pretzel hugs


Today was the first day I spent baking for the holiday season. I opted to do something super simple/fast, but so delicious…Pretzel hugs!

Things you need:

2 bags of Hershey’s Hugs
1 ‘pounder’ bag of pretzel snaps


2 large cookie sheets lined with wax paper or tin foil.
Preheat oven to 300’
Unwrap your Hugs!

Step 1: Line your cookie sheets with a layer of pretzels, I was able to fit 60 per cookie sheet.

Step 2: Put 1 hug on each pretzel

Step 3: Place in oven for 2-3 minutes.
This is the only step that requires precision. As soon as the hugs look glossy remove from the oven, if not you will have one soupy mess.

Step 4: Place a second pretzel on top of the Hug and gently press down to create a pretzel/hug sandwich.

Step 5: Place cookie sheets in to fridge, let cool for 15-20 minutes.

Step 6: Enjoy!

another option is to use an almond or M&M to press the hug onto the bottom pretzel in place of the top pretzel!
