I’d love to hear from you. Hop over to chat with me on Facebook and/or Twitter


  1. Those little treats are so easy to make, I am going to have to try this! I usually just bake a ton of cookies during the holidays, I need to switch it up a little!

  2. Those look so good. And also super easy. That will be a perfect Christmas treat to take to my familys get together. Thanks for the info.

  3. These are a favorite! We just have a problem sharing them. 😉 It’s almost as if they are made and really don’t last 24 hours in our house.

  4. I love that these are so quick to whip up! I need to make more cookies. I keep making treats and then eating them (with help, of course) instead of giving them away!

  5. Oh my…These are calling me. I hear my name….They look absolutely delicious! 🙂 Will have to try!

  6. We make these and they are super tasty! My favorite is chocolate peppermint bark because it only has two ingredients! 🙂

  7. I just might make these this week to take to my mom’s house. They look so good, and I’m going with Rolos!

  8. These are always a big hit in my house. I could devour a plate in a day without even meaning it.

  9. I made some of these the other day, half with M&Ms, and half with walnut pieces on top since my husband loves nuts. My quickest Christmas treat is probably my Rocky Road Squares – like 5 minutes to make, then they just have to cool.

  10. I have made these and they are always a big hit. They can also be changed up for different holidays by changing the colors on the M & M’s.

  11. Who doesn’t have a shortage of time right around now? The quickest treat I make are slice and bake cookies. But these pretzels treats are just as easy, homemade, and probably much better. Great idea, and thanks for sharing.
