Pretzels + Chocolate = Yummy!!

It's time to get the children (or grandchildren) involved in making goodies for Christmas. So I'm going to present several ideas that can be done with little ones with just a little supervision and help from mom or dad.

Hugs and Kisses Holiday Pretzels

3 bags checkerboard, windowpane, or round pretzels
1 (large pound size) bag M&Ms plain chocolate candies (use red and green)
3 (13 ounce) bags Hershey's Hugs chocolates
3 (13 ounce) bags Hershey's chocolate kisses

Preheat oven to 170 degrees.

Open the bags of pretzels and place them on a parchment or waxed paper-lined cookie sheets in a single layer. DO ONLY ONE TYPE OF CANDY PER SHEET because the Hugs melt faster than the kisses.

Unwrap Hugs or Kisses, place one on each pretzel, repeat for an entire cookie sheet.
Place cookie sheets in the preheated oven, bake 4 MINUTES FOR THE SHEET OF pretzels and HUGS, 5-6 minutes for the pretzels and KISSES. Remove from oven and immediately put a M&M on top of each pretzel/chocolate, pressing down gently. Place cookie sheet in freezer or refrigerator until the chocolate is reset.
