Check these out before you say GROSS!! They're not what you think....Honest. I had these a while back at my stamp club, courtesy of another stamper. They are so popular around here right now that you can't find the pretzel rings or Hugs just anywhere. Hope you'll try them too! They're so simple, I'm kinda ashamed to call it a recipe......... ZWT MidAtlantic for the chocolate

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (11 ounce) package Hershey's Hugs chocolates
  • 1 (16 ounce) package M&M's plain chocolate candy
  • 1 (16 ounce) bag pretzel rings


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees farenheit.
  2. Unwrap Hugs and place them on a cookie sheet.
  3. Line it with waxed or parchment paper for best results.
  4. Place a pretzel around the hug.
  5. Don't worry if it doesn't drop to the base of the hug.
  6. Bake for approximately three and a half minutes.
  7. Immediately place an M&M in the center of the Hug and press down slightly to flatten.
  8. Cool.
  9. I also place them in refrigerator to speed the set up process.

Well, after reading the ingredients I went straight to the store and bought them. I read the reviews and my favorite candy bar is the take 5 so as a few of the readers said, I used the peanut butter pretzels from Snyder. I also prefer dark chocolate so I used dark chocolate kisses and dark chocolate m&m's and these were to die for. They taste so much like take 5's. They were so easy to make and absolutely delicious. Mine, however, did not look like eyes, but I dont care, they were awesome!!! I would give it 10 stars but, well....they dont have 10

We make these at Christmas with the candy cane flavored kisses, red and green M&Ms, and the square "snap" pretzels. The mint, chocolate, and salty pretzel are a great combination. Thanks for posting!

These were so cute and easy. Apparently I missed the boat on these because when I took them to our family picnic my cousins already knew all about them. They went really fast and were quick to make, which was good because I was having an 'off day' in the cooking department. Thanks for sharing.
