These Pretzel M&M Hugs are festive little chocolate treats! They are easy to make, use only 3 ingredients and you can easily change up the colors for any holiday!


  • 50 square pretzels
  • 50 Hershey’s Hugs chocolates, unwrapped
  • 50 M&Ms (chose holiday appropriate color, if desired)


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

  2. Lay the pretzels out of the baking sheet in an even layer, then top each one with an unwrapped Hershey’s Hug.

  3. Bake for 4-6 minutes, or until the chocolate is shiny and soft, but not completely melted. Remove them from the oven and immediately top each one with an M&M. If the Hugs don’t seem melted enough, pop them back in the oven for another 30 seconds to a minute.

  4. Allow to cool completely, then store or serve.
