Well, I decided to do my take on them - first, I couldn't find round pretzels so I used these square ones that look like a grid - they are good for this because they make a little plate of sorts. :-) You place the Kiss on the center, place it in the oven (mine was 250* because I couldn't remember where I found the blog!) and I watched closely - did NOT walk away (I tend to ruin food because I get caught up doing something else). So I watched and tested. Instead of an M&M in the center (just didn't appeal to me) I used Planters Cocktail nuts in sea salt. I placed either a whole nut, or a half nut, in the center.
Now I will tell you, they are cooled and still soft and mushy. I don't know if they were supposed to stay soft. A friend told me she got some for Christmas in a tin of goodies....so I don't think hers could have stayed soft....but, the issue might be that I used the Kisses with caramel in some, and ones with the soft chocolate centers in them. I might have to buy regular Kisses (oh darn) to try them again and see if it has a different affect.
So here are the pics!

I'm very tired today - guess it's been a busy week and it caught up with me. Yawn.
It doesn't help that it's 64 degrees out right now and it's nice and warm.....I could grab a blanket and pillow and fall asleep in the sun on the porch. Supposed to be nice again tomorrow although I keep hearing not quite as warm. But it's pretty danged nice out considering it's January in Virginia!
So that's all I have for today. Haven't done any crafting of any sort for a couple of days (I did babysit Grand Baby Girl yesterday tho!).
