The Mint Candies Will Be Gone Soon, Mint Pretzel KISSES

We’ve all seen them, probably even eaten a few — pretzels with melted candies gently pressed into their salty crevices. With all the different flavors people have created, I still go back to my favorite that my mom started making a few years ago. She uses Mint M&M’s candies. They’re the white, green, and red milk chocolate candies that have only been available around the Christmas holiday. So stock up, because they will be hard to find soon.

Extra KISSES? Bake peanut butter blossoms:

  • Peanut butter cookie mix and ingredients to make them
  • Creamy peanut butter
  • HERSHEY’s Milk Chocolate KISSES candy

A few fun recipes I’ve seen for different pretzel snacks are Rolo Pretzel Turtles from Steamy Kitchen, Rolo Pretzels with Pretzel M&M’s from Two Peas and Their Pod, Candy Cane Pretzel Kisses from Cookies and Cups and Peanut Butter M&M Pretzel Kisses from Simply Scratch.

Sweet wishes,


Mint M&M’s Pretzel KISSES

  • mini pretzel twists or squares
  • HERSHEY's Milk Chocolate Kisses
  • Mint M&M's chocolate candies


  • Preheat the oven to 200°F.
  • Place pretzels in a single layer on a cookie sheet. (The number of HERSHEY’s Kisses you have determines how many pretzels you need.)
  • Unwrap the Kisses and place one in the center of each pretzel.
  • Bake in the oven for 2-1/2 to 3 minutes. The Kiss will not look melted. Remove the pan from the oven.
  • Immediately and gently push one mint M&M into each melted Kiss. Let cool completely before storing in an airtight container.


If you haven’t made these before, here’s a tip. If you don’t bake these long enough, the Kiss will be melted only on the top half, so when you try to push the M&M into it, it won’t really stick well.
On the other hand, if you bake these too long, the chocolate will melt and turn hard again. When that happens, there’s no going back. You can’t reheat them to fix it. My suggestion, bake at 2-1/2 minutes and then remove the pan and try an M&M. If it works right away, great, you are done. If it seems to only push down halfway, stick in the oven for another 30 seconds. Check again. It only takes a few seconds too long to overbake.

  1. The version my sister and I make uses Rolos in place of the kisses- I’ll have to try these with mint M&M’s. You’re right!! They only last for a minute and there is nothing more awesome than minty chocolate at Christmas.

    1. I haven’t tried the ones with Rolos but I think my sister makes them that way. 🙂 Gotta love mint and chocolate – must be why my favorite Starbucks drink is a peppermint mocha. Have a great week, Heather! Staci
