How does an easy, chocolatey Christmas treat sound? Good? Glad we’re on the same page.
Christmas baking is the best. Crumbly sugar cookies, spiced desserts, candy cane everything, and lots of chocolate! I went the chocolate route and made these chocolate pretzel rings for a cookie swap on Sunday.
Side note: because of the cookie swap, this will be known as the week of a thousand delicious cookies. Because they are ALL delicious, and I am eating them ALL.
This recipe is so easy, it’s almost not a recipe. Still, I wanted to share!
Chocolate Pretzel Rings
M & M’s
Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Line baking sheet with wax or parchment paper.
Spread pretzel rings and place kiss in each one.
Bake for 2-4 minutes, until kisses are shiny and melting.
Top with M&M.
Store in fridge or freezer until chocolate is hard. Store pretzel rings in airtight container.
You can have fun with all the varieties of kisses and M&Ms. I made two batches: one with Candy Cane kisses and milk chocolate M&Ms, the other with milk chocolate kisses and peanut butter M&Ms. I loved them both!
What do you have planned for the Christmas season? Kitchen-wise, I want to make gingerbread something and marshmallows covered in caramel and Rice Krispies. I also want to drive around looking at Christmas lights with my honey, listen to lots of Christmas Pandora stations, and see my family. I love all the warm fuzzies that go along with the holidays!
