Pretzel Hugs

I love sweet and salty food combinations including, but not limited to, Payday candy bars, salted caramels, and chocolate covered pretzels, which is why I love these fun little Christmas snacks. I'm not sure what their official name is, but pretzel hugs sounds good to me.

I first made these last year for an event at church. I was wanting to make them again this year, but needed a reason. There is no way Jeremy and I can, or should, eat all of them! Finally, I had a reason - we were having a luncheon of sorts after church yesterday. Perfect!

They're really easy to make. Line up pretzel waffles (or pretzel rounds if you can find them) on a cookie sheet, lined with wax paper. While you're doing that, get your husband (or someone else) to unwrap all the hugs and set those on top of the pretzels.

Cook at about 275 for 2-3 minutes. These were in for 3 minutes, but probably should have come up a bit earlier.

Place an m&m on top and smash down. Put in the fridge to cool and harden. Eat and enjoy.

(Note, I didn't line my cookie sheet with wax paper and it was hard to get them off. Once I found my pastry scraper it was a lot easier, but I'd recommend using the wax paper for less headaches.)

Very, very nice. Try using parchment paper. I've been using it for a few years now when I make cookies to get the cookies to bake evenly. The parchment paper can be used over and over and over again. I think I'm going to make some and take them to work. Puts everyone in a good mood when there are treats around.

I could eat 1,000 of these if given the opportunity.
