I love pinterest.com!  I have loved it since the moment I clicked on my first pin.  I have always loved to tear out recipes, design ideas and crafts from magazines.  I was just going through a long ignored drawer of old magazines and I found folder after folder of saved clippings.  But there was always the problem of how to use them.  When would I ever pull out that disorganized file of random torn papers?

I love pinterest so much.  Any time I come across a website with an article, recipe or craft I want to save for later I cut and copy the address into my pinterest account.  I so enjoy seeing what recipes my friends are thinking of trying or even see what is occupying their time – wedding planning, redesigning a kitchen, baby gear!  It is so searchable – if I remember somewhere back in my head that I had this great cookie recipe I wanted to try – I can search just my pins to find it.

I have over 1,000 pins on my personal account!  The majority are websites and links from other people.  This snack pin is an original from a recipe by my friend Lori.  Now that I am committing to this blog I will put my original posts on a interest account under Pickle Jinx and see how it goes.

The Perfect Football Snack

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

On an ungreased cookie sheet arrange waffle pretzels in a single layer.

Unwrap millions (not really) of hershey kisses (this is the part that takes forever! little hands can be very helpful or do it front of the tv).

Top each pretzel with a hershey kiss.

Melt hershey kisses for 2 minutes in the oven.  DO NOT OVER MELT!  You might think that longer is better – in this instance it is not.  The chocolate becomes very hard and neither the pretzel nor the m&m will stick.

As soon as you take the pretzels out of the oven press m&m’s into each hershey kiss.

Cool in the fridge or even on the counter.  You can store in a freezer bag in the freezer for up to 3 months.

*** Make them your own – one of my friends swears by rollos instead of hershey kisses.  Try peanut m&m’s?  Use your favorite team colors for a sporting event.  We are die hard New England Patriots Fans so we had to use Blue and Red.
