I feel like I'm the last person to catch on to this idea, but I did try it for a little gathering a few weeks ago and was very happy with the result. There are so many fun flavors of Kisses now that I'd like to keep trying different combinations.
Smallish Pretzels, preferrably window shaped
Assorted Hershey's kisses and hugs - We used mint truffle
Plain M&M's - in appropriately festive colors
1. Preheat your oven to 170. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and toss down as many pretzels as you want/will fit in a single layer... No overlapping. Place a chocolate kiss or hug in the middle of each pretzel (window shaped pretzels work best, but regular pretzel shaped pretzels work too.)
2. Bake in the oven for 4 -6 minutes until the chocolate is soft. Remove from oven a press an M&M in to the top of each kiss. Let sit for a minute or two and then put the cookie sheet in the fridge and allow them to set completely.
3. Toss into a cute bowl on the counter for your next party. Or while you're folding laundry. Or wrapping presents.
*You can sub the kisses for Rolo's and the M&M's for pecans for something more like a turtle.
