“These go together super fast and are great to take to a cookie exchange or Christmas party. They do require time to cool.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (8 ounce) bag small pretzels (I prefer the square shape)
  • 2 (14 ounce) bags Hershey's Hugs chocolates
  • 1 (13 ounce) bag M&M's plain chocolate candy (Christmas colors)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Meanwhile, place pretzels on a baking sheet. Unwrap hugs and place one on top of each pretzel. Place in oven for about 3-5 minutes--Watch carefully!--the shape of the hugs candy should remain but it should be soft when you press on it.
  2. Remove from oven and immediately press one M and M candy on top of the hug, pushing down to spread out the chocolate. It leaves a lovely swirl pattern and the red and green candies on top are very festive. That's it! Just chill and store in a tin. These are so very addicting. Enjoy!
