I started with the same ingredients: checkerboard pretzels, Hershey Kisses, and M&M's.
The most taxing part of this baking adventure is unwrapping all the Hershey Kisses.
Everyday Mom helped.
Again, my OCD tendencies got the best of me. I was bothered that the pretzels were a bit more rectangular than square so my rows weren't completely straight.
We stacked the Kisses, milk and dark onto the pretzels.
And I segregated the M&M's.
I learned something interesting from this baking adventure. Dark chocolate melts slower than milk chocolate. Who knew? I made Everyday Mom press the M&M's into the Kisses in an alternating red and green pattern so it would make a pretty picture. (P.S. I'm the one who messed up the pattern!)
The snow rolled in and dusted the ground, making it truly feel like Christmas is coming.
As soon as I got home, I put on my Jingle Jammies, turned the Christmas tree lights on, and settled in for the night.
