  • 70 square pretzels (do not use butter snaps)
  • 70 Hershey's Hugs chocolates (from nearly 1 full 12 ounce package), unwrapped
  • 70 Milk Chocolate M&M's, I used the red and green Christmas package


Servings 70
Preparation time 5mins
Cooking time 15mins


Step 1

Preheat oven to 200°F.

Line a cookie sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper. Align pretzels on cookie sheet in a single layer then top each pretzel with one Hershey's Hug chocolate. Bake in preheated oven for 4 to 5 minutes, until the chocolate is shiny and soft (but NOT melting, the chocolates should still hold their 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.
