Life Throws You Curve Balls, You Learn to hit them out of the Park!

Our Favorite Christmas Treat

Every year, during the holidays, we stock up on M&M’s in Christmas colors, Hersey kisses & pretzels that are round. These yummy ingredients make one of our favorite Christmas treats. We call them pretzel snacks. Our friends call them reindeer noses. Whatever. They are fabulous no matter what you call them. Salty. Sweet. Yum.

These are super easy. My kids can pretty much make them on their own. Preheat your oven to 225 degrees. Now, spread the round pretzels on a cookie sheet so that they lie flat. Fill it up. These treats are addictive and you’re going to wish you made more.

Unwrap about a million kisses, one for each pretzel and one for each kid’s mouth every few minutes. Place one kiss in each pretzel.

Now, place the cookie sheet into your oven. Allow the kisses to melt. Don’t leave the room. This really takes only 3 or 4 minutes. Maybe less, depending on your oven. Take them out as soon as the kisses are melted, but still hold their shape. If you leave them in too long, they will dry out and become hard.

Now, press one M&M into each kiss. Push them around a little so that chocolate touches all of the edges of the pretzels.

Allow the chocolate to set up and enjoy. They will set up fine at room temperature, but we usually end up sticking them in the fridge to encourage the process. We’re impatient. Enjoy. Share them, you will be loved by all.

Merry Christmas to you all from all of us on Hilltop.

Note: I buy the Seyfert’s brand of round pretzels. I find them at Kroger. You can see if this brand or their sister brands are sold in your area here.
