These treats are super easy, super fast, super kid-friendly and everyone loves them!

Technique tip: Make these a week in advance or longer and freeze until ready to serve.


    • 1 bag mini pretzels
    • 1 bag Hershey's Hugs
    • 1 bag green and red M&M's


1. Preheat oven to 200°F.

2. Lay out mini pretzels on a parchment paper-lined sheet tray.

Unwrap the Hershey's Hugs and place one on top of each mini Pretzel.

3. Place the tray with the pretzels and Hugs in the oven for 4-5 minutes, or until the chocolate slightly melts.

4. Remove from the oven and immediately place 1 green or red M&M into the center of the Hug and press down slightly.

5. Once all the pretzels have their M&M's, place the tray in the refrigerator or freezer to set the chocolate. Once the chocolate is set, transfer to food-safe containers or storage bags until ready to serve. They may be stored at room temperature or in the freezer until ready to serve.
