    List of Ingredients

    one bag of square waffle pretzels
    Two bags of hershey kisses
    one bag of m&m PEANUT BUTTER candies


    Turn oven onto warm.

    Line a cookie sheet with the pretzels. I used a cookie sheet with sides so I would not have slippage.

    Unwrap a hershey kiss and place it in the center of each pretzel and continue doing that till every pretzel has a hershey kiss sitting on top of it.

    Place cookie sheet in oven. Check them every few minutes till the hershey kiss gets glossy. I dont think the hershey will lose its shape - unless it really gets hot. This takes about 5 minutes. In the meantime put the m&m's in a bowl.

    When the hershey is sufficently melted (it will still look like a kiss, but will be shinny) take the cookie sheet out of the oven. Take one m&m and place it on top of the kiss and give it a little squish. This pushes the chocolate into the pretzel and adheres all three pieces together. I used all the colorful m&m's and ate the brown ones.

    Do this till each pretzel/kiss is topped with a m&m. I placed the whole cookie sheet in the freezer but, fridge will do, till they are all chilled again.

    Note: I was able to fit 117 pretzels on a regular size jelly roll pan. I set my oven at 170 degrees (the lowest that it will let me go). I bought one of the 22-oz bags of the Hershey's Kisses and there was 136 kisses in the bag which left a few for eating! I made another pan using the Hershey's Hugs (the white chocolate ones) but instead of topping each one with a Peanut Butter M&M, I used a regular M&M on these. The white chocolate kisses need slightly LESS time in the oven though, they tended to melt faster!

    SANTA BUTTONS: Use Holiday M&Ms!!!
