Tip #1:  If you end up using Hugs (white chocolate swirled with milk chocolate ones), these will melt faster than the regular milk chocolate ones.  This was the first time that I mixed both kinds on the same cookie sheet.  I would recommend separating the batches on different cookie sheets to ensure equal melting time for all on sheet.

Tip #2If you have a lot of pretzels on the baking sheet, you might want to have an extra hand to assist you in placing the M&M’s on the pretzels. 

Tip #3:  BONUS ALTERNATIVE RECIPE!  Swap Hershey’s Kisses for Rolo’s and M&M’s for Whole Pecans.  Now you have mini Turtle Bites!  My mom does this recipe around the holidays!
