Chocolate pretzel treats

I've seen these little pretzel-Hershey's kiss-M&M treats floating around the Pinterest world for a while.  Hershey's kisses or hugs, different colored M&M's - I've seen them all.  They looked cute but a little tedious (imagine needing 50 Hershey's kisses for a recipe....and having to unwrap them all....).  But with leftover pretzels from two other holiday recipes, I bought a bag of kisses.  I already had some white chocolate peppermint M&M's in the kitchen, so it seemed like a good idea to use those.  Plus, they were white and red, so perfectly festive for the upcoming holidays!

They're actually pretty insanely easy to make. Line a baking sheet with some parchment paper. Place the pretzels flat and not overlapping. Place an unwrapped Hershey's kiss in the center of each pretzel. Place in the oven at low heat (250- 275F) for a few minutes, until kisses are soft but still hold their shape (mine were in for about 2 and a half minutes). Remove from the oven and press an M&M into the top of each Hershey's kiss. Place the tray in the oven until the kisses have hardened. Place them in a bowl, or wrap them to give as gifts.
