Inside Out Chocolate Covered Pretzels

If you don't like chocolate covered pretzels, something might be wrong with you.  Seriously, you should get that checked.  What's not to love?  Salty, sweet, seriously delicious.  I used to make them all the time.  But it's a lot of work tempering the chocolate and dipping the pretzels, letting them dry, etc.  So when I saw this on Pinterest, I was intrigued.  Could I get my chocolate covered pretzel fix so quickly and easily?  Let's find out, shall we?


Square pretzels
Hershey's Kisses

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Line a cookie sheet with foil.  Lay out square pretzels in a single layer on sheet.

Unwrap the Kisses and place one on top of each pretzel.

Place sheet in oven for two minutes only.  Any longer and the Kisses will melt through the pretzel and that's not what you want.  Remove from oven and let sit for one minute more to continue the melting process.  They won't look melted, just shiny.

Place another pretzel on top of each Kiss and press down lightly.

Let the pretzels cool.  You can place them in the fridge for about 20 minutes or just let them sit at room temperature, but that will take a bit longer.  Either way, these turn out great!  I do recommend that if you refrigerate them, let them sit a few minutes at room temp before eating.  You want the chocolate to be soft, not cold and hard from the fridge.You can use any flavor of Hershey's Kisses.  I like dark chocolate, my kids like milk chocolate.  But, the white chocolate Hugs are pretty good, too.  Imagine how cute the red, white and green Christmas Kisses would be!  Great gift idea!

So there you go, a fast, really easy way to get that sweet /salty fix.  Enjoy!
