Fill the Cookie Jar with Shamrock Pretzel Twists

I have to apologize as I didn't get any cookies made for this month's Fill the Cookie Jar.  I had so many ideas to do but before I knew it the day came up and I didn't anything done.
Well, I am not going to say I didn't make anything.  I did but these cookies didn't take any work.  I found this idea over on pinterest and thought it was cute...

Shamrock Pretzel Twists

For each twist you need 3 pretzels, 1 Hersey kiss or Andres Mint and 1 green M&M

Arrange the 3 pretzels into a Shamrock or Clover Pattern.

Add Hershey Kiss to the middle.  Microwave in 15 second interval until the kiss is soft. 
I did 4 cookies at a time and it took approximately 1 minute to get soft.  
I did press the kiss down onto the pretzels slightly each time I checked them.


When kiss is soft enough, press down M&M into center of kiss, holding the pretzels together.
(this isn't so easy when you are holding a camera)

On Pinterest they also used a straight pretzel and placed it in the soft kiss under the M&M.
I also used a Andres Mint that I placed in the center of the shamrock.

Fill the Cookie Jar is a facebook group that was started by Cynthia of Feeding Big.  We are given a theme for the month's cookies.  As you can see this month's theme is St Patrick's Day or Green.  You can decide to join each month.  For more information click on the button below.
