Everyone is looking for a quick and easy snack that the kids can help make at this busy time of the year.
Borrowing from ideas that I use to make Christmas treats, I assembled these candy corn treats in no time and they were a big hit with all the kids.
They are so easy to make that my 9 year old was able to put them together almost completely on her own, once I showed her what to do.
Only 3 Ingredients needed:
* Bag of small circle or square shaped pretzels
* Hershey Kisses or Mini Reese Cups
* Candy corn
First step, for easy cleanup, is to lay a sheet of wax paper or parchment paper on cookie sheets. It is best to use cookie sheets or baking sheets with small sides, so that if the pretzels slide around they won't slide off the edge. (don't even ask how I know this!)
Line up your pretzels in nice, neat rows (makes it easier to work faster when the chocolate is cooling).
Place a Hershey kiss or mini PB cup on the center of each pretzel.
Pre-heat the oven to 200 deg. and place the baking trays in the oven for 4 minutes.
As soon as you remove the trays, start placing a candy corn in the middle of each mound of chocolate. Push the candy corn down gently so it will stick and not fall off as the chocolate cools.
Let the treats cool completely, about half hour, before removing them from the tray. Store in a cool, dry place.
