Pretzel Yums:
A Sweet, Sweet Treat


These treats will make a sweet gift:

  • Preheat your oven to 170 degrees.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Let children help place small waffle-shaped pretzels (Snyder's makes them) onto the paper.
  • Invite children to place an unwrapped Hershey's kiss (any kind without a nut) on top of the pretzel.
  • Bake the pretzels for 4 to 6 minutes or until chocolate feels soft.
  • Remove pretzels from oven and press an M&M into the center of the kiss.
  • Refrigerate the Pretzel Yums for 15 minutes, then wrap handfuls in small gift bags for giving.
