You know... 'the things with the pretzels and hershey's kisses?'

Ready to go into a warm oven

When you are pressed for time, not in the mood to make a holiday goody or want to make something with a child that is quick and easy... these are all good reasons to make something that doesn't really have a real 'name' yet.  You know, it's those things you make with the pretzels and a Hershey's kiss or hug.  Sometimes called a Pretzel Hug or a Pretzel Kiss, but we all know what they are and they are so good and so easy!

A recipe isn't really needed... but perhaps just a photo to get you started!

Use milk chocolate, caramel, dark chocolate, peppermint or use a Rolo Candy

Pretzels - squares or rounds 
Hershey's Kisses, Hershey's Hugs (use milk chocolate, dark chocolate, caramel or even peppermint)
Or use a Rolo 
You can add an M&M on top as well if you like!

Place an unwrapped candy on a pretzel.  I like to line my baking sheets with foil or parchment.
Place in a warm oven 275 is fine until the chocolate is shiny and glossy.  This is usually about 3 minutes for the milk chocolate and sometimes a minute or so more for other flavors.  Remove from the oven, press another pretzel on top or press an M&M candy on top.   Let set until hardened again (up to an hour or two).  That's it!  So easy and so good!  Play with many different variety of chocolate candies for different flavors.   Personally, we like the round pretzels with a caramel kiss and a peanut M&M on top!

My personal favorite? Peppermint!!!

My family's favorite; caramel filled chocolate with a peanut M&M
