A lot of you have probably seen and made this candy before. On the off chance that you haven’t, I just had to post it so you won’t miss out. This candy is super simple and so delicious!! Plus, kids can easily help with this one, which makes for a fun family activity that requires just three ingredients! These might be my new favorite Christmas candy because they are a sweet/salty treat that is super low maintenance to make! Also, you can make these year round with the different seasonal m&m’s. This is such a fun and festive treat for the holidays! The ingredients below don’t have a quantity because you can make as few or many as you would like.
Christmas Kiss Pretzel Candy

Pretzels (can use waffle, holiday or regular twists)
Hershey’s Hugs or Kisses
Preheat oven to 170 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Unwrap hugs & kisses and place them in bowls.
Place pretzels on prepared baking sheets. Top each one with a hug or kiss. If you are using hugs, place the ones with hugs on a separate baking sheet than the kisses because they bake for less time than the regular kisses.
Once all pretzels are topped with hugs & kisses, bake the “hugs” for 4-6 minutes, and the “kisses” for 5-7 minutes. Remove from oven when slightly soft. Top each one with an m&m and lightly press down.
Let set for a minute or two, then place in refrigerator for 10 to 15 minutes to set. Remove from baking sheets and place in an airtight container. I kept mine in the fridge to store so they didn’t get melty and they taste amazing cold!!
