Happy Happy Monday! Did you have a good weekend? Weekends are always a bit hectic with two little ones, but I must admit that I spent every spare moment I could sitting by our Christmas tree. Really, is there anything better than the twinkle of those lights?
Oh and I did some “baking”. Ha ha ha, are you laughing yet? It counts as baking if you use the oven, right?!?!?
By now you know I stick with recipes that are 5 ingredients or less. So far in the 30 Days in a Holiday State of Mind series, we have done 5-ingredient King’s Hawaiian Sliders and 2-ingredient Pumpkin Muffins.
Someday I will be all fancy and use a recipe book. But in this season of my life with two little ones to tend to, I am good with 20 minutes in the kitchen and only a handful of ingredients!
Today I am sharing a quick “cookie” “recipe”. Honestly I use the word cookie and recipe lightly here people. It is really just a pretzel, with a melted Hershey kiss and kissed with an M&M.
Now we are talking!
And the best part? It is the PERFECT blend of sweet and salty.
Heat oven to 200 degrees.
Layer pretzels flat on a cookie sheet.
Unwrap Hershey Kisses. This part actually takes the longest! I promise I didn’t eat ANY along the way…
Stick them into the oven to melt. (2-3 minutes)
Once the chocolate is melted, “kiss” them with an M&M.
Now, this first batch below I didn’t melt them long enough. I only did 2 minutes. They should be more flat and melted. These still taste great, but they look much cuter when they are more melted!
I made a couple variations and BY FAR I liked the caramel with peanut M&M’s. As much I like the red stripe, the minty flavored Hershey was my least fave.
Happy “baking”! 🙂
Ho, Ho, Ho!
