I came across this recipe a while ago and immediately tagged it as a Valentine’s Day treat. Though I love the original circle-shaped edition, round pretzels just were not to be found in our town, so we opted for the “snaps,” the square thatched pretzels…which worked just as well.
You will need:
2 bags Hershey’s Kisses or Hugs (nut-free), or a combination of both
1 large bag M&M candies
1 bag pretzel rounds or squares
Parchment paper or foil
The most tedious part was unwrapping all of the Hershey’s Kisses & Hugs. But I did sneak a couple, which aided in the process and kept me going.
Place the pretzels on the foil or parchment lined cookie sheets, then place a Kiss or Hug in the center of each.
Place in a 350 degree oven for 2-1/2 to 3 minutes, just till candy begins to soften and melt. Remove and immediately press an M&M into the center of each kiss (a drinking straw helps keep your fingers mess-free). Cool slightly, then transfer sheets to the refrigerator for a few minutes to set.
These are addictive — I’ll warn you! But oh-so-good…and pretty cute, too. Enjoy!
