Recipe: Pretzels with Hershey Kisses

I was asked for this recipe and am finally getting around to posting it. Sorry for the delay.

The key to making these fun, easy treats is the timing. You'll want to watch the timing in the oven carefully and immediately upon removing add the M&M's/Smarties.

Round or Square Waffle shaped pretzels (1 bag)
Christmas M&M's or Smarties (1 large package)
Hershey Kisses (4 bags)

Spray cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.

Place pretzels on cookie sheet in 1 layer. (I found I could put about 3 dozen on a sheet at a time. More than that and they cooled too quickly before smarties could be added at the end.)

Unwrap kisses and place 1 kiss in the middle of each pretzel.

Bake at 275oF for 3 mins. (Just enough to soften, not melt)

Remove from oven and place a smartie in the centre of each kiss. Press down gently but not all the way to the bottom.

Place tray in refrigerator and cool for at least 30 mins.


Thanks again for the recipe and initial ingredients Julie! These have been a real hit over the Christmas season and I'll be taking more with me to parties on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.


  1. You're bringing these on New Years Day??? hubba hubba!!!!!!!!!

  2. Sounds yummy.....might have to try those next year....

  3. These are deadly god. Someone brought them to the office and, well, I had a hard time getting out of the kitchen!

  4. Ohhhh those look just as yummy as they did the last time you posted them!!

    I still haven't seen round pretzels anywhere out west here!!

    Thanks for all the wonderful posts and emails you sent over the holidays!!!

    I really missed you and was talking non-stop at the in-laws about our upcoming get together!!!

    Not many more sleeps now!!

  5. Sounds great...I can't wait to make them!

  6. We love thees around our house at Christmas time. They are so much fun to make with my 4 year old.

  7. OMGosh those look awesome!!! I'm printing it out right now and am going to make them this week. Yum!!!

  8. Couldn't imagine making these with Smarties, but then I googled Smarties in Canada and see that they are totally different candies than Smarties in the US.

  9. Yum sounds great ! I was wondering if you would post the recipe!
    They are so pretty .
    PS. incase you were wondering what smarties in the US are (noticed comment above) they are the same as our roll of rocket candies and she is right they wouldn't look as pretty as our smarties! she'll have to try M&M's or skittles! LOL
    Happy New Year Cathrine! May the next 7 months slip by quickly for you.

  10. Instead of spraying the pan with non-stick spray, do you think parchment paper would work okay?

    1. I'm sure it work, possibly better than spraying the pan!
