pretzel hugs.

ok, if you’ve been reading SBA for the past few months, you know i am a tad obsessed with chocolate covered pretzels.  they were the first “recipe” i ever made and quickly became my go-to for nearly every holiday.  the salty/sweet combination gets me every time. lately, i’ve been playing around with my beloved chocolate covered pretzels and created these:

today, i’m bringing you another spin off. pretzel hugs.

Pin It

are these not the cutest things you’ve ever seen??  not only are they adorable, they are SO easy.  this recipe is hardly a recipe.  stick a hershey kisses hug on top of a square pretzel. melt for 3 minutes. press an m&m on top.  done.  it takes less than 5 minutes to make these. then, you have to let them cool and the chocolate set.  or just eat them all when the hugs are all melty and gooey. mmmmmmmmm!


i chose green m&ms for st patrick’s day, but go with your fave color or use a color for any upcoming holiday.

aaaaaaaaand then i couldn’t NOT use pink m&ms. if you couldn’t tell by everything around you here on my site, i’m a tad obsessed with all things pink.


pretzel hugs

(categorized under cupcakes & fun sweets)
  • square pretzels
  • hershey kisses hugs
  • m&ms


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line baking sheet with wax paper or aluminum foil.  Lay however many pretzels you want to make on the sheet.
  3. Unwrap hugs and place one on each pretzel.  Stick in the oven until the hug begins to melt down (mine took about 3 mins, depends on your oven).
  4. While the pretzels hugs are in the oven, get your m&m’s out and ready because you will have to work fairly quickly after the pretzel hugs come out of the oven.
  5. Remove pretzel hugs from oven and gently press an m&m down on each one. (The hug should flatten out when you press the m&m in it.  If it is not flattening out, place the pretzel hugs back in the oven for 30 more seconds.)
  6. Let the pretzel hugs cool completely and let the chocolate set for about 1 hour.  Enjoy!

ps- i think you’ll enjoy these treats too ;)
