  • 25 holiday M&M candies


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Do not preheat using convection settings.**

  2. Line a tray with parchment paper and place the pretzels on the tray.
  3. Unwrap the hugs/kisses/rolos and place on top of the pretzels.

  4. Bake for 3-4 minutes or until the hugs/kisses/rolos are soft but not melted.

  5. Press an M&M candy into the center of the hugs/kisses/rolos right out of the oven.

  6. Allow the chocolate to harden.

Recipe Notes

*I tried out caramel kisses for these and they didn't work -- caramel oozed out everywhere. Stick to solid chocolate kisses. **I've had a few people report issues with the kisses crumbling; this means the oven was too hot or the chocolate was baked too long. I would recommend trying 1 rudolph nose at first to test. If it crumbles, reduce the baking time for the rest. Do not use convection oven settings.
