My favorite Christmas dessert is pretzel kisses & hugs! I added a little bit of a twist to the classic recipe. Instead of using regular Hershey kisses, I used peppermint, white chocolate kisses. It is the perfect combination of sweet and salty. It is also the perfect treat to bring to a holiday gathering.
Easy Christmas Desserts
Before you get started, make sure you have the ingredients you need. You will square pretzels, peppermint Hershey kisses and Christmas colored M&Ms. You will also need parchment paper or aluminum foil to line your cookie sheet. Here is my favorite cookie sheet.
First, preheat your oven to 300°F. Then go ahead and line your cookie sheet. I swear, these are the easiest Christmas dessert ever.

Next step, line your pan with square pretzels, about ½ an inch apart. After you line your pan, unwrap your kisses and set them on top of your pretzel (make sure they are centered). PRO TIP- get your kids to unwrap the kisses for you, haha.
Go ahead and pop them in the oven at 300°F for 2-3 mins, until the kisses are slightly melted. Once they are slightly melted, grab your M&Ms. Set one M&M on top of each kiss. Then set them aside to cool.

2. Bake for 3-4 mins, until the kisses are slightly melted. The kisses should still hold their shape when you pull the out of the oven.

4. Place your kisses in the fridge for 15 mins. ENJOY!
