Happy Valentines Day!

Pin It February 14. The day of loooove. And CANDY! Yeah! So I saw this idea on Pinterest (duh), and I decided I haaad to make them for the Valentine Party we are having at my preschool.

The girls over at G Rated used the white chocolate kisses with the stripes... But I couldn't find any for some reason, so I used these cookies and cream kisses.

What you need:
Hershey Kisses of your choice
M&M's (I used the holiday specific ones for this, but you could obviously tailor this for any occasion)
Square Pretzels
Parchment Paper

Now, preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with the parchment paper and place the pretzels on the paper. Now comes the super tedious part: Unwrapping all the kisses. This is what takes the majority of the time for this little recipe.

Once the kisses are on all of the pretzels, pop them in the oven. Keep your eye on them the whole time, because it will only take 2 or 3 minutes to get them 'waxy'. Once they start looking "shiny" or "sweaty", if you will, they're just about ready. I gave them another 30 seconds to a minute, and then pulled them out right before they got melty.

Now place an M&M, with the logo facing down, in the middle of the kiss and gently press it down.

Boom. You're done. Now you just gotta let them dry, and then they're off into the tupperware or cute candy dish for display.

A super cute little treat for a party or to put around your house!

I hope you all have a GREAT Valentines Day, and eat LOTS of candy!!!
