  • Mini Pretzel
  • Dark Chocolate Hershey Kisses: You can use any type of Hershey Chocolate Kisses. I have also seen people use Rolo chocolate. You can get creative and have fun with changing it up to what you want!
  • Milk Chocolate M&M’s


  1. Preheat Oven to 200 degrees fahrenheit
  2. Lay Pretzels on sheet pan. I did not use parchment paper and it was fine, but you can do that if you want.
  3. Bake in the oven for 4-6 minutes. The chocolate should look shiny and soft and you don’t want it all the way melted.
  4. Press one M&M in the center of the chocolate kiss pressing it down towards the pretzel.
  5. Place the sheet pan in the fridge or freezer to chill or until firmly set.
  6. Store in airtight container

Recipe Tips and Advice

  • You will want to double your batch depending on the size of the party. These pretzel Christmas treats are so tasty so they will go fast.
  • Have your kids help you unwrap all the Hershey’s kisses
  • You can store on a plate or a bowl. If they are fresh out of the fridge you can store them in a bowl, but make sure to keep them chilled. As they get soft and warmer they will start to stick to one another.
  • When I get to the party I keep the in the fridge until they are ready to start eating. They taste best when they are fresh out of the fridge.
  • You can make this treat for any holiday. Just add what seasonal M&M’s is out for the holiday that you want to make it for. I do this for Halloween and Easter.

Add more to them

I’ve seen people add holiday sprinkles over the top of the pretzel treats. You can also add an additional pretzel on top making it almost like a pretzel chocolate sandwich. You get more salty with the sweet.

You can also add Rolos or any other favorite chocolates that you love. The creativity with these are endless. Share with me what you love to do with these treats in the comments below.
