These festive Christmas Pretzel Hugs are melted just enough to press an M&M on the top. Let the chocolate set back up and then package them for neighbor gifts, or place them on a plate for the perfect salty-sweet treat!
Looking for an easy and delicious salty-sweet Christmas treat?! Well, you’re in luck! These Christmas Pretzel Hugs are totally easy and completely addicting!
The best thing about these is that they are so easy, the kids can help and they’re cute enough to package up for neighbor gifts!
All it takes is pretzels, hugs, and m&ms. Heat the pretzels and hugs for 5 minutes in the oven, and press the m&ms on top of the warm chocolates.
You will need to wait for the chocolate to set back up before you package them, so I put mine in the freezer until they are firm, but not before I grab one to snack on all melty from the oven. 😉
I think these would work okay with the candy cane kisses as well, but don’t try the carmel filled kisses. We tried, and it was no bueno! They don’t melt the same. Anyway, you will want to make these to snack on for sure, so head to the store and grab what you need!
