Spring M&M Pretzel Treats

I realized I’ve posted these little treats on my blog, not once, not twice, but three times already. But they’re seriously so simple and delicious, I decided it was ok to post them again.


I was at CVS yesterday browsing through the 50% off Easter candy when the M&Ms caught my eye. I had some almond bark in the pantry so I instantly thought of these treats. The last time I was home in the Midwest, I stocked up on almond bark at the grocery store. I haven’t been able to find it in the Boston area anywhere. The Wilton candy melts work ok, but I definitely prefer using almond bark.


These are perfect for spring and we’ll be taking them this weekend when we visit Hubby’s family.

    Yea, we really like the candy cane kisses. They have little bits of candy cane in them so there’s a tiny bit of crunch.

    Thanks for pointing that out Jamie. I updated the recipe. You add the vanilla after the eggs.
