These Easy Pretzel Kisses are simple to make, fun, festive and delicious! You will love to make these Easy Pretzel Kisses year after year, all year long.
I am sure you have all seen these many times before, but I thought I'd share them with you anyway. I did not make these up , but I've been making them for years.
These are my FAVORITE treat to make with the kids.
And they are so easy the kids can practically make them on their own, depending on their ages.
The kids love to help unwrap the kisses and arrange the pretzels and there is really no way to ruin them (trust me, with three kids, I'd know 🙂 )
If you are looking for some other sweet and salty treats, you will love these Googly Eye Pretzel Kisses and definitely these adorable Shamrock Pretzels!
If you are looking for some more easy and delicious desserts, you will love these Gingerbread Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, Keto Butter Cookies, Red Velvet Cookies and Iced Sugar Cookies. All of these would be even better with some Apple Chai Latte, Chamomile Latte or some Low Carb Bulletproof Hot Chocolate.
And, just because it's the holidays and we are feeling festive, these would also be yummy with Slow Cooker Mulled Wine, Cranberry Mojitos and definitely some Spiked Apple Cider!
Why You Should Make These Easy Pretzel Kisses
The beauty of these are you can use them for every holiday because kisses come in just about every holiday color! I've used different kind of kisses too, dark chocolate kisses, hugs etc.
You can also top each kiss with different nuts to other candy too. Get creative with the kiddies! Let them try new ways to make these.
Jut being honest here, my least favorite part of making these is unwrapping the kisses.
I bet one of your kids will love to help with that task, as long as you pay them in a kiss or two. It's worth every penny.
Do you like doing holiday traditions with your family? I try to keep them going, but it does get more difficult once your kids get older and busier.
Every year we spend the Sunday before Christmas and bake a ton of cookies and treats. I typically make 12-15 dozen treats, in a huge variety of assortments.
I really, really enjoy it and my little two help for some of it.
I'll be honest though, I give most of them away as holiday gifts so the perfectionist in me wants them done right, do you know what I mean? My kids help with the easier, no fail treats like these!
I'll take care of the other ones that might need a little more precision.
Ok, back to these Easy Pretzel Kisses. I told you how versatile these are to mix it up. Look how pretty these are to make for Valentine's Day...
Recipe Tips and More Treats You Will Love
I make these Peppermint Crunch Cookies that are outstanding! The crushed candy canes in here give the perfect amount of crunch. These are a great way to mix up your cookie list.
These Gluten Free Butter Pecan Cookies are a huge crowd pleaser too, and not just with my celiac friends. The texture of these cookies is so perfect that no one will even know that they are gluten free. I like to bring these to parties to accommodate those who can't tolerate gluten or who might have a sensitivity.
Now who doesn't love a classic, chewy Peanut Butter Cookie? These are crazy delicious and can easily be made with your favorite nut butter (almond, cashew are yummy) or seed butter ( I have made them with sunflower seed butter).
They are naturally gluten free and super simple to prepare.
These Cranberry Orange Cookies are scrumptious enough for dessert and healthy enough to eat for breakfast! Go ahead, eat them for both, I won't tell. I absolutely love cranberry and orange together, especially during the holidays.
I can't even tell you how much I adore macadamia nuts. These Cranberry White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies are the perfect blend of all these festive flavors. White chocolate and macadamia nuts are a match made in heaven.
And I can't forget my two favorite treats to make! No, they aren't cookies but they sure are delicious.
And so easy to make it's almost embarrassing.
This Low Carb Salted Pecan Dark Chocolate Bark is a must make. I typically bring this to parties because it's low carb and sugar free so I can eat it too!
This bark takes just minutes to make.
This Slow Cooker Crispy Almond Chocolate Candy is another one I frequently bring to parties. I love it because you make it in the slow cooker so you can bake other goodies in your oven.
I like to use sugar free chocolate chips and gluten free crispy rice to make it allergy friendly.

These are one of my favorite treats to make around the holidays. So easy and delicious!
These were so easy and SO delicious! Will absolutely be making again and for different holidays with different colors - so fun!
I love how simple these were to make! I needed something last minute to take to a party and not only they were easy to make, but they were also the first to go!
These are super easy and always a hit whenever I make them. Delicious!
These are a family favorite at our house! So easy to make and the best sweet and salty combo. We just made them with Valentine M&M's to take to our neighborhood Valentine's party!
these can be made with Glutino's gluten-free pretzels, too! although the chocolate to pretzel ratio will be a little heavy on the chocolate side because the pretzels are smaller.
