Pretzel M&M Hugs

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.
