Christmas Noshies

Aren't these the cutest? One of my dear church friends made these for a luncheon last week and I couldn't resist trying them myself. I don't know if they have a name, so I've dubbed them Christmas Noshies.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Put tiny pretzels on your baking sheet (I lined it with a Silpat but you can also use foil). You want the smallest pretzels, which I could only find bagged up in snack bags.

Place one Hershey's Hugs Kiss on each pretzel.

Pop in the oven for 3 to 5 minutes. You want the Hugs to soften but not melt all over the place!

Top each softened Noshie with a red or green M&M. Cool and serve! They'll keep really well so the Christmas Noshies will make good gifts or pretty treats to keep around your house.

And while we're on the subject of Christmas candy, anyone else noticed that the easiest recipe in the world for creamy delicious fudge is MIA? It used to be printed on the Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk cans. If you still have a can with this recipe, check the expiration date--betcha you need to throw it out. Here's the recipe--nothing could be simpler and more deliciosio.

There's still time to enter the 2009 Sappy Christmas Song Contest! Post your entry in the comments on the post below!
The final version will be posted tomorrow and my Gentle Readers will then get a chance to vote on the winners.

These are SO CUTE! I made a similar item (per Mindy) with pretzels, Rolos, and pecans on top. :)

That sounds good too! I bet there are a lot of variations you can make with this basic idea.

Man I wish I knew about these before today, we have the church staff party and these would have been wonderful to bring. Maybe I'll make them for something else. Thanks for sharing.

As for the fudge, our Southminster friend who makes a lot of cookies substitutes almond extract for vanilla and slivered almonds for other nuts, along with 1/2 cup (I think) chopped candied cherries. If you love chocolate/cherry it is fabulous, and it's my go-to at the end of the season when I need one more recipe to quickly round out the dessert plates!
Those little noshies are as cute as they can be!

they are my contribution for every party from now on!! They were a huge hit at office party just now.

That's great, MB! I'm so glad everyone liked them.

Ok, so I just found out that I am supposed to make 4 dozen "treats" for a concert this evening... and they asked for no chocolate chip cookies or brownies. You, me, Target and 90 minutes from shop to finish. These rock. THANKS!!!!

I can testify that they taste as good as they look--and it is VERY difficult to stop eating them!!
