yes...we've all seen these little morsels before.
they're simple & easy.
but sometimes we forget about the simple things...
because we've already tried them.
but we NEED simple in our lives.
"simple" inspires people who are lacking the time or energy.
& sometimes all it takes is a reminder to keep things simple...
so here's your "official" reminder...
all it takes is 3 simple ingredients & a few minutes of your time...
oh so stylish...
oh so cute...
& oh so delish!
wouldn't these be PERFECT for a party incorporating zebra print?!
preheat oven to 170 degrees.
gather your ingredients.
unwrap hershey kisses.
layout the square pretzels on a cookie sheet.
place one kiss on top of each pretzel.
bake for 5-6 minutes. (until the kiss becomes shiny and soft)
remove from oven.
smoosh an m&m on top (logo side down). this "glues" all 3 layers together
let cool completely. (pop'em in the fridge for 10-15 if you like)
- valentine m&m's were hard to find even a week ago.
i found the breast cancer awareness version & favored the hot pink vs. the lighter shade.
- do NOT make these days in advance for your event/celebration. after 2 days, the 1st ones i made started cracking & turning white...making it look like "old" chocolate. (result from heating chocolate in the oven?)
- be ready to put the m&m's on right when you pull them out of the oven.
- the caramel centered kisses melted easier/faster - don't squish too hard.
have a super tuesday everyone...
Keeping It Real
I had to make these twice. The first ones sat for two days, wrapped in cellophane, waiting for me to take pictures. By then the chocolate had turned white-ish. oops!
I went to 4 stores last week trying to find the Valentine's mix of m&m's. I was getting mighty frustrated. There ended up being ONE bag left of the susan g. komen breast cancer awareness mix... in the very last store. lucky me! (so i went ahead & snatched up the st. patrick's day mix - already on display - to avoid frustration next month). *wink*
