Chocolate Pretzels

Before Silver Bella, there was Jingle Bella. In my searching for more information about it, I came across this recipe from the fabulous McFoof herself’s blog – and my life has not been same since. Neither has my waist line, but that’s another story!

After sharing some of these tasty treats with friends, I’ve been asked (and begged) to share this easy peasy recipe. I wouldn’t dare be the one to ruin your holiday treats, especially with one so absolutely easy! I’d imagine that this would be an ideal activity/treat to do with young(er) children as they can unwrap the candies you use and help you smoosh the M&M’s in too. Enjoy!


Tiny pretzels
Hershey's Kisses
Plain M&M’s
Parchment Paper


Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

Place a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet (this may save you cleaning time later!). Place pretzels on cookie sheet, making sure they’re all flat and not laying all over each other. Then, place an unwrapped Hershey's Kiss on top of each pretzel.

Bake pretzels for about 4 minutes; just enough to get the chocolate to melt. Too long and the chocolate dries out and won't cooperate. Take the cookie sheet out of the oven, and set it onto something to protect your countertops (if that is something you need to worry about). Then, individually press 3 M&M's into the chocolate to fill in the holes. Then, slide the parchment paper onto your table and reload your sheet or refrigerate to set the chocolate.

Yummy. Simple. Fast....gotta love it.

I’ve tried this yummy treat with Reece’s mini peanut butter cups (SOO yummy). They’re a little messier because of the peanut butter, but tasty none the less! This year, I used Rolos and pressed a pecan half into the softened chocolate for a turtle pretzel! Yum!

also a great variation is take a pretzel and Rolo -- put the rolo on the pretzel for just a few minutes -- 1or 2 -- then enjoy.. Carmel, chocolate, and salt.. yummy.
