Lucky Irish Kisses {chocolate pretzels}

So I WAS going to have a little "Green Party" for my children and a few little friends tomorrow for St. Patrick's Day. But we have had nothing but bad news today and things are a little bit of a {wreck}. But tomorrow will be better right? Before I go to bed, I wanted to share one St. Patrick's Day thing....these cute and yummy Irish Kisses I made tonight:

All you need is pretzels, Hershey's kisses, chocolate chips- I used white ones, and green M&M's.
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
Lay out your pretzels on the cookie sheet.
Place one Hershey's kiss or 4 chocolate chips on each pretzel.

When the chocolate is soft- after about 5 minutes, take out of oven and place a green M&M in the middle. If you use the chocolate chips, you can use a toothpick to swirl it a little so it looks like a clover.

I like the way the chips look like a clover shape- perfect for St. Patrick's Day. Of course can make chocolate pretzels for any holiday. So Yummy!
Happy St. Patrick's Day.
I'm not feeling well so I am going to bed.
BUT I finished the play kitchen from a nightstand! When I feel better, I'll show you!

Hope the luck of the Irish turns your day around and you are soon feeling better. I can hardly wait to see your finished kitchen. I am in need of some boy inspiration on the kitchen front!

I made these once with rolos and pecans instead of kisses and m&ms, they come out tasting like turtle candies, very yummy! I love your green ones, though, especially with the white chocolate. They are perfect for St. Paddy's Day!

I am all about anything that has to do with Chocolate, more chocolate and Ireland. So, you had me with the first picture. I am so stealing this idea! But to be honest...I will call them Sharla's Little Irish Gems.

I have never seen these made this way! I have always used rolos or something with caramel inside! I absolutely love how the little chips look like a flower! Great Idea!


I made this too! Thanks for the great idea, posting this tomorrow on my blog! :-)
