Kids in the Kitchen...

I've seen this called Pretzel Turtles used with Rolo candy and a pecan on top, but this is our favorite way of making an old favorite! The kids love to get in the kitchen and do this themselves and give them to their teachers before the Christmas break!
Candy Cane Christmas Treats

30 Hershey's Candy Cane Kisses
30 Pretzels, I prefer the waffle shape
30 M-n-M's

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Arrange the pretzels in a single layer on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Place one Kiss on each pretzel. Bake for 3 minutes. While the candy is warm, press an m-n-m onto each candy covered pretzel. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

Aren't you just clever! Luv the holiday colors of this version. Well done! And how nice the kids get to participate in the cooking festivities.

Many blessings to you and yours. Wishing you the very best of the season, always, all ways.

I almost bought the peppermint kisses but I wasn't sure what I'd do with them. This would have been great!

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
