PRETZEL M&M HUGS from an online food blog titled Cooking Classy are super easy and feature only three ingredients. They are great for gifts or as an addition to a fun dessert tray at a holiday party.

YOU WILL NEED:
• Square Pretzels
• Hershey’s Hugs Chocolates

• Milk Chocolate M&Ms

HOW TO DO IT:

1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
2. Apply a single layer of pretzels onto the cookie sheet and thentop each one with a Hershey’s Hug Chocolate.

3. Allow baking for about 4-5 minutes, until the chocolate is shiny and soft. The chocolate should not be melting at this point and should still hold shape.

4. Place an M&M in the center of each and press down to allow the chocolate to spread.

5. Place in refrigerator and allow to rest until the chocolate has set. This should take about 5 minutes.

6. Enjoy your sweet and salty snack.
