Shamrock Pretzel Bites

I’m sure by now you have all seen these cute guys all over Pinterest?  Pretzels with melted Hershey kisses on them?!  Well I found a cute way to make them to celebrate Pantone’s Color of the year’s favorite holiday!  St. Patrick’s Day!  How cute are these emerald shamrock pretzel bites??? Hershey Kiss Shamrock Pretzel Bites1 They are so easy to make, seriously…so easy that I made a batch, ate them all and then made another batch in the course of about 20 minutes!  No Lie! I’m sure my rear thanks me for that moment of complete an utter lack of self control!  My taste-buds on the other hand were particularly fond my milk chocolate inhalation escapade.

Recipe is so simple.  Cookie Sheet, Parchment Paper, Pretzels, Hershey Kisses, Bake, smoosh in green M&M’s, add an icing stem when cool, eat.  {and in my case, repeat!} Hershey Kiss and Pretzels Pretzel Bite Middle Step Shamrock Pretzel Bite close Up with Stemy Hershey Kiss Pretzel Bites

Ingredients Needed:

  • Green Tube Icing
  • Supplies Needed:
  • Cookie Sheet
  • Parchment Paper
  • Small Icing Tip


  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
  • Place pretzels down and top with an unwrapped Hershey Kiss.
  • Bake at 200 Degrees for about 7 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and immediately press three green M&M candies onto each pretzel/kiss.
  • When cool, use icing tip on a tube of green frosting to draw on the stems of the shamrocks.

You want the Hershey Kisses to be soft but not completely melted on your pretzel. 7 minutes did the trick but you might have to adjust depending on your oven.

    • The big problem with this is that Hershey kisses don’t melt! They remained very hard even after 10 or 12 minutes in the oven. So they were very hard to make but still ended up delicious. Next time I will use the meltable chocolate wafers.

  1. A.dor.a.ble. And beyond! How many bags of M&M’s did you have to buy to get that many green ones? Or do they come just green for St Patricks? Regardless, I’ll be making them!

  2. Too cute!!! I love it!! You should have some that had 4 M&M’s…it could be a game to whoever gets the 4 M&M’s gets to pick out their favorite movie to watch as a family or something like that. But don’t tell them until someone has gotten it…he he.

  3. I Love your blog! I want to invite you to be a guest on my Invite a Guest Friday where I get one blogger every Friday to share a recipe on my blog! I would love if you shared this shamrock recipe with me. I will post it on my blog and have places where people can click and go to your blog! I would love if you would be my guest.

  6. […] I don’t just love crafts, though, I love fun, super unhealthy foods to make for each holiday.  I found these adorable shamrock chocolate covered pretzels and m&m’s.  They don’t take a ton of effort, or time (both of which are a huge bonus in my opinion) and they are absolutely adorable.  I know that in addition to my kids and myself loving them, my very Irish husband would appreciate them, too! You can find the tutorial on making these, here. […]
