  • 50 Hershey's hugs candies
  • 50 pretzels
  • 50 M&M’s


  • Heat oven to 320°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil.
  • Place pretzels on baking sheet. Top each pretzel with one unwrapped Hershey's hug.
  • Bake 2 to 4 minutes or until chocolate begins to soften, but not melt. Remove from oven and top each pretzel hug with an M&M. Allow to cool a few minutes if they're too hot. 
  • Allow to cool several hours and then store in an airtight container. 


Feel free to use Rolo's instead of Hershey's hugs if preferred. You can also top each pretzel hug with a pecan half instead of a M&M. 
To make a pretzel sandwich, top with an additional pretzel.
