Fall Pretzel Chocolate Bites
My mom used to make versions of these for other holidays, so I took a different twist on it for Halloween and fall. These are perfect little bites for neighborhood or coworker gifts and can easily be made in advance.
The little pumpkin bites are pretty sweet. The M&M version is not as sweet. If you want the sweetness of the candy pumpkins, but not to that extent, you could substitute candy corns for the pumpkins.
The other great thing about this recipe is that you can make however many pieces you need. You don't have to have extras or can just make a couple quickly if you need to.
Miniature square pretzels
Hugs candy (or kisses if you don't like white chocolate...they just won't have the cute stripes)
Candy pumpkins, candy corn, or M&M's (I used the fall colored milk chocolate ones)
Preheat the oven to 170.
Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
Spread out the pretzels.
Place a Hug candy on each pretzel.
Put the baking sheet in the oven and let the chocolates soften for 6-7 minutes (6 minutes if using a heavy top candy like the pumpkins and 7 minutes for smaller candies like M&M's).
Remove the baking sheet and top the chocolate candy with the pumpkins or other candies.
Put the candies (on the baking sheet) in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes.
Remove them from the fridge and let them cool completely.
Store the bites in an airtight container.
