So, I hear there’s this football game coming up. The Wonderbowl? No wait…that’s not it. The Splendidbowl? No no. That’s not it either.
Forgive me while I amuse myself over here.
I could care less about football. I do, however, join the millions of people who look forward to the Super Bowl. Clearly not for the game, though…show me those funny commercials and pass me the chicken wings. Woot!
Or, pass me a bowl of these babies. The perfect sweet and salty combo. And so easy to make, it’s ridiculous. Plus you can assemble as few or as many to accommodate the size of your crowd.
Here’s the catch. I searched high and low for these round pretzel rings and couldn’t find them anywhere near my house. I even had trouble finding them online. But I’m tenacious and don’t give up easily. When I found them, I bought…a lot.
And you all get to benefit from my desperation.
3 lucky readers (U.S. and Canadian Residents only) have a chance to win a 9 ounce bag (which holds approx. 150 pretzel rings – I counted!)

The drawing closes on Friday, January 28th at 7pm PST.
p.s. if you don’t end up being a lucky winner, and you can’t find them at your local stores, you can order some from Ballreich’s online, here.
There were so many entrants, I just couldn’t resist pulling one extra bag out of my stash! So the winners are (blog) Adam Friedman and Devon and (Facebook) Bobette McCann and Brenda Stewart. Now all you have to do is go buy yourselves some Hershey’s Kisses and M&Ms. Congrats!
Superbowl Pretzel Rings
Makes as many as you want!
Prep time: 10 minutes/per 50
Cook time: 2 minutes
Cooling time: 15 minutes
• Round pretzels
• Hershey kisses (I used milk chocolate)
Preheat the oven to 350.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place kisses on baking sheet and drop a pretzel ring over each one.
Pop them in the oven for 2 minutes. (Just until they get soft, but not until they melt. You want them to retain their shape.) As soon as they come out of the oven, gently place an M&M on top of the kiss and push down slightly to fill the pretzel with chocolate.
Stick the baking sheet in the refrigerator until they firm up. Store in an airtight container.
