Christmas Pretzel Candies

The easiest recipe of all. Perfect for parties and snacks. I made these for the 3rd grade class. My little boy helped me sort the M&Ms into colors, then helped me count them and bag them up in an A, B pattern. You can use any small shape pretzel and chocolates. For our Christmas treat plate, I'm going to use rolos and toasted pecans on the pretzels. A friend who made these said the peppermint kisses were also good, so I'll make some of those too.

from family fun

Bite-size, waffle-shaped pretzels
Hershey's Hugs (fyi- 2 bags gave me 150 treats)
M&M's plain candy

Heat the oven to 170F. Set a number of bite-size, waffle-shaped pretzels (one for each treat) in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, then top each pretzel with an unwrapped Hershey's Hug.
Bake for 4 to 6 minutes (white chocolate will melt more quickly), until the chocolates feel soft when touched with a wooden spoon. Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and quickly press an M&M's candy into the center of each Kiss.
Allow the treats to cool for a few minutes, then place them in the refrigerator to set, about 10 minutes. (I kept mine in the garage where it's cold) Allow them to set completely before bagging up.
