Snow Day Candy and Cookie Baking

It was a Snow Day for me today, and then after some getting to school through a snowstorm drama the kids were sent home early today. Since I was home we did some baking and candy making.
Here's a picture of my cookies:

Chocolate Caramel Cookies

We also made some Chocolate Pretzel Treats

You need a bag of Pretzel Snaps and a bag of Hershey's Kisses. This bag of kisses made 53 treats.

First, have your helper take all of the wrappers off of the kisses. DD loves this job...seriously...and often unwraps them by sorting them by color. lol While your helper is unwrapping the candies, preheat the oven to 170 degrees Farenheit. Then lay the pretzels on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Next, place a kiss on top of each pretzel on the tray. Pop the tray into the oven for 4-6 minutes. They will look shiny when they are melted just enough.

Press another pretzel onto the melted kiss, smooshing it to make a sandwich. When all your sandwiches are made, pop them into the fridge to chill for a few minutes. Once set, store in an airtight container or bag and enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Peace and blessings,

Those pretzel treats look so easy to make. I love the cookies too. I love anything with caramel in it.
