These are so easy to make and super adorable. All kids (and adults!) will go crazy for these simple, fun Halloween treats!
There are so many extremely creative, fun Halloween treats out there. I mostly just browse through those recipes because I am not that creative myself. And I consider myself to be a very simple baker.
There’s nothing wrong with that, right? I actually enjoy baking very much. But if there is an elaborate recipe, I will mostly always pass on it.
I am not a huge fan of all of the artificial colors and stuff since my kids get so much candy from trick-or-treating. I like finding simple and adorable treats that don’t take a lot of time (who has any time these days?)
And truth be told, especially when your kids are younger, they get sooo much (unnecessary) candy this time of year, why should we go make elaborate desserts filled with even more sugar? I really try my best not to overload them with too much sugar and junk but everything in moderation, right?
I thought, why not make a fun twist on my Pretzel Kisses?
They are simple to make, small bite-sized, and adorable. What’s not to love about these?
And these are a perfect example of me and my “simple” treats. Not everything has to be over the top and elaborate to be cute and taste delicious. Am I right?
These goggly eyes have thousands of options and my kids love them! These are perfect for the kids’ lunch boxes especially when you want to give them a small treat. And let’s keep it real here, I am really not THAT creative with treats and such.
This is about how creative I get. And it doesn’t mean just because they are simple to make, they can’t still be delicious! Don’t you just love a sweet and salty treat?
The best part of these is that you can customize them to any way you like them. Use any color Hershey’s Kisses or Hugs, you can use other types pretzels…the possibilities are endless. Have some fun and mix it up!
I only found them once but the orange colored Hershey kisses looked adorable when I used them too! Please let me know if anyone finds them, I can seem to find them anywhere. I wonder if they were discontinued?
Googly Eye Pretzel Kisses
- Square Pretzel Snaps
- Hershey Kisses or Hugs
- Googly Eyes
Preheat oven to 175 degrees F.
Place pretzels flat on baking tray. Remove all broken pieces.
Unwrap hershey kisses and place on top each of the pretzels.*If using Hershey Hugs, they melt faster then plain milk chocolate so adjust the baking time
Place baking tray in oven for 10 minutes (less for Hugs) until kisses get shiny and soften.
Immediately remove from the oven, place m & m on top. Place them in refrigerator or freezer to set, about 15 minutes.
I mean, seriously, aren’t these googly eyes so cute? They make anything look adorable! You can buy them from Amazon here.
Come see how easy they are to make with my video. I promise even a child can make these (with supervision of course depending on their age)…
I hope to get more creative with my Halloween treats, but these are easy and adorable too. Sometimes that’s all you need. Easy and super cute. 🙂
And for everyone who sent me prayers and sweet notes about my surgery, thank you so much. I am doing really well and felling great. I appreciate all of the notes and emails from all of you.
