These fun pretzel kisses have that sweet-salty flavor combination that everyone just loves. Use regular Hershey kisses or (my preference) the dark Hershey kisses to make these. The kids can definitely help with this recipe; just be sure they're careful with candy corn. The melted chocolate can get hot.
