QuiCk FriEnd GifTs



I think one of the reasons that I love Valentine's Day so much is because we used to always doorbell ditch and leave treats. There's something about doing that that makes me laugh so hard every time. Now I get to take my little girl, and watching her cracks me up. She panics and runs frantically looking for a spot to hide.. i love it. So my mom let me know about these cute little pretzels.. super easy and perfect for a last minute homemade Valentine's gift..


All you need are ...


small pretzels,

Hersey's kisses (I tried hugs, caramel filled, cherry filled and then I tried a few Reese's and Rollo's)

M&Ms


I just laid mine out on a cookie sheet with wax paper. Plop one kiss on each and cook for 4-5 minutes in the oven at 180.

Some recipes I looked over warned that if you load the sheet too full, they will melt unevenly.. but I loaded it anyway because I'm seriously insane. I didn't notice a problem, but I'm not really a perfectionist.

I did notice that if you're going to do the cherry filled, they melt the fastest (but they were also a favorite).
Once they're out, put an M&M or two on there.
Then all you need is a cute cellophane bag with a little ribbon tied on it and you're good to go!
Happy doorbell ditching!
