Pretzel Candy Kisses

That was the small token left for Mark this morning when I took a plateful of these to school for our chocolate fest.  Lo and behold the chocolate fest is tomorrow.  Oh well, the plate was empty by the end of lunch today.  I wanted to make these Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites, but ran out of time and needed something quick and easy.  

Pretzel Candy Kisses


1 1 pound bag of waffle pretzels, butter flavor are really tasty
1 bag of Hershey's dark chocolate kisses

1.  Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
2.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper of a silpat mat.
3.  Spread pretzels on cookie sheet leaving about 1/4 inch between them.
4.  Top each pretzel with an unwrapped kiss.
5.  Carefully place a second pretzel on top of the chocolate.  If it's not quite soft enough, pop back in oven for a few seconds.
6.  Chill for 30 minutes.
7.  Store in air tight container in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

I buy 2 bags of pretzels to allow for breakage.
