Pretzel, Hershey Kiss, and M&M Bites

Inspiration: I first had these little snacks a few years ago when my Mom brought some home from a friend at work who had made them. Then, I ran across them again a few weeks back  on The Cooking Photographer and was reminded of how good these little treats are. I had a family cookout coming up and decided to make these as a quick and easy snack to bring along.

What we Loved: These are just a really fun little variation on chocolate covered pretzels. I have always loved snacks like trail mixes or Chex mixes that are both salty and sweet, and that’s the reason that I love these so much. They’re not so much a dessert as a salty, chocolatey snack. Plus, they’re incredibly easy to make, and they travel well. I always love finding snacks that are easy to take along to a party.

Helpful Hints: With all of the different kinds of Hershey Kisses and M&Ms that there are now, you can use any number of different flavor combinations with these. You can also use Rolo candies instead of Hershey Kisses, like The Cooking Photographer did, and there are plenty of other little chocolates/toppings that could be used in place of the kisses or M&Ms. And of course, with M&Ms, you can always coordinate the colors for a holiday or season.
