Place pretzels 1-inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Place a Hershey's chocolate Kiss in the center of each pretzel and bake for 5 minutes.

When pushing down you may need to wiggle the chocolate around a little to fill in any gaps between the chocolate and the pretzel. This will help the chocolate stick to the pretzel. Allow to cool completely.
