  • 1 bag Waffle pretzels
  • 1 12 ounce bag Hershey Hugs (do not use Kisses, for some reason they don't melt as well!)
  • Red sanding sugar
  • 1 bag M&M's
  • Black decorating gel


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees
  2. Lay the pretzels out on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper or silicon baking mat (for easy clean-up)

  3. Place one Hershey Hug on top of each pretzel
  4. Place in oven for 5 -7 minutes (watch them... they should be shiny and soft, not melted)
  5. Quickly sprinkle sanding sugar over Hugs and place a M&M in the center of the Hug ("M" side down)

  6. Put a very small dab of black decorating gel in the center of the M&M (be careful, I put too much and they didn't want to dry!)
  7. Place in freezer for about an hour to set
