Chocolatey Treats

Don’t get me wrong- I absolutely love baking.  The process, the messiness, the smell of a warm, homemade dessert fresh from the oven…but when I saw the 100% stress-free recipe for these adorable (and Christmas-y!) pretzel bites, I knew I had to make them.  As a long time fan of combination sweet and salty treats, I was immediately drawn to the idea of chocolatey pretzels without the tedious dipping process.  I whipped up an experimental batch for my sister’s Christmas party, and found myself reaching for them all night…definitely a sign of success!  I will absolutely be adding these little guys to my list of annual holiday snacks!

You Will Need:

  • small waffle pretzels (I like Snyder’s ‘Snaps’)
  • Hershey’s Hugs chocolates
  • M&Ms (red and green for a Christmas party, of course!)

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and fill with as many pretzels as you can (in one layer).  On each pretzel, place one unwrapped hug.

Bake for 4-6 minutes or until hugs are slightly melted.  Remove from oven and gently place one M&M in the center of each hug. 

Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes to set.

And enjoy!
