Looking for a fun and festive activity to do with your family ( or friends or by yourself) while you are tucked safely away in your house this season?

I’ve gotcha covered. 👍

These bites have a sweet and salty combo that totally comes into play. They are also totally addictive.  You will mean to eat just one and before you know it, you have consumed way more than you need. Then, your family ( or friends or yourself) will be wondering where the heck all their fun crafty-snack activity things went.

What Ingredients are Needed?

  • Square Pretzels: Sometimes, these are referred to as “snap” pretzels
  • Hershey’s Kiss chocolate candies
  • M & M candies

A note about the kiss candies: I find that the chocolate kisses work best with these. This year, I gave white chocolate/sugar cookie kisses a try and they melted much faster than the chocolate version. They tasted “ok”, but, were kinda a mess.

In short, you can try other versions of the kiss candies. But, keep a close eye on them in the oven, as the time may be shorter/longer than noted in the recipe card. Also, if they are a success, please let me know!

Fun bites made with chocolate, pretzels and candy pieces!

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 2 minutes
Additional Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 17 minutes


  • 24- square pretzels or pretzel “snaps”
  • 24- Hershey’s chocolate kisses candies
  • 24- candy coated chocolate (ex: M & Ms)
  • sprinkles, optional 


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a flat rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
    2. Lay pretzels flat on baking sheet, They don't need to be spaced out too much, maybe 1/4 of an inch. Then, place a Hershey’s kiss on top of each pretzel.
    3. Bake in oven for just 1-2 minutes. You want the chocolate warm and soft, but, not completely melted and still have their shape.
    4. Remove from oven and place a candy piece in the middle. Gently push down on chocolate to spread chocolate. Creating a “button”. If desired, top with sprinkles .
    5. Place in fridge and let them set for about an hour before serving.
