Pretzel Hugs Ingredients:

How to make Pretzel Hugs

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.

While the oven is heating, unwrap all of the Hershey hugs and set them aside.

Prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Next, arrange the desired amount of pretzels on the parchment-lined baking sheet.

Top each square pretzel with one Hershey’s hug. Ensure the hug is in the center of the pretzel to avoid spillover. Once all of the hugs are in place, put the baking sheet in the oven for 3 minutes 30 seconds or until the hugs are slightly melted.

Remove from the oven. Using a toothpick, gently jiggle the center of each hug to flood the chocolate on the pretzel.

Then gently set in place one M & M in the center of each hug. Ensure you do not press down or the chocolate may run over the edge of the pretzel. Repeat this step until all the hugs have an M & M.

Place on a cooling rack to cool at room temperature or you can also place them in the refrigerator or freezer for expedited cooling.

Package in your favorite airtight jar or tin for a cute gift or serve immediately and enjoy!
