An Easy (kid friendly) Holiday Treat

This is about as easy as it gets.  We make tons of these during the holidays.
We bring them to every event and party and give them away with gifts, too.
I need to think of a good name for them - M&M Pretzel Treats is about all I've got.
They're the perfect mix of salt, sweet, and chocolate....mmmmmm.

The 3 Ingredients:
1. Pretzel Snaps
2. M&Ms (just the regular milk chocolate kind)
3. White Candy Melts (I find these at JoAnns or Walmart)

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees.
Fill a baking sheet with with pretzels.
Put a candy melt on each one.
Put in the oven for 3 1/2 minutes.

Pull them out of the oven and smush 2 M&Ms on each one.
Let them sit until they're hard again.

That's it!  Easiest holiday treat ever!  And the kids can do most of the work.  Score!
