Chocolate Christmas Pretzels

Looks like A-Tooch and Miss Yunks both have peppermint and holiday baking on the brain this week!

A-Tooch was in the mood to make some holiday treats for the office, but cookies… not so much. A former coworker once created these “chocolate huggles” as she called them and they were delish.

Pardon in advance the poor picture quality. The less-than-stellar blackberry was all I had :(

The whole enchilada took about 20 minutes to make. I took out a large baking sheet and filled it with rows of Snyder’s pretzel snaps. Next, I topped each pretzel with either a Hershey’s Candy Cane flavored kiss (one of my fav special holiday candies) or a regular Hershey’s kiss. Oh, what fun to individually unwrap an entire couple bags of kisses…

Next, pop these puppies in the oven at 350° for just 2-3 minutes, or until the chocolate begins to melt and flatten. As soon as you take the pan out of the oven, top with either a red/green M&M (for the candy cane kisses) or a red/green peanut M&M (for the regular kisses).  You can absolutely make your own substitutions here. Slide the pan in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to allow to harden.

Everyone at the office loved them and they look beautiful. The peppermint/chocolate  plus sweet/salty combinations are to die for.

Ready for their journey into the office…
