Shamrock Pretzel Kiss Treats

 Tea Time today was with my four-year-old granddaughter.  We set up the kids' table and placed a pretty cloth on top and invited Mr. Bear and some beanie bears to join us.  Ella had her own little friend join in with her.  Can you see her green nail polish?  She's into the St. Patrick's Day spirit!

 Ella chose these pretty mugs for our tea. 

We made some special treats that are soooo tasty and easy for little ones to help.  Kids love lining up the pretzels and unwrapping the Hershey kisses and placing them on top.


Shamrock Pretzel Kiss Treats

mini pretzels
Hershey Kisses (or Rolos are good, too)
green M & M's 
green icing (I used a Wilton Icing Writer)

Place as many mini pretzels as you'd like onto parchment lined baking sheets.  Place the unwrapped Hershey Kiss on top of the pretzel.  Place into a preheated 200 degree oven for 7 minutes, or you can go up to a 350 degree oven for just 2 minutes.  It's your preference.  You just want the Hershey Kiss to get soft.  Take the pretzels out of the oven and place three green M &M's on top.  At this point you can refrigerate them to firm them up so that you can easily move them off of the parchment paper.  Add a bit of green icing for a stem and there you have a tasty, little treat!

I asked Ella how she liked her treats and she gave them two thumbs up!
