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.
