Easy Christmas Cookies

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

On a parchment lined baking sheet have your kids help you put one Candy Cane Kiss on each pretzel. They can be pretty close to each other as they don’t really “spread”.

Put them in the oven for 3 minutes. (they should be a slightly squishy circle on top of the pretzels)

M & M Christmas CookiesRed and green cookies

Pull out the pretzels place them on a hot pad. If your children are old enough to help you without burning themselves on the hot cookie sheet, have them help you put one M&M (M side down) on each pretzel. You want to gently press them down in the center.

Let the chocolate re-harden before eating, storing, or making into gift bags (we do lots of these!). These are the perfect red and green christmas food ideas.

Note: To speed up the hardening process, you can just pop the cookie sheet into the fridge (or cold garage) for a couple minutes.
