Colette writes, "This is a fun printable I'll be using to give as gifts to my Visiting Teaching sisters and my husband's Home Teaching families this year. Of course, any M&M treat would work with the legend tag, but my favorite is "Peppermint Pretzel Melts". They are quick, easy and everyone loves them. Plus, it's so simple that the kids can help!
Start by lining a cookie sheet with wax paper, then fill the sheet completely with square pretzels. Top each pretzel with a peppermint Hershey Kiss (already available at Target and Walmart this year). Heat your oven to about 170 degrees and WATCHING CLOSELY warm them for 5 to 6 minutes. You want to soften the Kiss, not melt it (or it turns into a big mess)! When it's soft (but is still holding it's "kiss" form), you can drop and slightly press an M&M on top. Chill for 5 to 10 minutes to set, wrap in a cello bag with ribbon, attach the M&M Nativity Story and you're done!
As a side note, I made up a bunch of these last year and also gave them to neighbors and my husband's co-workers. We lived in an area that was not predominantly LDS... so it was an easy way to share the nativity and spirit of Christmas with our non-LDS friends and acquaintances."
