Holiday Treats: Pretzel Treats

One of the best treats to make this time of year with your kids are Pretzel Treats. They are really easy for little children to do. They feel like they are "cooking" ... but really they are just unwrapping chocolates and practicing their fine motor skills as they place them on the pretzels! These are so easy to make and they are great for putting together gifts for neighbors or friends. 
Materials Needed:
  • Bite-sized pretzels
  • Red and Green M&Ms
  • Hershey Kisses

Set the oven to its lowest setting (170 degrees) and as it heats up, unwrap the kisses and place them on top of a layer of pretzels on a cookie sheet (use parchment paper if you want--I have never done that). Bake 4-6 minutes until the kisses begin to melt. Don't let them stay in there too long. Remove from the oven and immediately place a red or green M&M into the center of the kiss, squishing it down. Cool them and place them in the fridge for awhile to set. Enjoy!!!
