Pretzel Hugs

Here is the recipe for Tucker's famous Pretzel Hugs. We took these to kindegarten last year the first time we were assigned snacks and the kids loved them. We took them again for the Christmas party. This year everyone requested Tuck bring them when he had snack. They were requested a second time for the Christmas party.

Preheat the oven to about 250

Lay out pretzels on a wax paper/parchement paper lined cookie sheet (with sides is best). On top of each pretzel place one Hershey Hugs Kiss. These can be white with brown (Halloween) or white with red swirls (Christmas).

Place in oven for just a couple of minutes. I find it best to just stand there and keep an eye on them. If not, I have a tendency to get side-tracked and end up with a huge mess of white chocolate (hence the waxpaper/parchement paper makes for easy clean up). You want the kiss to get soft, but not melt.

Remove from oven and place two - three holiday colored M&M's (plain). We use the Halloween ones for Halloween and the Christmas (red and green) ones for Christmas...obviously.

Then place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Remove and place in air tight container.

It's a tasty salty/sweet combination and very easy...Enjoy!
