Pretzel hugs

If you’re a person like me that loves sweet and salty these little bites of goodness are perfect for you! They take about 15 minutes to make and they can add so much color to any party, holiday or snack for the kids. These could easily be put in a little cello bag as a treat to take someone. They also jut make you happy by the variety of color they bring.

This recipe is one of the easiest recipes I have share with you! If you’re wanting to let your younger kids help in the kitchen this is a good one for them. They can help line the pretzels up or put the candy melts on top of the pretzels. If you have a teen they could put them in the oven and then you could help them put the M&M on top of the chocolate top they don’t burn their fingers.

1 bag Wilton Candy melts or M&M Hugs
