Untitled Pretzel, Marshmallow, M&M Project

These are the easiest, and one of the tastiest, little treats you can make. You can whip up a huge batch in under 10 minutes, and if you bring them to a party, people will love you. There's something about the combination of salty, crunchy pretzels, paired with chewy marshmallows and the sweetness of chocolate that makes taste buds swoon.

The only thing is that I don't have an all-purpose name for them. Sadie came up with Shrunken Monkey Heads for the Halloween Party, but that wouldn't really fly at a Christmas bash, would it?

Got name suggestions? Post 'em in the comments!

Place pretzels on a large, flat plate lined with parchment. Place marshmallows in each of the pretzels' holes. Microwave the marshmallow-filled pretzels until the 'mallows swell in size, approximately 15 to 20 seconds.

Pull the pretzels from the microwave and, working quickly, press an M&M into the center of each marshmallow. Allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.

That is really fun!

Who would have thought that something so simple could be so yummy? For Christmas, use 2 red and one green M&M and call them Holly Berries.

I love the holly berry name idea! (I tried to find the orange & brown M&Ms they put out for Halloween, but the store didn't have any. Boo.)

Continuing Emily's idea, you could always switch it up for various holidays... Pastel M&Ms for Easter and call them Easter daisies, all green M&Ms on St. Paddy's Day for little shamrocks, red and blue M&Ms for the 4th of July and call them spangled stars... This is getting fun!
