You can really make these for any occasion. Just use whatever color M&Ms work for the holiday! But aren’t they fun for Mardi Gras?

Serve them as a snack at your child’s classroom party, or put a handful in a cellophane bag and tie it off with a pretty ribbon for a fun teacher gift or party favors.

They’re super easy to make. Even the kids can help. You just need mini pretzels (we love Glutino Pretzel Twists), a bag of Hershey Kisses and a bag of M&Ms.

Then you line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, place the pretzels in a single layer and top each pretzel with a Hershey Kiss. Pop them in the oven for about 3 minutes at 300 degrees. Then while the Hershey Kisses are still soft, top each one with an M&M. Let them cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

How fun is that!??
