“I absolutly love this recipe. My Mom and I used to make it all the time when I was a Girl Scout. It's been so long since I made it last, but it's an all-time favorite! You can use M&M colors for seasonal touches too! Some are green for St. Patrick's Day, school colors, Fall colors (Red, Orange, Brown), Christmas colors (Red and Green), ect. Have fun!!!!”
40 cookies

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 15 ounces miniature pretzels (As big a bag as you want, I suggest Snyder's mini knots)
  • 1 lb Hershey chocolate kiss (Hugs Work Best, Make sure you unwrap them all!)
  • 1 lb M&M' (Enough to cover all of the kisses at least, and a few to munch on!)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cover favorite cookie sheet with a layer of mini prezel knots (They shouldn't overlap and should have enough room to hardly touch).
  3. Set 1 hug on each pretzel center.
  4. Bake for 3 minutes.
  5. As soon as time is up, remove the pan and immediatly press one M&M on each Hug top gently (Chocolate should ooze into the pretzel holes!).
  6. Allow to cool completly (They will cool quicker if put in the fridge).
  7. When completly cooled, remove with a spatula and store in an airtight container.
