Ingredients
  • 1bag Hershey Kisses Hugs
  • 1bag PretzelsHoliday shapes, rings, snaps, or tiny twists
  • 1bag M&M’s
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 250° F.
  2. Line 2 baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper. Align pretzels on the lined sheets. Unwrap Hugs and place in the middle of each pretzel. Put the first completed baking sheet in the oven until the Hug starts to melt down – about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Remove sheet from oven and try to press on M&M into a Hug. If the Hug flattens easily, continue with all the pretzels. If there is resistance, put back into the oven for 30 seconds – 1 minute.
  4. Put second completed baking sheet in the oven and repeat.
  5. Allow the baking sheets to cool and then place in the refrigerator so the chocolate can fully set up – about 10-20 minutes.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They keep well for up to 2 weeks.
Recipe Notes

Note – there are more pretzels and M&M’s in a bag than there are in one bag of Hugs. If you want to make more than 70, you can use a second bag of Hugs. If I’m making a big batch to last me all season I’ll use 3-4 bags of Hugs, 1 bag of M&M’s, and a little less than 2 bags of pretzels.
