My 3 ingredient Christmas Pretzel Treats are exactly what you should make when you’re hard-pressed for time
but really want to give your friends, neighbors, child’s teachers, or the mailman a home-baked Christmas treat!
You know how there’s that one recipe that is made on repeat, every year when the holidays roll around?
Christmas Pretzels is one of those recipes!
Last night we had a friend visit our home for the first time and with it being the Christmas season, I really wanted to send her home with a Christmas plate laden with home-baked treats.
But when she called fifteen minutes before setting foot into our home, I knew I needed to find something quick and easy to make.
Cue the choral music in the background:
This easy Christmas treats recipe-
3 ingredient Pretzel Christmas Treats!
Some people even call these Pretzel Christmas Cookies.
What you need to make Christmas Pretzel Treats
All you need are:
- Pretzels (Mini Twists or Squares)
- Rolos or Hershey’s kisses, and
- Christmas color M&Ms (Red and Green M&Ms).
Easy 3 ingredient Christmas Treats recipe
- 20 pretzel twists, squares. Try and find pretty, if possible, Christmas themed, pretzels
- 20 Caramel Rolos OR Hershey's Kisses (I love doing the Almond ones or even the Candy Cane ones)
- 20 Christmas M&Ms Red and Green colored M&Ms
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit
Arrange the pretzels on a baking tray lined with parchment paper
Place a Rolo/Hershey's Kiss in the center, on top of each pretzel
Once done, pop the tray in the oven for 3-5 minutes (As soon as you see the Rolos/Kisses beginning to melt, pull the tray out of the oven)
Remove and quickly but gently place a red/green M&M on each softened Rolo/Hershey's Kiss
Set aside to cool (Or to hurry the process, pop into the refrigerator for about 15-20 minutes)
And voila, your Christmas Pretzel Treats are ready!
Now that you have your treats ready to gift, consider some festive packaging options?
Add these printable Christmas tags and gift these to your neighbor next door,
or make a Christmas treats assortment to share at a Christmas treats exchange.
