Chocolate covered M&M pretzels

Mmmmm, just in time for Valentine's Day....chocolate covered pretzels with M&M's!

This is a delicious, super easy recipe, that I got from my cousin Andrea. I love the combination of salty and sweet! My daughter and I make them to give to friends during the Holidays.  We give them out at Christmas, when M&M's comes out with their Holiday mix, containing only reds and greens. We make them for Valentine's Day, when M&M's are sold in special packages containing only red, white and pinks. Then again on Easter, when they come out with packages containing only pastels.


Salted mini pretzels

Chocolate wafers


Here's what you do

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, to make clean up a breeze (do not spray or grease).

Line salted mini pretzels along the entire cookie sheet.

Place chocolate wafers on top of pretzels (you can get them at craft stores like A.C. Moore).

Place in the oven for about 2-3 minutes, just enough time for the chocolate wafer to melt a little bit.

Remove from oven and start pressing 2 M&M's into each chocolate wafer.  I like to mix the colors up a bit to make them look prettier.

Place in fridge to cool.

Place them in decorative bags, jars or tins, or use them to decorate your cookie trays.
