Hugs And Kisses For Valentine's Day

As you may have guessed, I LOVE VALENTINE’S DAY !  The opportunity to tell people how much you love them….you get to wear red….and, yes, an excuse to eat tons of chocolate – could there be a better day???  Oh and let's not forget CUPID…

Well, this year, I decided to make an easy treat so that I could celebrate with some of my favorite people. They’re pretty to look at, quick and easy to make, and are the perfect salty/sweet combination!

 

 

Here’s the recipe below and some photos to help you along the way.

 

What you’ll need:

 

-        Square Pretzels

-        Hershey’s Hugs (the striped ones look the best)

-        Plain M&M's (Pink/red/white color assortment)

 

 

Directions:

 

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place the pretzels on top with the hugs.  

 

 

 

Bake 4-5 minutes until the chocolate is shiny and soft (but NOT melting – they should still hold their shape).

 

 

Carefully place an M&M in the center of each hug and press it down to spread the chocolate.

 

 

 

Allow to cool completely (a few minutes in the fridge works perfectly) and enjoy!!! 

 

I wrapped mine in cellophane bags and tied ribbons around them for gifts and they came out pretty cute!! 

 

 

The best part about Valentine's Day is that you can share hugs and kisses with all of the people you love! 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy (early) Valentine's Day!

 

What do you love most about Valentine’s Day?

 

XOXO

I make these, but, I place a Rolo piece of candy (which is chocolate and carmel) on top of the pretzel and then bake them a few minutes until the choc melts, and then place a half pecan on the top and mash it into the melting chocolate.  Yum.
