These are unlike any chocolate pretzel I have ever had before! My aunt gave me the recipe and they are wonderful.

I wasn't able to find the round pretzels either - as I saw some other reviewers note. I used the square 'waffle' kind instead and still ended up with a tasty result. Do be sure to note the fact that the kisses keep their shape when melted so don't wait for them to 'puddle' onto the pretzel. When they are shiney take them out of the oven and press the M&M into the kiss to mold it to the pretzel. I'm sure the round pretzel would be cuter, but the chocolate adhered fine to the square pretzels and tasted just as good!Read More
I did exactly what the recipe said to do...I don't know what went wrong, but after 6 minutes the kisses had never melted, only shrunken and turned a bit softer. I waited another minute or two, but then the chocolate started to burn. Sigh...Read More

Let me put it this way: I made a batch, tasted one while still warm, then immediately knew I'd need to make another batch. By the time the second batch was done, the first batch was almost half gone! These are awesome and addictive!! I heated the kisses for 2 minutes on top of waffle pretzels, and they smooshed perfectly. It's also neat that you can easily scale this to however many treats you want to make.
Very easy. Great for kids to help. You can find round pretzels online. I put pretzels on parchment paper otherwise they stick to pan (learned the hard way!). I bake for 2 min at 275 degrees. Take out of oven and gently wiggle pan to help chocolate "stick" to pretzel and flatten out. I add M&M then refrigerate for about 30 minutes to harden. Remove from pan and keep refrigerated (helps keep chocolate from turning white on top).
I was pleasantly surprised at the way these turned out. I read all the reviews before I made them and everything went smoothly. We tried several different flavors of Kisses and the ones that looked the best were the Peanut Butter Kiss and the Hugs. The only other suggestion I have is to use a wide straw to press the M&M into the Kiss. It keeps your fingers out of the chocolate and helps to give them all a neat and uniform look.
I made these with rolos and put pecan halves on them like someone suggested and they were excellent. I ended up making over 100 of them because they were gone in a day. So easy and they will be at every party I have from now on. Thanks for the great ideas.
This recipe really takes care of a chocolate fix quickly and simply.My six year old niece helped out and was thrilled with her results. Following the same directions,another fun treat is to place a Rollo on each pretzel rather than a candy kiss. When removed from the oven, press a pecan half into the warm Rollo. Yummy and looks like you worked all day on them.
On my first batch I left them in too because I'm a dope and I thought 1-2 minutes can't be long enough. Well, they burnt. I got it right the second time and they are wonderful. I used Reese's pieces for the top. Very easy...my daughter loved to help with this. Thank you for sharing. :)

YUM and so easy ... these were a huge hit with my husband's work. I used dark chocolate kisses & tried pecans as well as M&M's. I also followed the same recipes with Rolo's and pecans ~ so good! Definitely a keeper.
This recipe was really easy and quick. I used unsalted knotted pretzels. I used Hershey's Hugs instead of kisses, and they looked beautiful. Since I made these for holiday gifts, I also used the holiday red and green M&M's. They turned out beautifully and everyone loved them. Very yummy!
These are REALLY good and very easy to make. We had a get together last night and everyone loved them. Nice change from the traditional chocolate covered pretzel and much easier to do. I used the knotted pretzels (three holes) and an oven temperature of about 250 to ensure that the chocolate didn't burn. At 250 the chocolate was ready in about 4 minutes. After taking out of the oven, I used two M&M's on top of each pretzel because I just love the taste of chocolate. Also I drizzled melted semi-sweet chocolate chips over each to create an even better treat. To make the drizzle, just melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips with about 1 - 2 tsp butter flavored crisco in small saucepan on very low heat.
These are the best! I have been making them for years. We call them "Bellybuttons". My favorite combos are kisses with peanut m&m's, and rolos with pecan halves. Almond m&m's are good too. I always use Snaps, the square pretzels. I think the temp is too high for this. I do a couple minutes at 250 degrees and that works well. Wait a minute or two before squishing on the tops to give the inside a chance to get soft. If the outsides crack, you are heating them for too long. As you squish the candy down, the chocolate should go into the pretzel some. It takes a batch or two to get the hang of this so they look pretty. Either way, these are never around long!
We make these every year at christmas time. We use Mini pretzel twists and rolos instead of kisses, and cook at 350 for 2 minutes. We position the rolo on the bottom circle so that it looks like a reindeer with two pretel loop ears, rolo nose, and we use red m&ms for "rudolph nose" If you liked these with kisses, try the rolo, they are even better! These are a big hit!
Hershey kisses do not soften because they changed their chocolate ingredients. I used the Hershey creams and it worked much better. Also, if you are lucky, you can find butter pretzels that are in the shape of trees.
I've been making these for years so wanted to add my tips. First of all, I bake for 3 minutes at 250 degrees which is perfect. (Don't go over 4 minutes though - it will burn.) Secondly, the small twist pretzels work the best in my experience. The problem with the round pretzels is that even if you're very careful about pressing the M&M down well enough to make the chocolate from the Kiss spread, it doesn't always spread enough-especially if younger children are the ones doing it. You then end up with some pretzels seperateing from the chocolate center quite easily. At least with the small twists or the waffle shapes, the chocolate has enough pretzel to attach to with no effort at all. My third tip is to make sure you line your baking sheet with either aluminum foil or parchment paper. These are easy and a great way to get your holiday sweet 'n salty fix. It's a perfect activity for children too. My kids have been helping me since they were in preschool. They do all the unwrapping, and placement of the pretzels and candies, and I do all the oven work.
I make these every Christmas. I think the 350* oven is a bit high. I preheat to 275* and put them in for about 2 minutes. I also use a Brach's "star" chocolate candy instead of unwrapping all of the kisses. Simple, good, and everyone loves these sweet and salty delights!!
This recipe is one of my favorites for finger food desserts. ONE THING YOU NEED TO KNOW: the kisses and hugs don't actually melt all the way and get gooey. They just get soft and stick to the pretzel. By adding the little M&M, you press it down to stay better. But after it's cooled, it looks like a pretzel with a kiss on top, but the kiss won't fall off when you pick it up to eat it! Hope that helps all those who wait for the kiss to "melt".
Very easy, but has anyone else had problems w/ the chocolate "blooming"?? I keep getting white spots on the chocolates. They make wonderful gifts, but every batch I make keeps getting spots on them. I've tried letting them cool to room temp, then placing in fridge. Or placing them in the fridge after 15 mins after the over. But those darn spots keep coming back!! Please help!!
Quick, easy and NO MESS. I just made a little less than 400 of these and you would NOT know to look at my kitchen. They look beautiful and taste even better. I consider this recipe my present from Allrecipes this year.
I have used this recipe quite a few times. For those who expect the kisses to melt down, they often do not. They do soften, and the act of pushing the candy in the middle pushes them down. At halloween time I put candy corn or the holiday colored m&m candies. I have put gum drops, jelly beans, nuts etc. depending on the time of year I made them. They are always a hit. And by the way, I make them on the small pretzel twists and they are delicious. Salted is better tasting than non salted because you get that great sweet/salty taste. This is so easy!
Awesome! My husband loved these and I can't wait to share them over the holidays. I made 4 types: Regular chocolate kisses with regular M&Ms; Regular chocolate kisses with Reese's pieces; Peppermint ("Candy Cane") Hershey's kisses with a regular M&M, and Hershey's Hugs Kisses with regular M&Ms. The Candy Cane kisses and the Hugs turned out the prettiest, and I thought they tasted the best too! For anyone who has a Meijer in their area, they sell the round pretzels under their store brand.
So Easy! My 9 year old took these to his class Christmast pary at school. None came back home. Use pastel colors for a spring party too. They keep well in the refrigerator if you need to store them, but the chocolate does begin to turn white.
we made these even simpler, with a tip from my daughter in law. use the candy discs Wilton sells for melting. they are just as good, and you don't have to unwrap 100 kisses! thanks jill!
Quick and easy! The HUGS seem to melt faster than the other types of kisses, so may wish to put those in for 1 minute only. The rest of the kisses did well at 90 seconds.
These are so easy and so tasty. Only bake for about 1 to 2 minutes or else the chocolate will burn. I made this mistake because the kisses did not appear to be melting, but they were! Oooops!
tasty good, nice flavor combo. Used red/green morsels instead of m&m's on the top.
this recipie did not work at all. Me and a friend tryed to make this but the kisses wouldnt melt! They started smoking and set off my smoke detector. I was very dissapointed. Also, i couldn't find cirrcular pretzels anywhere...
Great recipe and fun to make with my 4 year old! We used an entire bag of round pretzels, which was 2 full cookie sheets worth. That took a little over a bag and a half (13 ounce bags) of Kisses or Hugs. We used both and next time I will only use the Hugs-- they looked much cuter and they melted better in the oven (even though I generally prefer Kisses based on taste alone).
Yum! and so simple to make! I made close to 200 to put in tins as a holiday treat (with shortbread cookies and loose kisses and M&M's) for friends/neighbors and family I used milk, dark and hugs, though next time I will only use hugs or dark kisses, the milk chocolate doesn't melt quite as nice as those two.
Second year I've made these, always a hit with the combo of salty and sweet. Being in Chicagoland I've found a local brand makes the rings (Jay's), and I've also found the holiday mint kisses melt better. I top them with the holiday mint M&M's for even more mint (I LOVE mint). I find giving a twist to the pretzel ring after I smoosh the M&M into the kiss helps the chocolate adhere. Also, the chocolate will bloom (get cloudy) after a few days so if you are making them for a party don't make them too far in advance.
For some reason the chocolate does not melt sometimes. Any ideas why? I had 1 batch that did & the next from the same bag of candy not melt at all and just crumble when I put the m&m on. This si the second time this happened??? When they come out right, they are great.
These were so easy and fun for my 6 year old to help with! Much easier and less messy than regular chocolate covered pretzels. I'm glad I read the reviews about the kiss not melting - perhaps someone should change the wording in the actual recipe to make that clearer. I used the waffle pretzels and Easter m&m's and they turned out adorable! They looked like little nests. I'll be using this recipe again and again.
They tasted really good, but I had a huge problem getting the chocolate to stick to the pretzel. Even though it melted into the holes in the pretzel they fell off when they were dry. They were festive though, and tastey.
Why have I never heard of doing this before? It combines my 3 favorite things! I used PB M&M's....yum.
My kids and I made this together. We made two different kinds--one with little Reese's and peanut butter M&M's and one with Rolo candies and milk chocolate M&M's. These were inexpensive to make and huge fun for the kids and I, nevermind really freaking tasty. We just had a blast making these. I can already see this making an appearance on our cookie trays this Christmas season.
Very cute, easy, turned out great. Thanks to the other person who suggested using a straw to push on the m&m's. Do not use caramel kisses. When you push down the m&m the caramel squirts out and makes them look all messy. The reg. kisses worked fine.
Today was the first time I made these, I have already had to make a second batch, they are so easy, and do delicious. Thank you, this is a real keeper!!!!!!!!!!!
I used Peanut Butter Kisses on square pretzels. After reading the reviews I was not expecting the Kisses to actually melt (everyone was saying they retain their shape). Well, I put them in the oven on 350, for 1.5 minutes, and they definitely melted down! Perhaps my oven is a bit hotter than most (it's new), or maybe it's b/c they're PB Kisses. Just keep in mind that it is possible for them to melt down in certain circumstances. I actually preferred this, though, as the kiss covered most of the pretzels and adhered nicely to them. I only had to drop the M&M on, didn't have to smush at all. Just make sure to use parchment paper on the cookie sheet as the chocolate WILL seep through if they do melt down. I set mine in the freezer and that part took a lot less time. Absolutely delicious! I am giving them as gifts this Christmas but I wish I could eat them all myself! Don't make these while you're hungry!
These were okay. Yes, like other members stated, the kisses retain their shape. I used the round waffle pretzels and regular chocolate Kisses and the striped Hugs with red and green M&M'S. The hugs looked nicer. My problem with this recipe is that I would prefer a better ratio of chocolate-to-pretzel. My husband and I agree that it's a good idea but if I made them again I'd not use M&M'S and maybe just take another pretzel and make a sandwich. They look cute, but taste- wise I'd modify the recipe. I made small twist pretzels dipped and drizzled in different chocolates and some were sprinkled with Christmas sprinkles. I made these right after this recipe and I'd rather take the effort to make the twists. If I had children I'd make this recipe again as-is, though. Thanks You for it, though. I'm newly married and trying to improve my cooking skills. Practice makes me... better!
I made these for a United Way bake sale at work. They went quickly and everyone loved them. The first batch were in the oven for 1:30mins and they were too soft and the second batch was in for 1mins and were much firmer. I'm making them again for a party tonight and I'm going to try 1:15mins. I can't wait!
I made this last night. It's very easy, but being in the South, I had too many size and shape pretzels to choose from. Both big and mini round: thick & thin, waffle, stick. I wasn't sure which was the best to use. I chose the larger, medium thickness. The kiss melted in the center, but I prefer chocolate on more of the pretzel. I did do as previous reviewers suggested and pushed down the kiss with the M&M. They are tasty and look cute, but I'm not real pleased with a "glob" of chocolate all in the center. JMO.... Addie
I actually prefer these with the vanilla melting wafers (from the craft store). Very easy and delicious but I did learn the hard way, don't use the butter pretzels (not a good flavor combo)!
Very easy and delicious. Be careful to not try to make too many more at one time, the kisses will cool before you can get to them all and make it more difficult to press in the M&M. Better to do 2 smaller batches.
My youngest son loves these. I didn't like the round pretzels (the chocolate fell through when cooled), so I use the small twisted pretzels (three holes). I place the Hershey's on top of the twist and then put MINT M&M's on top. That way the pretzel and chocolate becomes "one". These are sooooo easy and he loves to smoosh the chocolate down with the M&M!
Tried making these at various temps/times and could not get a good fit. Despite that these looked beautiful for two days and then turned white due to fat bloom.
We call these belly buttons! My children love these!!
For Different Kisses - if you're mixing it up and using both traditional chocolate kisses and vanilla/swirl kisses, watch the timing - vanilla kisses cook quicker so take a minute off the cooking time. A wonderful versatile recipe. Yummy, easy, pretty and well received - great to give as little thank you gifts to teachers, friends & neighbors.
SO good and easy! Instead of putting an m&m on top of the kiss, I gently place a second pretzel over the kiss and carefully press down to lightly smoosh the kiss between the two pretzels. The end result => a kiss and pretzel sandwich. No one believes me that something this tasty is just that easy.
These were so Easy and yummy. We used milk chocolate kisses and topped the with Reeces Pieces. Salty Pretzles, chocolate, and peanutbutter... what more can you ask for. I cooked for 3 minutes at 250 degrees.
I used Hershey's hugs and Holiday Red and Green M&Ms to give them a more festive look. Everyone at the office just loved them!
I'd love to try this recipe but I can't find round pretzels anywhere!! Any suggestions?
Love these. They are SO easy and cute. We use Rollo candy instead of candy kisses.
The temperature for this recipe was too high. I lost a whole tray when the chocolate burned, but wouldn't melt! Tried again with temp at 175, and everything turned out fine.
i thought these were great! for christmas i usually melt chocolate in a double boiler & dip pretzels... but this is much easier & faster (and less messy). i think i might have found a new tradition! thanks!
Used the mini kisses for these (because they were already unwrapped!) Still had enough chocolate taste. Very easy!
This is a very good recipe when you want something quick and easy. I used a variety of flavors of kisses and my daughter loved all of them them.
I've made these lots of times. This halloween I thought I'd try a candy corn on top. Check out my picture.
Made these at Christmas for favors for people. I used regular sized peanut butter M&Ms instead of the minis for an additional taste. Yummy and fun!
Couldn't find circular pretzels so I used square ones. I heated these up at 300 for 2 minutes and it was perfect, for me. Kids can be a big help in making these. They're so easy and quite good, too!
These are really easy and they taste great!
I just ran across this recipe - I have been making this snack treat at Christmas for years. However, I use Mint M&M's on top of Hugs Kisses. These are really good! I have made with regular Kisses and M&M's as well, but Hugs melt really well in the oven. I have nicknamed these "paw prints" because if you use regular bite size pretzels, they leave "paw prints" when you take them off of the cookie sheets.
Soooo good!! I topped them with reeses pieces instead of m&ms.
This is a favorite at my house! And every time I give them as gifts, people rave about them. My 3 year old will sit & unwrap all the chocolate kisses for me (usually without eating too many)! The secret is not to bake more than 2 minutes. The Kisses don't really melt or lose shape in the oven, they just become soft so that they collapse when you put the M&M on top. I use the square waffle pretzels, because I can't find the round ones. Also, I tried using the caramel Kisses and they were so fabulous (although slightly messier)! You can use the peanut M&M with the caramel Kisses to make a chocolate "turtle" pretzel! But, my family prefers the basic recipe so I usually stick to that!
We followed the recipe using milk chocolate Kisses and these were not edible. The chocolate burned before it ever got soft enough to press in the M&Ms. 350 is much too high a temperature. I hope that the original poster considers updating this recipe. Looks like this temp might work for hugs, but not for milk chocolate kisses.
Incredibly easy and delicious. I used Snyder's Snaps and Hershey's Hugs, and holiday colored M&M's.
I wonder if anybody else had the problem I had. My Hershey kisses wouldn't melt properly and when I tried to put the m&m into it, it cracked rather than collapse smoothly. They were tasty, but not as pretty as I hoped.
Made these twice over the Christmas season. Big hit. Made them with both Kisses and Hugs (I think the Hugs taste better) but the Hugs melt quicker than the kisses. Used regular sized M&Ms and waffle pretzels.
easy to whip up, great presentation to add to a holiday tray, and the possibilities are endless with combinations of chocolates and garnish. I used rolo candies and topped with a holiday peanut M&M. 350 oven was fine, no muss no fuss. Rule of thumb is that you'll know when they are soft enough when the top of the chocolate becomes shiny. It will still be holding its shape and look unmelted but as long as the tops are shiny, they're ready to take out.
Very good! A good combination of flavors!! Thanks!
amazing with dark chocolate kisses and dark chocolate M&Ms!!
Super tasty and embarrassingly easy! I made half with chocolate and m&m's and half with Milk Duds and M&M's. The Milk Duds were zomg awesome! But, I strongly suggest you use parchment to keep removal and clean up easy.
Easy. Tasty. I used "Snaps" hugs, kisses, and Rollo's. I baked 2.5-3 minutes at 250. I found that if they sit for a minute they melt just enough, but move fast or they'll cool before you're done, especially the Rollo's.
These were very popular in my house today!! I made mine with a combo of regular kisses and cherry kisses. I also used peanut M & M's. These were sweet and salty. Really tasty snack!! Thanks Mel!
Very Good, easy to make. If you are a first timer (as I was) the chocolate kisses hold their shape even when melted. So 2 minutes is really all you need even though they don't look melted, they are. Use the candies to push the chocolate down. I also used mini twists as I couldn't find circular pretzles. Worked great!
These are easy and very tasty. Try them with Rolo candy instead of the candy kiss. They are great!
These are a new family favorite, but we are using the Hershey's "HUGS" kisses, which are the striped white and milk chocolate. They look really neat, and you get the taste of both chocolates in the pretzel!
Made for a party and they were a big hit.
Very easy and suprisingly tasty. I was a ble to find doung pretzels, they are by Rold Gold and called Checkers. I use Brach's stars instead of the kisses. I don't think that I would have had to press the m&m hard into the star to make it stick to the pretzel like I did which squished it. next time I will just place it on there and it will look nicer. Next time is tomorrow because I have eaten way, way too many! I baked at 250 for about 4-5 minutes.
Good and easy. I think it would be better with rolos instead of kisses though.
My Hugs absolutely would not melt. I tried all different temperatures, broiling, microwaving, and nothing would melt these. They would melt on the inside but the outsides would just burn. I know it can be done because I had these at a school picnic. I'll try again one day ... Tried again with success! Another reviewer noted that the hug keeps it's shape even though it IS melted. VERY CUTE!!
I opted to make these for my son's school holiday party because I figured they would be easier and less time consuming than baking cookies. But I think I should have stuck to cookies. I, like many others was disappointed to find no round pretzels in store after store (did not have time to order online). I was delighted to finally find round butter waffle ones at last. I started out with a mixed batch of milk and dark. The dark turned out beautifully but the milk seemed to not be soft enough so I put them back in and, like other reviewers, burnt them. I tried another batch of milk by themselves but no matter how long I left them in the end result was ugly (compared to the dark). The end result was a pretty big mess in my kitchen (something I was hoping I would avoid with this seemingly quick and easy recipe) and some pretty and yummy dark chocolate buttons. To do it again I would order the round pretzels online and only use dark chocolate kisses.
The trick to these is not to bake them too long! A minute was perfect for mine. If you overbake, the kisses will sieze up and be ruined. Remember that the kisses will maintain their shape, so don't look for them to melt down. You'll smush them down with the m&m's as soon as they come out of the oven. I mass produced these last year to put in Christmas baggies for my daughter's classroom - what a hit!
I finally had time to try out this recipe for my family. I didn't have M&M's or anything that might work to add to the top of each melted chocolate. So...I added another "waffle" pretzel to the top of each melted chocolate to make chocolate pretzel sandwiches! They were a big hit with everyone who tried them! I made half with Rolo's and half with milk chocolate Hershey's Kisses.
I've had this recipe before, but we used peanut butter M&Ms instead of plain ones and Hugs (white chocolate) instead of Kisses. They're AMAZING and everyone always wants more.
A very simple treat to bring to a party. This is a big hit everywhere I go!!
I looooove this idea. You can knock out a huge amount of these in a very short time and they make great gifts. I don't like too much chocolate though so instead of m&ms I pressed another pretzel on top. I used the snaps. Next time I will purchase a better quality chocolate instead of hersheys.
These were wonderful and so easy to make! I used the tiny twist pretzels and they worked beautifully. I also made two batches-one with plain kisses and plain m&ms; the other with caramel kisses and peanut M&Ms. With the caramel kisses they do not need to be in the oven quite as long. And be careful when pressing down so that all of the caramel doesn't run out.
I like to use rollos and top with a pecan half. It's a party favorite.
I've been making these for years and they're always a huge hit. I like using the "snap" square pretzels, they travel better in containers and look great. I've also used rolo carmel candies for variety. (use 2 colors for kisses & 2 other colors for rolos so people know which is which).
Huge hit @ Xmas! Used square pretzels because that's what I could find. Turned out super cute! I used 1/2 kisses and 1/2 hugs.
I was skeptical of a recipe involving hard, dry salty pretzels with smooth, sweet chocolate, but I decided to try this one anyway because they looked interesting in the picture. My, those little M&M's on top are as cute as a button - providing you can get your chocolate kisses to melt before they burn and before the pretzels turn even harder. In the end, I can't decide which was worse - the burning, fuming chocolates, or the underlying, overbaked pretzels. I'm certain that the oven temperature recommended in this recipe is WAY off. My oven smoked up so badly I could no longer see them through the door, and when I opened it, the smoke that billowed out set off the smoke alarm, alerting the neighbors. What an embarrassing debacle (not to mention waste of money). I should have trusted my initial instinct and made something else.
I love these things. Only things I do different is, Use the circle pretzels, hersey hugs and top with green or red m&m. Makes them look like buttons. Kids love to make them
So easy and delicious. I tried these recently at a bake sale and they were made with the little green and red chocolate discs. Although pretty to look at, they don't have enough chocolate flavor like the candy kisses. I would stick with those unless you know someone who makes an awesome melting chocolate disc. I have yet to find one myself. I topped them with green and red M & M's. (Try to put the printed M down). I found that 2 bags of Kisses covered nearly 1 bag of pretzels and about 3/4 of a bag of plain M & M's. Great gift to give to friends in little tins. HINT: If you are making as many as I did, get some to help, it seems to take forever to get the foil off the Kisses!
I used dark chocolate kisses and also peppermint kisses. Both were good: the perfect mix of sweet and salty. This is not your usual chocolate-covered pretzel because the pretzel is not covered in chocolate, (therefore, not as a chocolatey as I like), but it sure looks cute!
Wow, this really did take just 2 mins in the oven! I was looking for a simple treat to make for my office -- I went with mini-pretzels, Ghirardelli semisweet morsels (like mini-Kisses, but cheaper), and mini-m&m's I had around -- perfect V-day treats (the chocolate covers the middle, so it looks like a heart with a chocolate center). Great, quick treat!!
Another holiday treat to make with your kids. Super fun and super easy. Be careful on the time in the oven as one batch of mine I didn't watch closely enough got super hard. However. I'll be making these every year. This was fun and tasty and the kids really enjoyed having them.
The chocolate didn't melt it just dried out and burned on the top. This was a waste of time and money.
Don't leave these in the oven too long, or you'll waste a perfectly good bag of Chocolate Kisses! :( I learned the hard way!! Round Pretzels are available from Ballreich's Chips.
