Christmas Baking!

Can you tell which ones Austin worked on?

This holiday snack is great for making with kids.  Austin not only loved the taste testing, but he was a good helper too!  He was great at laying out the pretzels and loved pushing the M&M's into the gooey chocolate.  We made up a little song and sang it while we baked.  Lucy was at our feet the entire time waiting for anything that fell on the floor, which was a lot considering my baking partner.

And the best part?  Eating all of the ones that didn't come out "perfect."  Thanks to Austin for many of those.  :)  No matter what they looked like, though, they were still delicious!!

Holiday Pretzel Treats

  • 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 Kiss or Hershey's Hug.
  • Bake for 4 to 6 minutes (the 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. Place handfuls of the candies in clear plastic bags and tie on colorful ribbons.
