- Sweet and salty is the best combination!
- They are SO EASY! You can make the entire batch in about 15 minutes.

How To Make Pretzel Hugs
- Prepare. Preheat oven to 200F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Assemble. Lay pretzels out on baking sheet. Top each pretzel with an unwrapped Hershey’s Hugs candy.
- Bake. Bake for about 5 minutes, until the candies just begin to melt.
- Top with M&Ms. Remove the pretzels from oven and gently press an M&M on top of each Hershey’s Hug.
- Let set. Let the chocolate set completely before you serve and store.
How Long Are They Good For?
These will be good for several weeks in the fridge. Make sure to store them in an airtight container.
You can serve them straight from the fridge or let them sit at room temperature for a few minutes to take the chill off. They are delicious either way!
- If you can’t find the square pretzels, use the regular pretzel shape or even the round ones.
- You can use Hershey’s Kisses if you prefer milk chocolate.
- I used milk chocolate M&Ms but you can use peanut, dark chocolate, white chocolate, whatever flavor you like. You can even use Reese’s Pieces if you want to add some peanut butter flavor!
