At my 3rd Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party on Saturday, we served a few easy treats, including Christmas colored jello shots. One snack that was a huge hit was the Christmas pretzel bites, which we renamed at the party to the inappropriate "Christmas nip bits" ... cuz well, you see.
Janice and I followed this recipe from Disney Family Fun Magazine to make this salty and sweet pretzel-chocolate combos.
Waffle-shaped pretzels - I used Snyder's Of Hanover Butter Snap Pretzels
Red and Green M&M's
Heat the oven to 170F. Set waffle-shaped pretzels in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, then top each pretzel with an unwrapped Hershey's Kiss. Bake for 5 minutes or until the chocolates feel soft when touched with a wooden spoon. Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and quickly (and carefully) press an M&M into the center of each Kiss. Allow the treats to cool for a few minutes, then place them in the refrigerator to set, about 10 minutes. Serve to guests while wearing your ugliest Christmas sweater vest.
