Candy Cane Dots for Christmas

by | Dec 22, 2010 | Advent and Christmas, Christmas Baking, Kids in the Kitchen | 7 comments

Thank you Charlotte for sharing this fun and easy idea! 

Candy Cane Dots


1 bag of pretzels (We used the round “Butter Checkers” by Rold Gold – so the Candy Cane Dots would look like cute little Christmas Ball Ornaments! )
1 bag of Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses
1 bag of Christmas colored M&M’s


Pre-heat the oven to 200˚ degrees. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet. (I forgot to do this step, but it wasn’t a problem.) Arrange the pretzels in a single layer and add a Hershey’s kiss on top of each pretzel. Place them in the warm oven. Let them bake for about 8 minutes. The white chocolate Kisses will melt quickly, so keep an eye on them. (If you opt for chocolate kisses, they won’t melt completely, just get shiny.) Remove from oven and press an M&M in the top of each soft Kiss. Let them cool and enjoy!

    Yum!! I was wanting to ask how you made those peanut butter cup cookies! Geesh, I just need to call you, lol.

    We have made a bunch of batches of these – they are so good!!! I have found that the candy cane Kisses stick really well – the regular milk chocolate ones don't get as melty and then they fall off after they've hardened! Candy cane, dark chocolate, and mint truffle all work great, but I think candy cane are the prettiest ones! Have you made the ones with Rolos and pecans? Those are delicious!

    Oh I want to do these! Maybe for a New Years Treat. If I can wait, I love sweet and salty combos.

    Amy ~ I will try and post that recipe tonight! I just picked up more Reese's PB cups so we could make more for Christmas!

    Erin ~ No! We haven't tried the Rolos and Pecans version! That sounds so yummy!

    We were doing the same here – but yours are so lovely and Christmasy.

    I love this recipe– unfortunatley, we ate them all before Christmas!! I've also had the rolos and pecan version– very yummy!!

    The TreeKids informed me of the need to make these since they are so easy! So, we just finished off 132 of those little beauties! So festive in the white and red kisses. Bud doesn't care for white chocolate, so we also made some with regular milk chocolate kisses – yummy to be sure, but somehow they aren't quite as festive, and they sort of look like reindeer.. uhmmm… well, reindeer "lumps" on a stick that someone dropped rudolph's nose on top of. Festive in a very weird way?!?!! I like the white and red MUCH better!! 🙂

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
