  • 36 pretzel snaps I used Snyders brand
  • 36 Hershey's Hugs candies
  • 18 red M&M's
  • 18 blue M&M's


  • 1. Preheat oven to 200°.
  • 2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • 3. Place the pretzels on the cookie sheet at least 1 inch apart.
  • 4. Top each pretzel with a Hershey's hug candy piece.
  • 5. Bake for 3-4 minutes. Remove from oven when the candy looks soft and a bit shiny. You just want to soften the candy in the oven-not melt them.
  • 6. Cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet.
  • 7. Gently press one M&M into the middle of each softened candy. This will make the Hershey's hug spread out over each pretzel.
  • 8. Let cool completely or refrigerate for 5 minutes.
  • 9. ENJOY!!
