Yes, they are simple! Requiring no thought at all. But for some reason these little no-brainers are quickly gobbled up at holiday gatherings. Of course these have a little Christmas flair. You can see how easily they can be used at any holiday just change out the M&M color. Perfect treat to have the little ones help out on. Get those little fingers busy unwrapping Hugs and arranging them on pretzels. This time of year it’s nice to have a simple kitchen treat!- Amanda
Pretzel M&M Hugs
60 square pretzels
60 Hershey’s Hugs chocolates (almost a full bag- 12 oz package), unwrapped
60 Milk Chocolate M&M’s (for Christmas use the red and green)
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Arrange pretzels on cookie sheet in a single layer then top each pretzel with one Hershey’s Hug chocolate. Bake for 5 minutes, until the chocolate is shiny and soft. The Hug will still have its shape.
Remove from oven and carefully place one M&M in the center of each soft Hug and press down on M&M to spread the chocolate. Place in refrigerator and allow to rest until chocolate has set, about 5 minutes. Store in an airtight container.
