Christmas Pretzel Hugs

Author: Joy Kincaid


  • 1 bag waffle-shaped square pretzels
  • 2 pkg Hershey's Hugs
  • 1 bag red and green plain M&M's


  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place pretzels on the lined baking sheet.
  • Top each pretzel with an unwrapped Hug candy.
  • Bake at 170 degrees for 4-8 minutes, until chocolate is just softened but not melted. Our oven takes about 8 minutes but I start checking before that.
  • Remove baking sheet from oven, and quickly press an M&M candy in the center of each pretzel, on top of the softened hug.
  • Cool for a few minutes, then chill for about 10 minutes in the freezer, until set (just place the whole baking sheet in the freezer).
  • Store in an air-tight container or zippered bag.
