My mom found a recipe online for these really simple chocolate pretzel treats and since she's thinking about taking them for a dish to pass at one or both of our family Christmas gatherings we decided to experiment with them to make sure they were actually as easy and good as they sounded.
A bag of your favorite Pretzels (they sell Christmas tree shaped ones)
Hershey's Kisses (we used chocolate stars)
M&M's (we tried chocolate covered raisins too but the M&M's tasted better)
We threw 10 pretzels in a circle on a paper plate covered in wax paper and topped each with a chocolate star. After that you stick them in the microwave (we experimented for awhile before we found the right amount of time for our microwave) the recipe said 30 seconds we ended up doing 77 seconds. Pull them out of the microwave and shove an M&M into the melty chocolate star.
We ended up needing to put them in the fridge for a while to get the chocolate to harden up again (not that all of them made it that far ;P). They were indeed easy and tasty.
