Christmas Pretzel Hugs Ingredients

Making Christmas Pretzel Hugs
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Lay pretzels on cookie sheet in a single layer.
Top each pretzel with a Hershey’s Hug. Bake until the kisses are on the verge of melting but still have their shape (about 4 minutes). Once removed from oven, immediately place an M&M in the center of each and push it down to spread out the hug.
Allow to set before serving. They should take 30-60 minutes to set at room temperature, or about 10-15 minutes if placed in the refrigerator.
