Dark Chocolate Peanutty Nougat

Easy, peasy to make, easy, peasy to drop on the floor. But guess what! Not only do these babies have the power to withstand the 5-second rule (shhh don't tell Public Health), but if you really are concerned, the most "painful" thing about making these is unwrapping the kisses.

Here's the recipe for 1 nougat. Multiply to your heart's content!!! :)


1 pretzel (I used circle-shaped, but I hear the checker board or even usual twist type work fine)

1 dark chocolate Hershey's kiss (I think I may experiment with new kinds of kisses in the future... I was thinking mint might be yummy)

1 peanut (or walnut or pecan or m&m or whatever you fancy)

How To:

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

2. Unwrap your kiss.

3. Place pretzel on a baking sheet. Place kiss on top of pretzel.

4. Place baking sheet with your pretzel-kiss in the oven. Bake for 4 minutes.

5. Remove baking sheet from oven. Rather quickly (but no need to rush), carefully press down peanut (or item of your desire) down on top of the kiss, somewhat flattening it.

6. Let sheet cool. Place in freezer if you're impatient like me.

Savor your mini treat!!
