Pretzel Presents

My son Matthew loves making these treats with me.  They are pretty to look at and are a great quick dessert to whip up for a holiday party. You just can not go wrong, they are quick and easy to make and are the perfect salty/sweet combo.  

What you'll need:

  • square pretzels 
  • Hershey's Hugs 
  • plain M&Ms (red & green)
  • aluminum foil or parchment paper


Preheat oven to 200°.  

Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Arrange pretzels on tray.  

Unwrap the Hershey's hugs and place one on the center of each of the pretzels. Bake for 5 minutes until the chocolate is shiny and soft (but NOT melting - they should still hold their shape).  

Remove from oven and carefully place an M&M gently in the center of each hug and press it down slightly to spread the chocolate.

Allow to cool completely, and I hope you enjoy :)
