How to Make Christmas Pretzel Hugs

I love that you only need 3 ingredients too! 

  • Hershey Hugs,
  • Christmas M&M’s and
  • Pretzels 
On a cookie sheet, lay out a piece of parchment paper. Lay out the pretzels in a single layer. Then top each pretzels with a Hershey’s hug. 

Bake in the 200 degree oven for about 4 minutes. The kisses will still have their shape but they’ll be just on the edge of melting.

As soon as you remove them from the oven, place an M&M in the center of each candy, and push it down to spread out the hug.

Chill your christmas pretzel hugs in the fridge for 30 minutes-1 hour and enjoy!
