These little candy type morsels are absolutly delicious and make a fabulous gift for Christmas or any special occasion!
My sister in law Kim passed this recipe on to me a few years ago.

So easy....3 ingrediants in all!!!

If you have young ones get them involved in "peeling" the HUGS or sprinkling the M&M's...

Hope you all enjoy these delicious morsels! Personally I have always thought that the person who thought of simply sticking a pretzel in chocolate should receieve an Iron Chef achievement :):)

How to Make Pretzel Candy Hugs


  1. Place parchment down on a couple of cookie sheets
    Place as many pretzels on the two cookie sheet as you have Hugs for.

    Remove from oven and immediately place 3 regular size M&M's on each melted Hug..just sprinkle them on, they will hold in place as the Hug firms up...use one or two extra M&M's if using the mini baking kind.
  2. Let cool and wrap in cellophane gift bags and tie with coordinating ribbon...or serve on a platter if not gift giving.
  3. These are as delicious as they are pretty and so much fun to bring to a baby shower using pink and blue M&Ms...or a bridal shower using the wedding colors of the bridesmaid dresses, a graduation using school colors, a super bowl party using team colors or for Halloween using Black and Orange M&M's, Red White and Blue for July 4th, and of couse the Red and Green for Christmas...the color scheme can go on and on...have fun with it!! You can get specific colored M&M's at the Mall or online...a bit pricy I have to warn you...but if its for a specail occasion I'll spluge, otherwise I mostly use the regular multi colored M&M's
