St. Patrick’s Day Treat… a few months late!


I made these  are a few months back to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at a shindig that a friend was hosting.  Even though I missed the boat on posting them for the holiday, these bite size treats could be made year round for a variety of festivities using the other M & M colors.  Many of the pins I saw on Pinterest showed these snacks with an icing stem to make them look more like shamrocks.  In the end I chose not to using the icing because it didn’t harden and would make transport difficult.


What you’ll need:

  • Pretzels
  • M&M’s
  • Hershey Kisses
  • Parchment Paper
  • Writing Icing (optional)

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

IMG_1943Lay out your pretzels on parchment paper.  We still do not have cooking gas, almost 9 MONTHS later, so I am still working with what I have and using my toaster oven for all cooking endeavors.

IMG_1944Place a Hershey Kiss in the center of each pretzel.  Bake at 200 for about 7 minutes.  You want the chocolate to be soft so you can easily put the M&M’s in place but you don’t want it to be melted.  As all ovens are different, keep an eye on your first batch.
