Need a last minute Christmas food gift idea? Or a quick Christmas snack or dessert? Try these easy Christmas pretzel treats. Minutes to make, cute as can be.
These Christmas pretzel treats are so simple to make.
And sweet and salty delicious, and cute to boot.
Here, I used the traditional Christmas pretzel hugs recipe (pretzel plus Hershey’s Kiss plus M and M), but instead of the M and M candy, I added some Christmas-themed icing decorations I found at the craft store.
The decorations also come in gingerbread men, candy canes, and snowmen. If the shelves are cleaned out of the cuteness, you can use any other candy you like that will fit on the pretzel.
As Christmas is still a few days away, I’m going to try and put these in a sealed container and keep them in the fridge in the hopes they will stay fresh until next week. Given the ingredients, I think I’ll be good.

Can’t wait to make several of these treats! Got grandsons that love to help and eat the idea we get on your site! Thank you “decorated cookies “
Thanks so much Theresa! So perfect to do with kids. Make them unwrap all the Hershey kisses :).
Thank you for this very tasty snack recipe. The “hardest” part was unwrapping the Candy Cane Kisses & not eating them!!
Thank you Sharon! I agree. It’s best to buy a second bag for that!
