In fact, the more you can fit on the baking sheet-the better! Place a hershey kiss on top of each pretzel and bake in the oven at 275° for 2-3 minutes, according to the recipe.
After they are placed in the oven for a few minutes, you will see the hershey kisses start to melt. Take out the tray and top with the M&M’s!
After this the pretzel bites will need to sit for a bit. The recipe said you can pop them in the freezer to firm up but I just let mine sit out at room temperature until they hardened.
I added a really cute ribbon and tag to these fun boxes. I always love things that come in pretty packages.
Another fun variation is to add personalized M&M’s! I had these made before my husband and I were married. We thought about using them for favors but in the end went in a different direction. So we had a few bags sitting around and I decided to add them to a few pretzels.
These are so easy and fun to make and can be adapted to any holiday or party. These pretzel M&M bites are sure to be a hit at your next gathering. I promise!!
