Friday Foodie: Pretzel Hugs

I love sweet and salty combinations. Add in quick and fun and it's a perfect recipe. I saw the original idea on Pinterest, but changed it just a little.

The basic idea is a cookie sheet lined with parchment, wax paper, or foil (which is what I used). Line up your pretzels and top them with Hershey Hugs. (You could also use Kisses. The milk chocolate melts at a different rate than the white hugs so don't mix varieties on the same pan.) Set your oven to around 200 and put in your pan. Wait about 4 minutes, but keep on eye on them. When the chocolate is shiny but still mostly has its shape you want to take them out. I topped some of mine with a second pretzels and others with an M&M (like the idea on Pinterest has). Allow to cool and then enjoy.
