Kiss-a-Pretzel

by Melanie

This is a fabulous snack that children of all ages can help make. It is perfect for snack time, party time and also makes a great little gift for anyone including grandma and grandpa. You will need Hershey Kisses (or similar shape chocolate), small candy coated chocolates and small waffle (grid) pretzels.

The first step is for you and your child to remove wrappers from the Kisses. While you unwrap the Hershey Kisses, preheat your oven to 170 degrees. By the time you are done unwrapping, the oven should be ready. You and your child should now place pretzels in a single layer on a foil lined cookie sheet. Then, place 1 Kiss on each pretzel.

Now you (not your child) place cookie sheet in hot oven and bake for about 4 or 5 minutes. The Kiss will be soft but not completely melted. Do not over bake or you will have a messy treat.

The next steps you will probably want to do since the cookie sheet will be hot. Remove from oven and quickly place a candy coated chocolate on top of each softened Kiss and press down lightly. To involve your child let them hand you the candy. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes, remove from sheet and place on plate in refrigerator for 1/2 hour to make sure they are completely cooled.

Once they are completely cooled, you can store the Kiss-a-Pretzels in a bowl, tray or jar. If giving as a gift let you child decorate a plastic container or jar with stickers or ribbons.
