A Valentine Yummy

We've been home-bound for a couple of days, so we're all getting a little stir-crazy.  But today brought some relief in the form of sugary goodness.  You'll see that I had a very serious little helper making our after dinner treat. 

If you'd like to make the same concoction, you'll only need three things: heart-shape pretzels, Hershey's Hugs, red and pink M&Ms.  

Step one: Heat your oven to 250.  You just want to soften the hugs, not melt them (ours melted a little too much). 

Step two: Place a hug in the center of each pretzel. 

Step three: Cook the pretzels for just a few minutes or less. Just watch them and when the look soft, pull them out.

Step four: Push an M&M gently into the melted hug. Let them cool (I put mine in the fridge to speed up the process).

Step five: Enjoy 25 a few.

These would make such cute valentine treats. Ours melted a little too much, so you don't really notice the heart shape of the pretzel, but it's there. And most importantly, they are y-u-m-m-y.


  1. So cute!! I will definitely do this with the boys!

  2. I've got everything but the heart shaped pretzels. Where can I find?
