Ok - I'm not much of a cook... BUT, if you need a"Last-Minute-No-Mess-Even-Your-Kids-Can-Make-Them" Cookie recipe , I'm here for you!
Here you go:
Heat oven to 200 degrees (not hotter, did you know you can actually burn chocolate kisses? Don't ask how I know this...)
Place a sheet of parchment paper on a cookie sheet
Have your child lay out a layer of pretzels (we like the holiday shape ones from Sam's Club)
Put a chocolate kiss on each pretzel (you can use Hugs too, for a stripey look)
Heat for 4 min.
Firmly press an M & M into each kiss
PLUS A BONUS Recipe for you (these are highly addicting, make with caution & self-control, or give away immediately!):
THIS YEAR we went wild, we melted Rolo candies (follow the same recipe as above) and pressed in a pecan. Presto - we had "turtle treats"!
We can really mass produce these treats around here, good thing too - we eat as many as we make!
It was so much fun that we made 33 (YES!) gift boxes for my hubby's co-workers in just a short time.
I picked up these adorable treat boxes at Christmas clearance last year (75% off!) So, we put a couple of our treats in a cute baggie, added a candy cane, some hot chocolate, and some more candy for color - and we had an adorable treat. Looks like we spent hours - but, we didn't!
Best part - just throw away the parchment paper, and clean up is done too!
