Easy Yummies

Have you tried these amazing treats? They are so easy and so addictive. Of course the chocolate is the important part (and I AM thankful for chocolate every day!) but then add the saltiness of the pretzels and it is scrumptious. BUT the best part?? The girls can make them almost completely by themselves.

Step One - lay waffle pretzels onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper

Step Two - unwrap Hershey's Kisses and Hugs and put one on each pretzel (This is a great time killer on a rainy day! Just think how long it takes a 3 and 6 year to unwrap 30+ kisses!)

Step Three - bake in 250 degree oven for 8-10 minutes

Step Four - take out of oven and I slip the parchment paper off the hot cookie sheet onto the counter so the girls can then place the m & m's on top of the kiss. You can see the top photo (courtesy of of how nice they look if you do it carefully. You can choose to do it like that, or let the kids be creative on their own and see what turns out!

Step Five - Have girls go to bed, taking 2 each for their dessert and devour the rest as they peacefully sleep.

Step Six - REPEAT the next day! We are on day # 3's batch! Do you think they will really want to make more tomorrow? I can't wait until they can make a chocolate cake while I sit and chat on Facebook!

I agree totally about this project!! We made it a few years ago. They make great teacher gifts too. Just put in a pretty Christmas tin.

How have I never made these? Great idea for the girls, loving that unwrapping the kisses part!!

Those look scrumptious! And addicting! Very festive. Great idea letting the kids unwrap the kisses, because I'm not sure we'd ever get the the baking part with me eating them before getting there!
