-Snyders pretzel snaps (or generic brand square grid pretzels)
-Hershey kiss hugs, caramel filled kisses and/or peanut butter filled kisses
-Holiday colored M&Ms
Because I’m making these for a bunch of people, I bought a 1 pound bag of pretzels, 4 bags of Hershey’s kisses (2 bags of hugs, 2 bags of chocolate), 2 12.6 ounce bags of red/green M&M’s and Morton Sea Salt. I caught a great sale at Target for all of these items!
First thing’s first…unwrap all of the kisses.
After 1 bag:
After 2 bags:
I placed (112) snaps on the cookie sheet and placed one hugs in the center of each.
Got my chocolate M&M’s ready
I placed the tray in the oven on 350 for what turned out to be too long: 2 minutes. After 1 minute they weren’t soft enough but 2 minutes made them too soft…
I placed the M&M’s on top of each one individually…definitely time consuming and tedious! Trying to get each one to sit perfectly in the center and not touching the melted hugs took patience.
I then sprinkled sea salt on top. I love that salty/sweet combination!
I let them cool off and come to room temp before packaging them.
Mason jars! For you Jacin!
Love the hangtags I got at Target! Ribbon from Michael’s.
I will be doing an all-chocolate version of these and possibly a caramel one. Pictures to follow :)
