Fall Treat Bites

I’ve had a ton of emails asking about the mini treat bites that were in my
 So, here’s the 411 on how to make these tasty bites! 
 I use round checkerboard type pretzels – they’re my favorites for this treat because of their wide shape! Place your pretzels out on a cookie sheet – all flat! Then put a Hershey’s kiss on each pretzel. Put the cookie sheet in the oven for about 8 minutes on 250 degrees or so (to be honest I just do this without noticing what I put the oven on!) but, you want a low temp so they don’t “bake”, you just want them to melt a teeny bit! 


The kisses will soften up but you don’t want them a 
blobby mess, so keep checking them. 
 I prolly do about 8 minutes – give or take a few! 



When the kisses are soft, pull the cookie sheet out and press a Reese’s Piece ( what ARE Reese’s Pieces in singular form, anyway?) into the center of the kiss and press it down! 


Let them cool until solid! I always end up putting the cookie sheet into the fridge for 30 minutes or so to help the cooling process speed up a bit! 


Once the kisses are solid and cooled, they are ready to be enjoyed! I also make these during the holiday season, using holiday M’nM’s. I call those “elf prints” so I guess these fall guys would be “jack-o-lantern” prints! 
They are the perfect sweet & salty treat!

  1. My college roommate made another variation of these. Instead of using Kisses, she used Rolos and topped them with a pecan. Either way…delicious and addictive snack!

  2. I've seen a few versions of these on pinterest but never with that type of pretzel! I'll have to try to make these for one of my Halloween parties. Thanks for sharing! :]

  3. I made these using M&M's and the big, square pretzels for my daughter's birthday back in July. I haven't thought about using Reece's Pieces! That sounds even more delicious!
