What I Did: I thought this would be an easy baking project to do with my 95-year-old grandmother who misses doing things like this. I followed the directions exactly. The only thing I can think of is that I used mini pretzel twists instead of round ones that I could not find anywhere. I figured it would melt down into the grooves in a hot oven.
Next Time I Will: After posting, two friends responded that the same thing happened to them so it is one of two things…either the direct contact of the kiss to the metal (using a round [not to be found] pretzel is what actually makes it melt OR they actually melted the chocolate and spooned it in – which a friend said she ended up doing.
