Christmas Pretzel Treats

I am loving this holiday season!  Although the kids don't get outside to play much, there are so many other new and different things to do to keep them busy.  My Dad had shoulder surgery (he is fine) on Wednesday so yesterday the kids and I wanted to make a little something to bring to him. :)  Our little project was Christmas Pretzel Treats.

Bite size waffle shaped pretzels
Hershey's kisses
Christmas colored M&M's

All you do is unwrap the kisses, place on the pretzel, when you have them finished put in the oven for 4-6 minutes on 170 degrees until the chocolate just starts to melt.  Then you place 1 M&M on each kiss and press down lightly.  Let cool.

That's it! The perfect combination of sweet and salty!  Not only are they delish but they only include three ingredients and I had two little helpers that did all the work (or most of it) for me!  They had so much fun.

Serious concentration while opening the kisses

Anya had to be closely monitored because the second the wrapper came off...she would immediately take a bite.  I came up with a system by the end to get it from her before she ate it...this was after she consumed about 5, and then was bouncing off the walls.  Oh what fun ;)

Jaxon did a great job with placement.  He was very focused. 
The finished product (Don't mind the hideous baking tray).
This was such a fun project.  Both kids loved it...but who wouldn't when getting to eat some mid-day chocolate?!  And Jaxon enjoyed giving the "present" to "Bigbee."  Jaxon is like me and loves making someone's day brighter. :)
