Quick and Easy Treat

I got this recipe from my friend and thought it was so perfect for the holidays, I had to share it.
You will need:
mini pretzels
Hershey chocolate kisses
M&M candies
Rolo candies
pecan halves

For the chocolate pretzel candy, place pretzels on a greased cookie sheet or one lined with parchment paper. Place a chocolate kiss in the middle of each pretzel. Bake at 275 degrees for 2 to 3 minutes until the chocolate is soft. Remove from oven and press an M&M down to spread the chocolate into the spaces. Let them rest for a few minutes and then refrigerate until the chocolate is firm again.
For the Pecan caramel candy, place the pretzels onto foil or parchment lined cookie sheets. Place a Rolo candy in the middle. Bake at 250 degrees for 4 minutes (they will keep their shape) and then press the pecan into the softened candy. Cool for a few minutes, then refrigerate for at least 10 minutes until firm again.

It's a perfect recipe if you have children who want to help, since they can easily place the M&Ms or nuts into the softened chocolates. The candies make a nice display or a attractive gift plate for a hostess.
