Reviews for Chocolate Pretzel Rings
"I make these every year. Round pretzels seem to be a geographical thing, I can always find them in Michigan, but not other places I've lived. The mini twists work fine though. I love using York pieces in them, the mint id addicting and the blue and white so pretty!"
"Make these using rolos and red or blue m&m's with my kids at school. They are a huge hit with the kids and parents alike. Wrap them in celephane bags with homemadetags the kids made for mom and dad."
"Made these using Rolo candy. These are addictive. The salt from the pretzel and the sweet from the candy is perfect! I used M&M's with some and pecans with others. It's a great recipe for holiday gift trays!!!"
"I make these with a Rolo and half of a pecan on top of the Rolo--yummy!!!"
"I made these at Christmas, and told my nieces that they were Rudolph, and Elf noses. I also use Rolos instead of Kisses. The caramel in the Rolos adds a great flavor."
"I make these for the holidays with red and green m & m's. They don't last long!"
"So easy to make and I went one step further. I dipped half of the pretzel, after they set, in white almond bark. We used Autumn M&M's for Thanksgiving Yum! The Rolo ideas sound great too, I will try that next."
"These are so easy, so tasty and so fun to make. I loved making them with my children when they were little, and now we make them with green and red M&M's at Christmas and include them in our goody bags for their teachers."
"My mom and I make these every Christmas with the red and green m&ms super easy and yummy strongly suggest you at least double or even triple the recipe they go quick!"
"Make a lot--they disappear fast!!"
"I used dark chocolate wafers, so there was no peeling foil! I put two wafers in the circle pretzels. Kids put on M&Ms so my fingers did not get chocolatey! Lol! Fun, easy project and they are gone quick! Going to have to make another batch soon!"
"I have used Rolo candies & caramel squares in place of kisses...just as yummy"
"These are so easy and such a cute treat for the kids. Fun!"
"I make then with Rolo's, the caramel makesthem better and I top them with a toasted Walnut or Pecan. Yum!"
"These were rather tedious to make ... peeling all the kisses and then pressing the M&M onto the kiss without getting chocolate on your fingers. Maybe I'm just clumsy. Even so, they're very good."
"I usesd dark chocolate rather than milk chocolate because that is what I prefer. They were great and very easy."
"Very cute and easy to makle. I had my two toddlers help me make these and they had alot of fun!!!"
"These have been a tradition in our house since I first found the recipe in Quick Cooking! Instead of Hershey Kisses, we use Hugs. They melt so nicely and the white chocolate with chocolate stripes look great with red and green M&Ms."
"Made this recipe on small pretzel twist. Took to work and everyone loved them.I addition I made some with the mint kisses and topped with the mint M & M's."
"i made these for my co-workers for christmas, quick and easy gift"
"i made these for my co-workers for christmas, quick and easy gift"
"Easy and delicious!! Make great treats!!"
"Made these numerous times over the holidays, always a big hit and so easy to make! Yummy!"
"I made these for the first time this year and used Rolo candies with colorful M&Ms. A perfect filler in a gift basket of any kind. I think Rolo candies are the best to use versus the chocolate kiss, but you could use the different flavor kisses to give a different taste."
"Everyone liked the chocolate sweet/salty taste. They are very easy and quick to make."
"Incredibly easy, incredibly yummy - my kids LOVE them!"
"Thank you so much for this wonderful little recipe! We have had a stressful week, but I needed to bake something for 3 different occasions and I needed something that would not be time consuming, but taste very good. I was so happy with this! I know the kids will love it. I didn't have to grease the cookie sheets. I used non-stick ones and I used all different kinds of little chocolates and different kinds of M&M's. It's a great presentation, easy to make, and tastes wonderful. I am very grateful for Taste of Home!!"
"Have been making these for years. They are always a HUGE hit!"
"My sister makes these & they're gone very quickly at family gatherings."
"This is very easy to make and less stress!! Also very colorful. I used M&M colors according to the seasons, example: red & green for Christmas; orange for Halloween; etc."
"We have used this recipe, but used the Rolo candies instead of Kisses. Adds the bit of extra (like it is needed) sweetness of the caramel. Loved the idea of the M&M's. Did not think to use those. Will be great for those who are allergic to nuts. Thanks."
"I made these using Christmas shaped pretzels and regular kisses with red and green M & Ms. I will try Rolo's and pecans sometime soon, too. These are easy and look like you spent a lot of time."
"These are a great hit everytime with Rolo's and topped with pecans. The pretzels are placed on silicone baking sheet and placed in the refridgerator for fast set-up . TURTLES!!"
"Made this last year for my co-workers and it was a big hit!. Also an easy project to make with my grandkids, boys & girls. Doing it again this year!! Happy Holidays!!"
"I make them with Dove chocolates - the chocolate is creamier. They're ALWAYS a big hit!"
"Ive made this recipe many times. Sometimes I use a Rollo instead of the M&M. I never grease the baking sheet and never have a problem removing the treat from it."
"These are very good. I made them without the pecans and without the m & m's. I also made them with Rolo's instead of the kisses. I had a hard time giving them away, as I wanted to eat them all myself.:) Thank you for posting such a great idea."
"I have made this recipe MANY, MANY times and ALWAYS get compliments. On special holiday occasions, I use the holiday colored M&Ms to made the Chocolate Pretzel Rings for that particular holiday. The Rolos are good when used with the pecans, but no variations from the recipe are quite as good as the original recipe."
"Easy and good. I have used Rolo candies in place of choclate kisses. These are a favorite."
"I set my grandaughters up to make these last year with me just doing the oven part. Easy and they really liked them"
"I made with Rolo candy (has the caramel inside) and pecans. It was delicious and everyone loved them!!"
"Just made this recipe with Carmel Hershey's Kisses. EXCELLENT!!"
"Always a huge hit. Super easy to make. I can only find the round pretzels during the holiday season. But, regular small twist pretzels can be used. I have expereminted with great results using: peppermint Hugs kisses with chocolate M&Ms; chocolate kisses with mint M&Ms and chocolate kisses with peanut butter M&Ms."
"You can find round pretzels at Aldi supermarkets!"
"I made this last week at my mom's house and it worked great, but when I tried it again today at my apartment the kisses wouldn't melt - they just baked and got hard and grainy. Any suggestions on why??"
"This is a holiday favorite at my house! I like the suggested variations, which I will try. Square pretzels work well too if you cannot find round ones. I have just found round ones and have used square ones up til now."
"Made these several times when my kids were younger for school parties etc. They were always a big hit.....never thought of ROLOs...that sounds DELISH!!! Will try that variation!!"
"I make many batches of these during the holidays. They are quickly gone!"
"Have made these several times. Be creative, use diff. types M&Ms, reese's pieces, raisons or craisons, min. marshmallows, etc. They're all good."
"Very quick & easy to make! We have tried every "kiss" available and they always come out great! Try an Andes mint if you have the waffle pretzels - that was good too :) Thank you for sharing!"
"I've used hugs instead of kisses and the stripes give a wonderful effect! At Christmas, you can get the red & white striped hugs, too!"
"I HAVE BEEN WANTING TO MAKE THESE FOR YEARS . WHERE DO YOU GET ROUND PRETZELS! STILL SEARCHING."
"These are very yummy with Rolo's also !! Will be making them this year also."
