Chocolate Pretzel Squares

Fran Miller


One of those "Why didn't I think of that?" easy-to-make treats to send in to school or bring to the office. Inexpensive, too! Who doesn't like the taste of salt & chocolate together?

The prep time includes the microwave time. Honestly, it takes the longest time just to unwrap the Hershey's Kisses. =^..^=

  • 1
    bag of thin pretzel squares
  • some
    hershey's kisses, unwrapped, one per pretzel square
  • some
    plain m & m's, one per pretzel square (you can color-coordinate for the holidays)

  • some
    hershey's hugs white chocolate kisses, unwrapped (instead of the hershey's kisses)

How to Make Chocolate Pretzel Squares


  1. Place pretzels on a microwavable plate. Place an unwrapped Hershey's kiss on each pretzel square.
  2. Microwave for just enough seconds** (see below) to start to melt the chocolate enough that an M & M can be pressed into the top of the Hershey's kiss.
  3. **(My microwave takes 47 seconds, then I let them stay on the warm plate for another 30 seconds or so before pressing in the M & M. If the M & M doesn't go down easily, leave it & work on another before coming back to the stubborn M & M.)
  4. Only do a few at a time so that the chocolate doesn't have time to harden again.
  5. Cool on a cooling rack (or 10 minutes in the freezer) & store in an air-tight container until ready to serve.
  6. ANOTHER GREAT IDEA: Use Hershey's Hugs in place of the Hershey's Kisses. The stripes look very festive!
