These are very sinful...bet you can't eat just one! Made them at Christmas and 5 year old nephew cried when I was taking them home. Needless to say they stayed with him to his mothers dismay! He got them again as a surprise on his birthday in March! Looks like this will be his gift every year! EVERYONE loves the combination of chocolate, salty, nutty and pretzel. Great recipe

These have all the elements needed for a go-to recipe--they're quick, easy, and delicious! These get raves whenever I take them to gatherings, and it's fun listening to others trying to decide what all the ingredients are! Either mini pretzel twists or the little square grids work equally well.

They are so easy to make. I used Christmas (red & green) peanut M&Ms and they were a big hit.

This candy is not only very tasty, but extremely easy to make. I made over 100 in less than 30 minutes. Great for a quick snack.

I started out making 1 batch of these for Xmas 2 years ago..then I had to make a second batch because they didn't make it to Xmas eve! These make a great little gift for any occasion or party. I place them in a nice container along with the recipe-because I know they disappear fast & everyone asks for the recipe. I have turned so many people onto these little gems. They are easy, fast to make and are perfectly crunchy, sweet, salty & gooey. To change them up I've used walnuts & festive colored M&M's..but they are perfect the way they are...thanks Taste of Home & Julie for another winner!
