Shamrock Pretzel Bites

Pretzel bites are all the rage right now and I’ve 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???  Fun to make and even better to enjoy, they taste amazing!

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.

What you need for Shamrock Pretzel Bites:


The process to make these is very simple.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and add a layer of pretzel twists.  Place an unwrapped kiss on top of each pretzel and pop in the oven.  Heat just until the kisses are soft but NOT fully melted. Hershey Kiss and Pretzels

Smoosh (that’s a technical term here!) three Green M&M Candies onto the kiss.  You can use regular or the Mint M&M’s are delicious as well!

Pretzel Bite Middle Step

Set aside and allow the kiss chocolate to reharden a bit.  If it’s still soft, it’s really hard for the next step, which is to use tube green frosting and draw on the shamrock stems.

These are so freaking good that you will want to go ahead and just make a double batch to start.  You can make 1 batch but I would be pretty confident to bet that you will need to go back and make one more soon after!  {wink!}

RECIPE NOTES:

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.

    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!

    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.

    These would also be yummy with a softened
    rolo instead of kiss.

  • Adorable!! Thanks for sharing!
