Make ahead Holiday Treats

I love the idea of bringing a little something to share with a hostess at holiday time.  I also love sending small treats to friends and family during the holiday season.  These holiday chocolates and pretzels are  a wonderful small something to share.  Depending on the holiday, I vary the M&M colors.  I use red for valentine’s, orange for Halloween and red and green for Christmas.  I make ahead holiday treats to save time and energy plus add the joy of the season to my home with sharing easy, simple and fun small bites.  Enjoy these treats and a sweet holiday season!

Chocolate Pretzels



  • 24 square pretzels
  • 24 chocolate kisses (milk or semisweet)
  • 24 M&Ms


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  1. Place pretzels on baking sheets. Unwrap candy kisses and place one in the center of each pretzel.
  2. Place in preheated oven 1 to 2 minutes, until kisses melt. Remove from oven and place one candy-coated chocolate in the center of each pretzel. Chill in refrigerator until set.

Just a smidge of chocolate and a salty pretzel base.  Easy to make and share for any holiday!  Wishing you a joyful holiday season!
