How About A Simple And Delicious Treat?

How about spending about 30 minutes, (or less with help) to make a fun treat for a valentines party!!!

Tonight is our church Valentine’s Banquet, so I decided this morning to make a treat I seen on Pinterest!  Here is what you will need.

  • 1-bag of Pretzel Squares or Mini Pretzel Twist (our Walmart didn’t have the squares)
  • 1-11oz. bag of Hershey’s Hugs (Kisses will work, but not as well)
  • 1-bag of Plain M&M’s (I got the pretty valentine colored ones!)
  • Cookie Sheet
  • Parchment or Waxed paper
  • Oven

Preheat your oven to 200°  And place your pretzels on your cookie sheet covered with Parchment paper. My cookie sheet held 70 mini twist!Now, to the most time consuming part…unwrapping the hugs!  This is where a second person would really speed up the prep time!  The first thing I had to do was eat one hug, only to test for the proper taste you know!!  So then I unwrapped and placed the hugs onto the pretzels.  However the bag only had 69 Hugs in it, and I ate one, so now I am only left with 68 treats! So now that I have all 68 hugs properly placed on my pretzels, pop them in the oven for 4-5 minutes.  You want them kinda glossy looking but not melting, just soft.  Now you should open your bag of Plain M&M’s and pour you enough in a bowl.   Be sure and don’t leave your treats in the oven too long, you don’t want them melting and running all over your cookie sheet.  Pull them out of the oven, and let set for about 1 minute.  Then take you an M&M and press into the center.  These are really soft, so there is not much pressing needed!  Now the only thing left to do is let these cool!  If you have room, put them in your refrigerator for about 30 minutes, if not they will cool at room temperature, it will just take longer.  I cheated and stuck them in my freezer for about 2 minutes ( I had to sample a finished product!)  Now I only have 67 left!!

Go ahead try it!  And Enjoy them!!!

  1. I have done something similar for years. I use Rolo candies instead of hugs and Pecan halves instead of M&M candies. These are wonderful but sometimes the little kids don’t like the nuts so I will make some with M&Ms next time too.
