I love the combination of pretzels and chocolate, don’t you? It’s the perfect combination of salty and sweet, and so delicious. One of my favorite treats at Christmas time has always been the chocolate dipped pretzels that are so popular at holiday parties.
I saw a picture of these pretzel bites on a website a while back and thought they were the cutest things. My father’s church was having a party tonight, so I decided to try making them for it. They’re so yummy and super easy to make (only three ingredients!!).
1 bag of pretzels*
1 bag of Hershey’s Hugs (or Hershey’s Kisses)
1 bag of green and red M&M’s
* For the best results, use either square or round pretzels. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find either at any stores in my town or at Wal-Mart two towns over. As much as I have always loved living in a small town, and don’t get me wrong I really do love it, the biggest downside is the lack of options when shopping 😉
1) Preheat the oven to 175F degrees. On a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, place a single layer of pretzels. On top of each pretzel place one unwrapped Hugs candy.
2) Place the pan into the oven and warm them for about 3-4 minutes or until the Hugs have become slightly softened.
3) Remove from the oven and place one M&M’s in the center of each Hugs candy. Refrigerate for about 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to firm up.
