Craft or Crap: Simple treats leave tasty impression

Maddi Anderson Opinion Editor


1.) Preheat oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. 

2.) Lay out the pretzels on a cookie sheet and unwrap the Hershey’s Kisses, place one kiss on top of each pretzel. 

3.) Put the cookie sheet with the pretzels and kisses in the oven. Leave in for 3-4 minutes (until the chocolate is melted). 

4.) When the kisses are melted, take an M&M and place it on the tip of the kiss, press down gently until the kiss is flat on the pretzel. 

5.) Finally, place the cookie sheet in the freezer so that the chocolate hardens. Once they are cooled, the chocolate pretzels are ready for you share and enjoy. 

If you are the type of person who struggles with baking or cooking, pay close attention because this week’s craft or crap is something you might want to try. These chocolate pretzel treats are delicious and more importantly, extremely easy. For a college student with limited kitchen resources, they are the perfect treat that won’t take up all your time and won’t cause frustration. 

With a few steps and only three ingredients, these treats are difficult to ruin, which would be good for those of us who are prone to burning even simple recipes.
