Belly Button M&M Pretzel Kisses
These Belly Button M&M Pretzel Kisses are the perfect combination of sweet and salty. The creamy chocolate with the crunch of the pretzel…I might have to make more of these right now! They are so dang good. They come together so quickly and they are easy enough that your kids can help you make them! Have them put the kisses onto the pretzels before they go in the oven, then let them press the M&Ms onto the chocolate once they are out of the oven. Make sure you let them cool completely before you serve them or package them up as gifts…otherwise you will have a chocolatey mess on your hands!
Switch Things Up for Different Holidays and Events
You can customize your Belly Button M&M Pretzel Kisses any way you’d like! I love getting different colors of M&Ms and other types of kisses/hugs for different events and holidays. The Christmas M&M’s look so festive and cute and you can use the candy cane kisses! The pastel M&Ms that you can get around Easter time work great for bridal showers and baby showers. You can use pumpkin spice kisses and the Autumn colored M&Ms for Fall as well! If you want to get really creative you can switch up the M&M flavors as well – like using dark chocolate mint M&Ms with the mint truffle kisses – the possibilities are endless! You can also use different shapes of pretzel, like the grid squares or the open circles. One commenter suggested using rolo candies instead of the kiss, and pressing a pecan into it – making it like a turtle! You really can play with this recipe and make it your own.
Give Belly Button M&M Pretzel Kisses as a Gift!
Pretzel kisses make great gifts! You can make them in a large batch and then package them in individual baggies as a small gift or treat for friends and neighbors. I like using the small cellophane bags – you can even find them at the dollar store sometimes – and then tying it off with a colorful ribbon! It looks classy but it takes literally seconds. Use some of the different flavor ideas mentioned previously and make baby shower or bridal shower favors, gifts for your kid’s classes at school, Christmas neighbor gifts, birthday party treats, movie night snacks, or just treats in your kid’s lunchboxes.
